Sports and your dental health.
Contact sports seasson is here, how to protect your teeth from nasty injuries.
The fun of playing any contact sport can easily come to an end when an incident occurs were the health of the player is affected. Some of such incidents can involve the player’s teeth, there are too many teeth related injuries that range from chipped to dislodged teeth, that could have been avoided had a properly fit mouthguard been worn.
According to Standards Australia-Guidelines for the fabrication, use and maintenance of Sports mouthguards: “over-the-counter mouthguards available through pharmacies are generally ill-fitting and can restrict normal speech and breathing. The best protection is obtained by a custom-fitted mouthguard available through a dentist”.
