Custom Mouth Guards In North Lakes
Preventative sports care
Playing sports brings with it the risk of lost, broken, moved or chipped teeth, internal tooth injury, gum injuries and even broken jaws. So it makes sense to wear a mouth guard to significantly reduce or circumvent the effects of a facial impact on your teeth. Mouth guards will help in some way but the benefit of using a custom fit dental mouth guard means your risk of injury is significantly more reduced.
A mouth guard works by absorbing and spreading the impact to the face which will greatly reduce or completely avoid the mouth injury. Dental injuries can be time consuming and expensive to fix so the initial cost of the custom mouth guard itself will undoubtedly save you money in the long run. Dental injuries can also affect the form and function of your teeth which can create further problems down the track.
