Sport, leisure and recreation activities are the most common cause of dental injuries. Team sports such as football (league, union or AFL), martial arts, hockey and basketball are a few high risk sports where contact with equipment, player collisions or falling is possible and carries a risk of dental injury.
Common dental injuries include:
- Cut lips, gums, cheeks or tongue
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Knocked out teeth
- Broken jaw.
Dental injuries can be painful, disfiguring, and may result in lengthy (and expensive) dental treatment.
A protective mouthguard should:
- Be comfortable
- Not painful
- Well fitting providing a snug fit around your teeth and gums
- Not loose or falling out
- Cover your teeth and the full surface area of your gums right up under the upper lip.
