Wearing a custom fitted mouthguard while participating in sport is vitally important to help prevent dental injuries. Anyone who participates in a sport that carries risk of contact to the face or collision sports should wear a mouthguard whilst playing and training. This includes sports such as football, boxing, rugby, hockey, netball, soccer, horse riding, skateboarding, inline skating, skiing, trampolining, BMX bike riding, lacrosse and water polo.
The Australian Dental Association recommends wearing a professionally custom fitted mouthguard rather than ‘over the counter’ mouthguards. Custom mouthguards won’t slip or fall out of the mouth and don’t require any effort to keep in, they offer maximum resistance against being dislodged and absorb the shock experienced by a blow to the face preventing injury to the mouth.
