Worried about damaging your teeth? Get your South East London dentist to fit a mouth guard

04 / 09 / 2011

You only get one set of natural teeth in your life time so it is best to take care of them as best you can. To this end, a mouth guard might be required in certain circumstances if you are participating in some activities and past-times. Cracking or chipping a tooth because it has been subject to an unforeseen impact can be a hassle to sort out and losing a tooth entirely will be even more so. Your South East London dentist can advise you about wearing a mouth guard to protect your mouth.

Mouth guards are commonly worn by those who play rugby, as well as other sports where physical injury is a risk, such as hockey, ice hockey, lacrosse and boxing. Several affordable types of mouth guard can be bought from sports shops but one should bear in mind that these offer the minimum level of protection possible with a mouth guard. If you are going to use one of these types of mouth guard, you should opt for a ‘boil and bite’ protector because these are slightly more tailored to the shape of your mouth.

Far and away the most comprehensive level of protection is given by mouth guards that are specially made by your dentist who will take moulds of your teeth in order to construct the guard. These protectors fit tightly to your teeth and therefore protect them well if an impact to the mouth is sustained. They can also be worn by patients who suffer from bruxism so that they are not wearing away the enamel from their teeth when they grind them together during sleep.
