Mouthguards are made from a plastic material called Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA). EVA is strong and tough and can be easily moulded to fit precisely over your teeth and gums. A custom made mouthguard will stay in place better and allow you to concentrate on getting in the sporting action.
Mouthguards are the most effective protective pieces of equipment to help prevent injury to the mouth – protecting the teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue. A mouthguard does not only protect your mouth, it can also cushion blows to the mouth or jaw therefore preventing damage to the jaw, neck or brain. A mouthguard should be warn during training and on gameday.
Having a dentist take special impressions will create a guard to perfectly fit your mouth, teeth and gums, providing ultimate protection, stabilty and comfort. The procedure is very simple; your dentist will take moulds of your teeth. This will be used to fabricate your custom made guard which can be designed in a wide selection of team and popular colours.
Your sports mouth guard will need replacing over time. Just bring it along to your check-ups and your dentist will inspect it for wear and tear.
