MOUTHGUARDS – AN INNOVATIVE WAY TO SAFEGUARD YOUR MOUTH
Dental injuries are common in contact sports. It is always wise to wear a mouthguard if you play sports such as rugby, cricket, hockey, and football. Any kind of direct hit or impact can chip or damage your tooth or jaw bone. At BEAUTICA, we offer premium quality mouthguards that can safeguard your mouth during contact sport.
A mouthguard is a protective device that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips, and gums. They are made of see-through plastic in colors you prefer. It is also used as a treatment for bruxism– involuntary habitual grinding of teeth during sleep –or if you are doing some teeth whitening treatments or for sleep apnoea.
There are two types of mouthguards available: Over the counter and tailor-made. It is always the best to wear a professional, custom-made mouthguard designed by a dentist. A tailor-made mouthguard will fit exactly over your teeth and gums to cushion and protect your teeth, gums, and jaw from damages. They can also be custom-made to wear at night if you are suffering from bruxism.
Our dentists will design the mouthguard in synch with the exact shape of your jaw, ensuring maximum comfort, protection, and durability. First, they’ll take an impression of your teeth in order to make the mouthguard in accordance with the size and shape of your teeth and gums. They’ll also provide you with the necessary care instructions and a container to protect it when you are not wearing it. The life of a mouthguard depends upon how well you take care of it. Scrubbing and keeping it out of extreme heat and light can increase its durability.
