If you regularly engage in physical contact sports, or find yourself clenching your jaw often, Dr Britt strongly advises that you consider getting yourself a custom-fit mouthguard. Your smile, after all, is an asset that should be protected. Mouthguards can safeguard your teeth from potentially traumatic and costly dental and oral injuries – including broken jaws and fractured/knocked out teeth.
Our experience is that traditional store-bought or over-the-counter mouthguards are inferior to custom-fitted ones. They generally don’t fit the mouth securely and therefore cannot adequately protect your teeth against blow or injury. Custom fitted guards are designed to fit the exact contours of your mouth, balance your bite and allow normal speech and breathing.
You can also personalise your sports mouthguard using a range of colours to match your team jersey!
