Reasons to get Sports Mouthguard
Maybe it was the AFL or your mate who plays a lot of basketball wearing a bright, white mouthguard that first put this protective device on your radar. Many people are only familiar with them because of how prominent they are in contact sports but do you actually know anything else about mouthguards?
The sports mouthguard is popular for good reason. It is very useful for preventing injuries in high-contact games like footy, rugby, basketball, or boxing but did you know wearing a mouthguard is beneficial in a lot of different situations? To name a few:
- In athletics, prevent injury from falls and contact with equipment
- In injury-prone recreational activities like cycling or skateboarding
- Prevent kids’ dental and jaw injuries during sports and play activities
- Protect trainers and workers in sports, athletics, and recreational activities
This form of protection is available to people of all ages, you can even get a custom mouthguard for braces. While any level of protection is good in impact sports, a custom mouthguard will likely be more durable and more comfortable as it is tailored to your mouth.
Mouthguard prices can vary but are generally affordable. A kids mouthguard from the chemist that you picked up on game day might seem cheaper than a custom mouthguard for a dental professional but if you have private health insurance, the custom product will not cost you anything!
There is no gap on custom mouthguards with private health at Nambour Smiles, so you can enjoy maximum protection from a comfortably fitted mouthguard at no extra cost, otherwise, it is only $99.
