With Australian research revealing one third of dental injuries are sports-related, mouth guards are an essential requirement for all Melbourne sportsmen. Mouthguards protect the teeth and oral cavity by providing a thick cushioning that takes the force of sporting impact. Not only do mouth guards prevent chipping, breakage and loss of teeth, but they can also decrease the severity and probability of head, neck and oral cavity injuries. The mouth guard achieves this by preventing the lower jaw from being jammed into the lower jaw. In doing so, sportsmen are no longer at risk of serious injuries including jaw fractures, neck injuries, unconsciousness, cerebral haemorrhages and concussion.
