Custom Mouth Guard Caringbah
Do you participate in basketball, football, gymnastics, boxing, wrestling, skydiving, skateboarding, or any other active sports? If yes, it is recommended highly recommended that you wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and the soft tissues of your mouth.
Some of the most common sports injuries include injuries to the mouth, teeth and jaw. Mouth guards can help protect your teeth and gums.
Consult with The Caringbah Dentists to choose the right type of mouth guard for you. It is important to pick the right mouthguard because the effectiveness varies.
It is not just about picking a mouthguard that fits your mouth perfectly but it must also offer great shock absorption. The mouth guard must also be thin enough to make it easy to breathe, talk, or drink fluids while wearing them. If you wear braces, you need to be especially careful to choose the right mouthguard.
Sports related dental injuries
Dental injuries are usually of four different types: fracture, avulsion, intrusion, and luxation. All of these injuries can happen during sports. Fracture includes breaking and chipping of the teeth. When an entire tooth is knocked out completely, it is called avulsion. When the tooth is still inside the socket, but it is positioned wrongly, it is called luxation. Intrusion injury happens when the tooth is pushed up into the gums.
All of these injuries can be prevented to a significant extent by wearing the right type of mouth guards.
Grinding of the teeth
Bruxism is a condition where you unconsciously clench and grinding your teeth mostly while asleep. This grinding of the teeth can lead to wear and tear, abnormal bite, and other complications of the teeth. Anti-bruxism night guards can provide relief by reducing the grinding and clenching that happens during the night.
