Western Suburbs Article - 3rd April 2018 / Dr Luke Rodman discussing Mouthguards


Date Published: 13/04/2018

Dr Luke Rodman discusses "Mouthguards" as published in the Western Suburbs newspaper on 3rd April 2018.
 
With Optus Stadium open, everyone's favourite footy players are back in action and local winter sports are staring, making now a good time to invest in a mouthguard from Cottesloe Dental.
 
"We see numerous patients each year with dental injuries that may have been prevented or minimised by wearing a custom-made mouthguard," Dr Luke Rodman said.
 
"Obviously sports such as football, mixed martial arts and rugby carry the risk of collision, but there are many other sports such as soccer, hockey, basketball and netball where accidental impact to the face may occur."
 
A mouthguard helps to absorb and disperse the energy of a blow to the face, which may result in chipped or broken teeth, internal tooth damage or tooth loss.
 
"Sports science research strongly indicates the benefits of wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard and although they are not fail-safe, prevention is better than cure and a mouthguard is always a good decision in maintaining your healthy smile," Dr Rodman said.
