Custom Made Mouthguards at Kedron Dental Centre
What is a custom-made mouthguard?
Custom-made mouthguards accurately conform to your mouth and are of durable construction. Poorly fitting mouthguards provide little protection and tend not to be worn by children due to their discomfort.
Who should wear a mouthguard?
Custom made Mouthguards can be made for children, adolescents and adults.
Physically active people and those playing contact sports that are at risk of a knock to the face should have a custom made mouthguard fitted by a dentist. This includes sports like:
- Water polo
What are the advantages of a custom-made mouthguard?
Wearing a custom made mouthguard can protect against chipped or broken teeth, root and bone damage and tooth loss.
A mouthguard can help cushion a strong blow to the face that otherwise might result in an injury to the mouth. As well as preventing you from accidentally biting your lips, tongue or cheeks.
Can I wear a mouthguard if I have braces?
A mouthguard is recommended for people who wear braces as it can help prevent damage to the brackets from a blow to the face and provides a barrier between the braces and cheek or lips.
Talk to your dentist or orthodontist about selecting a mouthguard that is best for you.
How do you look after your mouthguard?
- Rinse the mouthguard with water before putting into mouth.
- Clean mouthguard after use by washing with mild soap and cold water.
- Store dry mouthguard in a rigid box and away from heat.
