Sports Injuries

If you play a contact sport, wearing a custom-made mouthguard will protect your teeth from damage.

The British Dental Association advises against shop-bought mouthguards because they may not fit correctly and so won’t protect your teeth properly.

30% of all 16-year-olds are have suffered an injury to their teeth resulting in permanent damage.
20% of these injuries occurred while taking part in organised sport.

Advice

Children and adults should wear a mouthguard for playing any contact sport, including:

  • Rugby
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Squash
  • Martial arts
  • Mountain biking
  • Horse riding

The Rugby Football Union and English Hockey Association both recommend using custom-made mouthguards.

Wearing a mouthguard doesn’t just help protect your teeth – it protects your brain too. By wearing a mouthguard, you spread the force of any impact and are less likely to suffer a concussion.

Contact Stella Maris Dental to find out more about our custom-made mouthguards. They come in a carry case and are individually named. Choose from 20 different colours, plain or striped, medium or heavyweight.
