Anyone who participates in a full contact or semi contact sport should wear a mouthguard.
What does a Mouthguard do?
A mouthguard helps absorb the shock experienced by a blow to the face that might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw. A heavy, collision can result in chipped or broken teeth, internal damage to a tooth, tooth loss, injuries to the soft tissue of the mouth, and, in severe cases, concussion or a broken jaw. Injuries like these can lead to long and potentially expensive treatment to restore the teeth and mouth back to normal function and appearance.
When do I wear a Mouthguard?
Mouthguards should be worn whilst playing and training for any sport that could involve contact to the face.
How often should I replace my Mouthguard?
Children's Mouthguards should be replaced every twelve months, even if they appear to be in good condition. This is because their mouth is still growing and new teeth can alter their fit.
