Preventative Dentistry at Woodville & Seaton Dental Clinic
Did you know that mouth guards or ‘gum shields’ were originally developed by Woolfe Krause, a London Dentist way back in 1890?
Mouth guards or ‘mouth protector’ have come a long way since then – but the objective is still the same – to protect you from injuries sustained in high impact activities and sports, Such injuries could include:
- Broken and cracked teeth
- Knocked out teeth
- Cut lips and bruising of the mouth
- Trauma to the tongue
- Fractures to the jaw
The rubberised material spreads the force across the jaw, and reduces the risk of serious damage and injury to the teeth, gums and lips.
Mouth guards are worn over your top teeth and protect your teeth and soft tissue.
Don’t risk spending lots of money in lengthy reconstructive dental work. The expense, pain, discomfort, and stress can all be avoided. Prevent damage and injury to your teeth, jaw and gums – choose a personalised dentist custom-made mouthguard.
The great thing about mouthguards is that the more you wear it, the more comfortable it will become – and soon enough you will even be able to talk with it on!
The cost of custom mouthguards is often a point of concern for patients. Over the counter mouthguards have their limitations. They often fit poorly, are uncomfortable, may wear out quickly, and provide minimal protection in contact sports, and may hinder your ability to speak and breathe.
The custom-made mouthguard is made from high quality materials, is professionally fitted and precise and tailored to your bite.
