Getting organised for winter sports

As parents and carers of kids heading towards autumn /winter sports, ensuring the well-being of our children is a top priority, especially when it comes to their involvement in sports and physical activities.

One often overlooked yet crucial aspect of their safety is the use of properly fitted mouthguards. Mouthguard Studio at East Gosford can make the process easy for everyone!

We’re often focused on the sports uniforms, attending training, figuring out who’s washing the uniforms this week, who’s going to organise the fundraising BBQ / half-time refreshments /orange quarters for the kids before we even think about the mouthguard and extra protective gear our kids need.

Mouthguard Studio makes it easy for everyone to get a mouthguard fitted and ready before the first whistle is blown this sports season!

These seemingly simple devices play a significant role in preventing dental injuries and safeguarding those precious smiles.

Children, as we know, are naturally active, and whether playing soccer, rugby, or basketball or participating in martial arts, the risk of oral injuries is present.

A well-fitted mouthguard acts as a protective barrier, absorbing and dispersing the impact forces that could otherwise lead to broken teeth, lip lacerations, or jaw injuries.

Studies have shown that athletes who don’t wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to experience dental injuries.

Beyond the immediate physical protection, mouthguards contribute to long-term oral health. A properly fitted mouthguard helps to reduce the risk of concussions by absorbing shock and stabilising the head and neck during impact. This is especially crucial during childhood when the teeth and jaw are still developing. Preventing dental injuries also avoids the need for costly and invasive dental procedures, ensuring a smoother journey into adulthood with a healthy, intact smile.

Choosing the right mouthguard is essential. This is where the team at Mouthguard Studio can help. Custom-fitted mouthguards, crafted by dental professionals, offer the best comfort and protection. They provide a snug fit, allowing easy breathing and communication while safeguarding against potential injuries. Over-the-counter may not offer the same level of protection and comfort.

Investing in a properly fitted mouthguard for your child is a small step that can significantly impact their safety and oral health. By prioritising prevention, parents can empower young athletes to enjoy sports confidently, knowing their smiles are well-protected on and off the field.
