At Road Dental, we provide custom, correctly fitted mouthguards. We will ensure that your teeth are protected as much as possible when participating in sport. Our professional approach means that you will receive a top quality mouthguard that is specifically made to fit your teeth. A ‘one size fits all’ mouthguard will simply not deliver the same degree of protection.
Whether you are playing sport in a recreational or a professional capacity, you should wear a custom mouthguard at all times. Every training session, every match. In other words, to reduce the risk of dental injury, you should always wear a fitted mouthguard when participating in a sport.
It is mandatory to wear mouthguards in many sports where collision is part of the game. These sports include all forms of rugby, AFL, hockey, boxing, and martial arts. This goes a long way in preventing dental injuries to people participating in these sports.
However, just because a sport is not a contact sport does not mean that dental injuries don’t occur. There are many sports where accidental collision occurs, such as cricket, basketball, netball, touch football, soccer, etc. Because mouthguards are not mandatory in these sports, it is often these participants who suffer dental trauma.
