Custom Mouthguard UK
How to Select A Custom Mouthguard in UK That Will Keep You Protected.
Anyone who has worn a custom mouthguard UK before will know how distracting it can be if it doesn’t quite fit properly. Your mouthguard should never force you to choose between comfort and protection.
When You Are Assessing The Fit Of Your Custom Mouthguard, Ask Yourself These Questions:
Is My Custom Mouthguard Securely Fitted?
- A properly fitted mouthguard doesn’t require you to clench your teeth for it to remain secure. It also shouldn’t become loose from your tongue.
Can I Talk and Breathe Without Difficulty?
- Your mouthguard should not prevent you from being able to speak and especially should not prevent you from being able to breathe properly.
Is My Mouthguard Too Big or Too Small for My Mouth?
- Your mouthguard should end somewhere between your first and second molar and should cover all your teeth (excluding back molars). If it doesn’t this means it might be too small. On the other hand, If your mouthguard overwhelms your upper jaw, extends too far back or comes into too much contact with your soft palate then this is a sign that it is too big for you.
It’s important to note that an incorrectly fitted mouthguard can cause major distraction during a game if it needs to be constantly adjusted which can negatively affect your performance. It can also be a major safety concern as it won’t be providing optimal protection to your teeth and gums.
Ensure Your Custom Mouthguard UK is CE Compliant
To Acquire CE Certification, Mouthguards Must be Both Impact and Innocuous Tested:
Impact testing tests the amount of energy that can be transferred through the mouthguard to your teeth. Simply put, the better the mouthguard is at absorbing the shock and diffusing the impact then the more protected your teeth and jaw will be.
Innocuous testing ensures that all the materials used in the mouthguard are innocuous and won’t harm the user. A number of tests are carried out to ensure all the chemicals present won’t seep into the users body in dangerous quantities.
