Why use a dental mouthguard?

Sports are a vital part of life for children and adults that keep us fit and healthy. However, they can also lead to injury that can take you out of the game or rack up your dental bill. So, why wear a mouthguard? In the same way helmets protect against head trauma, mouthguards prevent injuries to the face and mouth.
Now you may ask, what is wrong with the old fashioned “boil and bite” mouthguards? Over-the-counter mouthguards are poor fitting, and the lack of resilience fails to provide adequate protection for the entire mouth. With these injury still commonly occurs.
Professionally made mouthguards are the best choice for all contact sports because they are specifically moulded to your mouth. They are perfectly fitted, comfortable, will not shift or fall out, and will not restrict your breathing.
Dental mouthguards are moulded to your teeth so that impact is spread evenly, highly reducing the chance of fractures and injury.
Borders of the mouthguard extend over the gums to protect the deep roots and supporting bone from fractures.
Trimmed to fit over where the support is needed only, reducing bulkiness and chances of gagging that can occur with mouthguards that over-extend.
