Keeping teeth safe
Australia is a great sporting nation and many children are involved in a range of sporting activities. But no matter what game or activity your child participates in, of all the protective equipment they may need, the most essential item in their bag should be a custom-fitted mouthguard from John Street Dental.
A mouthguard from the supermarket or chemist will offer only very limited protection as they are a one size fits all.
A customised mouthguard from John Street Dental that is perfectly moulded to your child’s teeth and mouth shape will not just protect teeth, it will also make it easier to breathe and add extra cushioning against an accidental blow to the face. Customised mouthguards can also reduce the possibility or severity of a concussion.
A John Street Dental created mouthguard should be worn not just when playing but also during training. This will ensure your child becomes familiar and comfortable wearing it so they can breathe normally
To care for a mouthguard, ensure it’s kept away from heat and direct sunlight as this can cause it to warp and affect its fit and effectiveness. You should also rinse it after use and place it in its designated case to dry. This will prevent the growth of bacteria.
Before next season starts get a customised mouthguard for you or your child from John Street Dental.
