Why do you need a custom fitted mouthguard from Bachmann Orthodontics?
Playing contact sports without a mouth guard has been likened to rally driving without a seat belt! A simple injury can leave you with a gap in your smile. A mouthguard is a protective device that prevents injury to the teeth, lips and gums.
But not all mouthguards are created equal, and a store bought mouthguard will never give you the protection of a custom designed mouthguard.
Why is a custom mouth guard necessary?
Store bought mouthguards don’t encase the teeth or cover the back molars. They tend not to fit very well, lose their shape, fall out in the middle of activity, and often have to be replaced. They can also make breathing and talking difficult, and feel bulky in the mouth.
A properly fitted mouthguard is especially important for people who wear braces or have fixed bridge work. A blow to the face could damage the brackets or other fixed orthodontic equipment. A mouthguard also provides a barrier between the braces and your cheek or lips, limiting the risk of soft tissue injuries.
Bachmann Orthodontics in Auckland create the perfect fitting mouthguard that allows for speaking and doesn’t limit breathing. Our custom made mouthguards will stay firmly in place during action and help protect your teeth from injury.
If you or your child play contact sport, make a custom fitted mouthguard part of your team uniform.
