Protect to prevent!
The best way to treat a dental trauma is to prevent it! Avoiding trauma can be a little out of our control but there are ways that we can reduce the damage to our teeth and mouth if we encounter an unexpected knock to the head or face.
At Maven Dental we recommend custom-made mouthguards for anyone playing contact sports. This includes sports such as all football codes, soccer, boxing, and hockey to name a few.
Sports are one of the most common causes of dental injury, and the cost of getting a tooth knocked out is far greater than the cost of getting a mouthguard. A well-fitting mouthguard provides protection to teeth and jaw joints and lessens the impact on contact.
