Why are Mouthguards Important?

Mouthguards are necessary for those that practice different types of contact sports such as boxing, hockey, derby, rugby, and water polo where there are high chances of injury to the teeth.

Mouthguards offer protection to the teeth as well as oral cavity through a thick layering which absorbs the impact of the sport. Mouthguards aren’t only effective at preventing breakage, knockout, or loss to the teeth. They reduce the chances of experiencing surrounding injuries to the head or neck too.

A mouthguard will do this by preventing collision to the lower jaw. This saves the participant from serious accidents like jaw fractures, concussions, cerebral hemorrhages, or neck injuries.

Types of Mouthguards

Mouthguards come in numerous shapes, sizes, designs, and colours. However, they can be generally classified into two major groups.

  •   The Boil and Bite Mouthguard

This specific mouthguard is fabricated using thermoplastic which makes it cost-effective compared to other high-quality mouthguards made custom-crafted by dentists. The only disadvantage is that these specific mouthguards can awkwardly fit in your mouth or be difficult to adjust. This could interrupt your breathing or speech when playing a sport.

  •   Custom Dentist-made Mouthguards

We at All Smiles Family Dental recommend having a custom-designed mouthguard from a dentist for those into contact sports. Compared to regular ones, such mouthguards fit comfortably and offer good stability. These provide well-rounded protection against any type of dental trauma and can allow better breathing and speaking.
