Contemporary mouthguards are made from ethylene vinyl acetate, which is a durable and easily malleable substance, that will perfectly fit the make up of your teeth. Mouthguards are the most effective way to minimise the risk of severe trauma during sporting matches, helping to protect your teeth, lips and cheeks from any damage as a result of a knock or hit. Mouthguards have also been found to help prevent concussions and any serious damage to your neck.
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth as you bite downwards, and then manufacture a mouthguard that perfectly fits and reinforces the upper section of your teeth. Mouthguards require replacement after a certain amount of time, and your dentist can check the health of your mouthguard on your next check-up.
