Dentists in South East London advise patients to get mouth guards fitted

01 / 04 / 2011

Protecting your teeth is absolutely crucial. Hopefully you are brushing your teeth and flossing, as well as paying regular visits to your dentist so that your teeth stay in good health. But it is possible that you are putting your teeth in danger because of activities or hobbies that you undertake. If this is the case then South East London dentists advise you to get a mouth guard so that your teeth don’t get damaged.

Certain sports can put your teeth at risk of being harmed. Rugby, American football, lacrosse and both field and ice hockey can involve your mouth suffering from impact either from another player or one of the implements that is used. In mountain biking, any fall from the bicycle can injure the mouth. These injuries might leave you with teeth that get cracked or chipped or even fall out.

Thankfully mouth guards are widely available. The most basic kind of mouth guard can be purchased from any high street sports retailer. These stock products are affordable and can be worn immediately but the protection they offer is only minimal. So called ‘boil and bite’ mouth guards offer a higher level of production because they are moulded to the unique shape of your mouth by plunging them into boiling water and then biting into them.

The highest degree of protection is offered by mouth guards which are fitted individually by your dentist. These are constructed to fit your mouth perfectly and protect your teeth from heavy impact. It is recommended that you wear some kind of mouth guard if you indulge in any of the afore mentioned activities. It is better, after all, to protect your teeth than to have to deal with the consequences of damage.
