1. The Australian Dental Association strongly recommends investing in a custom-fitted mouthguard from your dentist.
2. Have your mouthguard checked at your regular dental check-up to make sure it fits correctly and offers maximum protection.
3. Keep your mouthguard clean and store it in a rigid container, away from heat to ensure it maintains its shape.

A custom-fitted mouthguard is an essential part of sports equipment. Just as you wouldn't play soccer without shin pads or cricket without a cricket box you should never play contact sport without protecting your teeth.
A mouthguard protects your teeth with a cushioning effect spreading the impact of a hit to the face. A mouthguard can therefore also reduce impact injuries to other parts of your head and jaw.
These kinds of injuries can have lasting negative affects on your dental health and protecting against them is so easy. The Dentist will take a mould of your teeth and then fit your mouthguard at your next visit. You can even pick your colour scheme to match your team colours.
