AT Cottes­loe Den­tal, we see nu­mer­ous pa­tients each year with den­tal in­juries that may have been pre­vented or min­imised by wear­ing a cus­tom-made mouth­guard, says den­tist Phillip Keenan.

“Ob­vi­ous sports such as foot­ball and rugby carry the risk of col­li­sion, but there are many sports such as soc­cer, hockey, bas­ket­ball and net­ball among oth­ers where ac­ci­den­tal con­tact to the face may oc­cur,” he said.

“A mouth­guard helps to ab­sorb the en­ergy of a blow to the face which could re­sult in chipped or bro­ken teeth, in­ter­nal dam­age to the tooth or tooth loss.”

Cottes­loe Den­tal pro­vides cus­tom-fit­ted mouth­guards and can in­spect your mouth­guard dur­ing a regular den­tal check- up. Visit www. cottes­loe­den­tal. com. au or call Cottes­loe Den­tal on 9384 1644.
