Help Promote Mouthguard Awareness

27 January 2022 

Summer is still going strong but ADA NSW’s thoughts are turning towards how best to promote mouthguard awareness for winter sports season participants.
Sports-related injuries account for almost 40% of dental injuries, yet only 36% of Australians wear a mouthguard when playing contact sport and even fewer wear a mouthguard during training. 
ADA NSW has heavily promoted the importance of mouthguard awareness in the past and the importance of participants obtaining a custom-fitted mouthguard from their dentist to help best avoid serious dental and oral injuries.  ADA NSW is looking to do so again in 2022.
The ADA’s federal body has helpful information and resources for patients on the importance of wearing mouthguards available here.
If you’re a practice – particularly in regional NSW - arranging a mouthguard fitting for winter sports participants over the coming weeks, please let us know via communications@adansw.com.au and we may be able to arrange media coverage or further publicity. If you also have other ideas for promoting this initiative – for example, community initiatives or social media activities -  we would love to hear about them and share the word w fellow members! 
Our members do great work promoting mouthguard awareness and we’d love to promote this hugely important oral health initiative!
More information on this and other ADA NSW advocacy activities is also available here.
