Custom Fitted Mouthguards

For those playing contact sport it’s vital that you protect your teeth and jaw from injury.

I think that the cheapest and most effective way to do so is to get professionally fitted with a custom made mouthguard. This will greatly reduce the chances of tooth damage or painful laceration of the lips and mouth. Mouthguards also assist in absorbing the impact which may cause a broken jaw or even concussion.

Our mouthguards are comfortable, easy to wear and offer superior teeth protection, even for children’s teeth. Children are particularly vulnerable to sporting injury and parents should insist on the best possible protection.

Mouth guards are made from heavy duty, flexible, hard-wearing vinyl or laminates. Various mouthguard colours are available and can be custom made to suit your teeth.

According to the Australian Dental Association (ADA), about one-third of traumatic injuries to teeth are sports-related. Sports Medicine Association Australia suggests that 50% of children experience some form of dental injury. To remain effective and comfortable the rule of thumb is renew your mouthguard each year.  The small cost of a mouthguard may save many thousands of dollars in the event of trauma.

Most health funds provide generous rebates for mouthguards for obvious reasons.
