Why Wear a Mouthguard?
As dentists, we often see the results of heavy collisions during sports, which lead to chipped or broken teeth in people playing sports without a mouthguard.
Wearing custom made mouthguards can prevent problems that may include: internal damage of teeth, loss of teeth, soft tissue injuries and broken jaws. Injuries such as chipped and broken teeth can require expensive treatments to restore the teeth to normal function and appearance. Don’t risk your smile with over the counter boil and bite mouthguards, they often give a false sense of security. Due to their poor adaptation, these mouthguards often become loose, or dislodge at a time when you most need their protection. They also make it more difficult to talk and breathe.
Mouthguards work as shock absorbers.
By cushioning the blow, they minimize the risk of injuries.
We will custom make a mouthguard to best protect your mouth. As recommended by the Australian Dental Association, our mouthguards are constructed using a laminating technique under high temperature and pressure. This ensures the best adaptation possible to your mouth, for the most comfortable fit and protection.
Mouthguards are made over 2 short appointments that are commonly covered by health funds.
