Health Funds



Every year there are thousands of dental injuries as a result of playing sports without a custom-made mouthguard. Quite often these injuries could have been significantly reduced or completely eliminated, saving you time and money in the dental chair. The cost of restoring teeth can mount up over a lifetime and a mouthguard can be an economical way to avoid the pain and distress of dental injuries
