Guard your Mouth - Mouthguard Awareness

According to the May/June 2014 edition of general dentistry news item published - "when it comes to buying a mouthguard, parents who want to reduce their child's risk of a sports-related concussion /mouth trauma should visit a dentist instead of a sports shop".

Children wearing over the counter mouthguards are TWICE as likely to suffer than those wearing custom-made mouthguards provided by their dentist.

Mouthguard thickness has been shown to be a factor that contributes to the level of protection. The average thickness of the custom-made mouthguards in this study was 3.50 millimeters, while the average thickness of the over the counter mouthguards was only 1.65 millimeters.

Melton Orthodontics advises parents to invest in a custom-made mouthguard to keep their active youngster injury free!
