Avoid the pain of knocked out teeth with mouth guard from London SE1 dentist

08 / 08 / 2010

If you have ever played or watched a game of rugby you will have noticed that the players all wear mouth guards. This is because in a high-impact game like rugby your teeth are at a great risk of being knocked out during a collision. Protecting your teeth during sporting activity is very important as over half the knocked out or broken teeth seen by dentists occur as the result of sporting injuries that could have been prevented. And it is not just rugby that poses a threat to your teeth. Football, cricket, any form of martial art or boxing can all be dangerous as can any form of motor sport.

It may seem a little extreme to wear a mouth guard when taking part in any sporting activity, but the reality of a knocked out tooth is no laughing matter. Not only will you have the initial pain and sometimes agony of the accident but it doesn’t stop there. Knocked out teeth often need hours of very unpleasant and expensive dental treatment to fix. If left, missing teeth will cause an increase in dental cavities, ruin the appearance of your smile and even cause problems with your profile and facial tissue.

You’re beginning to see why mouth guards are so important. It is possible to buy mouth guards in the high street sports shops, but these are often very ill-fitting and frequently offer little more protection than not wearing one at all. Your South East London dentist will be able to offer you a fully prepared and specially designed mouth guard that will spread the impact of any collision or accident, keeping your teeth safe and your smile intact. For just a few pounds you could save yourself hours of agony and a huge amount of cash on dental replacements.
