Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental trauma, especially in school aged children. Dental injuries may include fractured, displaced or knocked out teeth. We recommend that all children involved in contact sports should wear a mouthguard to reduce the traumatic impacts of a blow to the mouth.
A custom fitted mouthguard ensures the maximum protection and comfort and do not fall out. They allow your child to speak clearly and will not restrict breathing. Construction of a custom fitted mouthguard involves an impression taken at our surgery – the hardest part is selecting a colour!
