Avoid serious dental problems that can result from a contact sports injury with a custom made mouthguard. It has been shown that a mouthguard made to fit you closely offers the better protection that a shop bought one against the 3 main contact sport dental injuries
damage to the teeth
jaw joint injury
We have seen many injuries from simple chipping, right through to major breakages of teeth from the upper and lower jaws clashing together. Heads, hockey balls, feet and lots more coming into sudden and unexpected contact with the lips and mouth are just as damaging. At best the injury is uncomfortable and temporary but without correct protection serious damage to the teeth is not uncommon. Although thankfully few injuries result in teeth being lost outright immediately, a very heavy blow can lead to long term problems like nerve death and resorption of the teeth all of which can seriously shorten their lifespans.
We know that as children grown a new mouthguard each year may feel like a bit of an investment but the benefits of an affordable well made mouthguard do substantially outweigh the lifetime costs that a damaged tooth can result in. As children grow they gain body mass and momentum so when deciding when to get your child a custom mouthguard do think about the size of the people they may be competing against or the speed / hardness of the hockey/lacrosse stick that may be wielded, not just their own size or competence!
We can provide very competitively priced single colour mouthguards or more elaborate multicolour designs if you wish.
