Custom Mouthguards at Wellness Dental Bronte

Children playing rugbyContact sports like rugby, football, boxing and martial arts can put adults and children at an increased chance of dental injuries and concussions.

With a sports mouthguard, you can safely protect your teeth and gums from traumatic injuries, lowering the chances of:

  • Lacerations to the lips, tongue and cheeks
  • Broken or chipped enamel
  • Knocked out teeth
  • Concussions
  • Jaw fractures
  • Facial fractures

How They Work

Custom sports guards are a thin appliance that snuggly hug the teeth. They’re made from a mould or scan of the teeth, which is then used by our Australian lab to fabricate the custom mouthpiece. Compared to stock guards sold over-the-counter in stores, a professional mouthpiece offers advantages like:

  • Protection against secondary trauma
  • Improved comfort
  • Easier to talk and hydrate with
  • Less likely to fall out
  • Better fit
  • Crafted from an exact mould of your teeth

Depending on who needs the mouthguard (an adult or a child) we will have it designed to fit the specific individual. Adults can usually wear their sports appliance for several seasons in a row. Children, on the other hand, can grow a significant amount between sports seasons. As such, they frequently need to have their mouthguards updated every year or so.

At Wellness Dental Bronte, our sports mouthguards come in a range of colours, so that you can choose one that matches your favourite team or jersey. Each is locally made by one of our Australian labs, so nothing is sent abroad. The customised process allows for the highest quality of appliance and better protection for your smile. We can even work with local clubs and school athletes to arrange matching mouthguards for their teams.

When you choose protective equipment like pads and helmets, you make your choice based on how well it’s going to safeguard you or your child from an injury. With sports mouthguards, it’s no different. Over-the-counter kits are typically a “boil and bite” design, that’s moderately shaped to most people’s mouths. However, their looser fit means they can easily fall out when you need them the most.

Investing in a custom mouthguard is a smart choice when it comes to protecting your smile. Since so many sports injuries are the result of trauma to the face, wearing a professionally fitted appliance can be the difference you need to avoid a dental emergency.

Just like an orthodontic tray, retainer or removable denture, you need to keep your sports guard clean. Between uses, store it in a dry container and keep it out of the heat. Avoid using hot water to clean it, as it could cause the material to warp. Instead, brush it with a nonabrasive toothpaste under lukewarm tap water, then dry it thoroughly. Be sure to clean it after every use, so that bacterial accumulation doesn’t occur.
