Have you ever thought about how it would feel if you lost one or two of your front teeth? You probably would not smile much. Face-to-face conversations would be uncomfortable. It would not be easy pronouncing certain words. And how about chewing pizza or an apple?
Until your teeth are gone, you might not miss them. Teen and adult week-end warriors experience thousands of injuries each year on the plying fields, on the basketball court, while biking or skating, and during other physical activities. Injuries to the face in nearly every sport can harm your teeth, lips, cheeks, and tongue. A properly fitted mouthguard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear that can protect your teeth and your smile. You may have seen them used in contact sports, such as footbal, boxing, ultimate fighting, ice hockey, lacrosse and women’s field hockey. Mouthguards help protect even in non-contact sports such as gymnasticss. Many dental and medical experts recommend that a mouthguard be worn for any recreational activity that poses a RISK OF INJURY TO THE MOUTH.
Choosing a Mouthguard
3 types of mouthguards:
≫ the ready-made, or stock mouthguard;
≫ the mouth-formed“boil-and-bite” mouthguard;
≫ the custom-made mouthguard made by a denturist;
All properly fitted mouthguards provide varying degree of protection.
A custom-fitted mouthguard professionally made in the denture clinic can be tailored to the demands of the athlete and the sport. The most effective mouthguard should have several features. It should be resilient, tear-resistant and, of course, scomfortable to wear. It must fit properly, be durable and easy to clean, and not restrict your speech or breathing. A mouthguard strap can be fastened to most types of mouthguards. The strap protects against loss and allows the mouthguard to be suspended from a face mask when the athlete is not at play. Generally, a mouthguard covers only upper teeth. If you have a protruding forward upper jaw, your denturist may recommend that your lower teeth also be covered.
