Protect your teeth during sports with Mouthguards from Beresford Dental – The Smile Pros in Mermaid Waters, Gold Coast. Beresford Dental – The Smile Pros offer mouthguards for patients of all ages. We encourage children playing any sport (even if it’s not considered a contact sport) to wear a mouthguard. This will help to protect their teeth and to prevent any series dental injury or accident. A mouthguard is a simple precaution, that can help to put your mind at ease. Custom-made mouthguard You could buy a mouthguard from your local chemist. And it will provide some measure of protection. However, it cannot provide the same level of care that a custom-made mouthguard can. A mouthguard from the chemist is a one-size-fits all model. Whereas from a dentist your mouthguard is customised to suit your dental needs. This means, generally, that a custom-made mouthguard will take better care of your teeth, gums and jaw. The other advantage of a custom-made mouthguard is that you can bring it with you to your regular dental appointments. This is an advantage because it means you can make sure the mouthguard is still providing the necessary amount of support. Which is better than finding out during a game.
