Custom mouthguards are made to fit the teeth and gums closely and therefore offer greater comfort and protection than pre-fabricated mouthguards. They not only help minimise dental injury but can also reduce the severity of concussion whilst playing contact sports. The Australian Dental Association (ADA) is again calling on parents, schools and sporting clubs to make the wearing of custom-fitted mouthguards compulsory for anyone participating in sports where contact to the head and face may occur. In Victoria alone, at least 2,000 dental injuries were treated in emergency departments between 2009 and 2011, with people under 25 at most risk . The US National Youth Sports Foundation for the Prevention of Athletic Injury Inc., calculates that a tooth knocked out during sport has the potential for lifetime costs of up to $15,000 per tooth. "Compare that to the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard, and the protection against injury is a worthy investment.
