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.
