Mouth guards should be used in any physical activity with a high risk for head injuries, including sports like baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, skateboarding and gymnastics. By protecting your teeth, you can save yourself painful dental treatments that could cost you thousands of dollars in tooth replacement. The Adrian Haigh Denture Centre can help you find the mouth guard that fits you correctly so you can breathe and speak easily during these activities. Your mouth guard should be washed in lukewarm or cold water after every use and stored in its plastic container. As long as it is properly maintained, a mouth guard can last between two and three years. Contact us to find out more.
