Sporty kids need guard

Penrith Press - - NEWS -

PAR­ENTS are be­ing warned that cheap mouth­guards posed dan­gers to sporty kids across dif­fer­ent codes.

The na­tion’s big­gest in­surer, Bupa, said chil­dren should be of­fered the same pro­tec­tion as NRL play­ers who are be­ing told ‘boil and bite’ mouth­guards are not rec­om­mended for any level of play as they can dis­lodge.

Bupa’s prin­ci­pal den­tist Dr Joseph Badr said cus­tom­made mouth­gards “do cost more than a boil and bite but this is re­ally a case of you get what you pay for’’.
