The use of mouthguards are essential to prevent injuries to the oro-facial region. A study found that 75 percent of oral-facial injuries occurred among athletes who did not wear a mouthguard. Furthermore, dental trauma was found to be 60 times more likely for those who wore no mouthguard than for those who did.
It is estimated that roughly 90 percent of athletes use over-the-counter mouthguards. The main problems with this type of mouthguard include: discomfort, loose fit, difficulty breathing, and difficulty speaking.
These mouthguards are not recommended because of the lack of retention, and they do not cover and protect all of the back teeth during impact and are too thin to be protective.
A fitted mouthguard from your dentist offers the best protection. These mouth guards are vacuum-made from an exact model of the individual's teeth.
These mouthguards are comfortable as they have an excellent fit, causes minimal interference with speech, and are sufficiently thick to protect the teeth. Invest in a properly fitted mouth guard and ensure that you and your child's teeth has the maximal protection during sporting activities.
