Thousands of people suffer unnecessary dental injuries because they don’t wear mouthguards
According to the Australian Dental Association, only 36% of children, even in areas like Capalaba and Victoria Point, use a sports mouthguard. Considering the vital role mouthguards play in overall health, this figure is startling. It’s crucial to note that sports mouthguards do more than just safeguard your teeth.
There are in fact 5 reasons why a mouthguard is good for:
The most effective mouthguard option
You have two options for mouthguards: over-the-counter or custom-fitted. The issue with over-the-counter mouthguards is they don’t fit snuggly on your teeth. Generally, this type of mouthguard requires you to put it in hot water and then mould it to your teeth. Which is a problem because—according to the ADA—it lessens the effectiveness of the mouthguard. What this means is there’s a good chance, even while wearing an over-the-counter mouthguard, that you are risking damaging your teeth.

Taking care of your mouthguard
Looking after your sports mouthguard is a necessary part of ensuring long-term effectiveness. Keeping it out of the sun and storing in its container will help it to keep its shape. Also, keep it away from your animals. You know that joke about your dog? It will eat your sports mouthguard if left unguarded.
