Sports safety

We Encourage Kids, Teenagers and Adults to play sports, get Moving, be active and decrease their screen time yet Just about every sport carries the risk of oral injury, According to the Australian Dental Association, every year Thousands of Australian kids are treated for Facial and dental injuries that could have been avoided if they had been using mouth guards.
A mouth guard is a thick, often spongy or Hard shield that fits over your teeth comfortably, they are usually worn during sports and other activities that involve a high risk of impact to the face.
Dental injuries can be painful, disfiguring and expensive to treat., It may result in time off work or school to recover, and lengthy dental treatment, A mouth guard, custom-fitted by your dentist and worn every time you play, train or compete will protect against dental injuries and will protect your teeth, lips and Jaw.
Not only Team sports yet Skateboarding, Scooter ridding, Ice skating, snow boarding, cycling and mountain biking may need protection as well, specially if you are Stuntman, stunt woman or a Daredevil and like to show off.
Most of sports are included specially Boxing, Hockey, Football, Rugby, Gymnastics, martial arts, kickboxing, wrestling, Soccer, basketball, softball and Hockey.
the Custom made Mouth Guard will provide you with real cushioning and protection, not like the boil and bite types where most of the material between the teeth is displaced where it is needed the most for Cushioning.
