Research shows one in five Australian children will suffer a dental trauma by the age of 14, the majority of which occur playing sport. That is why it is vital to protect young mouths with a custom fitted sports mouthguard.
Unlike over the counter mouthguards you can buy at the chemist, a custom fitted mouthguard will help to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to the face, which would otherwise result in broken teeth or an injury to the lips, tongue, face or jaw.
At Riverport Dental, we encourage children to participate in sports but want to ensure their valuable teeth are protected when doing so. Custom fitted mouthguards are the only type of mouthguard recommended by dentists and are the most effective in preventing injury to the teeth and jaws.
