A mouth guard is an over-the-teeth protective appliance that is thick and flexible. When your kids play sports or engage in other activities involving contact with the face, mouthguards protect them. They are available in various colours, and we can make them in your team’s colours. They block any direct impacts on your face, reducing your risk for severe tooth breakage or even concussions.
People who have a habit of grinding their teeth are more prone to jaw issues. Mouth guards protect them from getting jaw problems. Sometimes mouth guards are worn to treat sleep apnoea or snoring. Ask your dentist in Kallangur, North Lakes, Murramba Downs, Petrie, Margate, Strathpine, MangoHill, and the nearby areas about getting mouthguards.
There Are Two Varieties of Orthodontic Mouthguards:
Custom-fitted mouth guards
Boil-and-Bite mouth guards
Our Kallangur dentists favour custom mouthguards because they offer the best protection and are incredibly pleasant to wear.
Who Requires a Mouth Guard in Australia?
Anyone who participates in contact sports, including football, boxing, soccer, ice hockey, basketball, lacrosse, and field hockey, should wear mouthguards, whether they are kids or adults.
However, a protective mouth guard is helpful even for people who participate in noncontact sports like gymnastics or any leisure activity. It increases the risk of mouth injuries such skateboarding or mountain biking.
Mouthguards can also reduce snoring or sleep apnea. It is caused by soft tissue vibrations in the upper airway. Snoring mouth guards force the lower jaw forward to keep the airway open. It will reduce the vibrations of the tissues and snoring.
How to Maintain Your Mouthguard?
Rinse your mouthguard with cold water or mouthwash before and after each use, or clean it with a toothbrush and mild soap.
Rinse the mouth guard thoroughly in cool, soapy water.
Place the mouth guard in a reliable, perforated container to store or transport it. Airflow is made possible, and the risk of damage is decreased. If the mouth guard is acrylic, keep it in fresh water.
They will lose their shape if exposed to heat over a long time. Therefore, never leave mouthguards outside or in a moving car. Keep the mouth guard away from hot surfaces, hot water, and direct sunlight to prevent it from losing shape. They can be fixed or repaired.
Check the mouthguard from time to time for everyday wear. Replace it if you detect any tears or holes in it. If it gets loose or is uncomfortable, also you have to go for a new one.
Please put them in mouthwash every week to remove any bacterial buildup.
After playing, keep the games in a cold, ventilated container. Please establish a routine of restoring them to your bag after games.
Bring the mouth guard to your routine dental appointment so your dentist can examine it.
