Custom Mouthguards

Custom Mouthguards in Iluka Can Save and Protect Your Smile

Mouth injuries are relatively prevalent among athletes. They can have long-term impacts on your oral health and even affect your smile. Teeth or jaw injuries can cause tooth loss, pain and discomfort, and a change in appearance that compromises confidence and self-esteem.
When participating in contact sports (like footy or rugby), we are all aware that we should protect our teeth and jaws. Even yet, most mouthguards are uncomfortable to wear and difficult to put on. Stock or boil-and-bite mouthguards are generic, one-size-fits-all products that will not offer you the necessary level of protection.

You can get the necessary protection from a custom mouthguard. Our custom-made mouthguards are designed to wrap securely around your teeth and protect them when it matters. They are created from a mould of your teeth, which fits perfectly and gives adequate protection.

The Amazing Benefits of Custom Mouthguards

Custom-fitted mouthguards are made to fit your mouth correctly and protect your teeth and gums. In this manner, the force of an impact is distributed as evenly as feasible. Furthermore, they have a little suction, making them more challenging to remove, so you don’t have to consistently think about how to hold them in place with your lips and tongue.
Moreover, mouthguards can be used to treat bruxism, which is defined by persistent clenching or grinding of the teeth, leading to various problems such as worn-out teeth, broken teeth, cracked teeth, jaw pain, and severe migraines. Wearing an occlusal splint (a bruxism mouthguard) can help protect your teeth’s enamel and alleviate pressure in your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

When playing a sport that puts you at risk of being hit in the face or falling, you should wear a custom-made mouthguard. Using a sports mouthguard minimizes the risk of injuries to the face, jaw, lips, teeth, and gums from both indirect and direct hits. If you suffer from bruxism, a nightguard or occlusal splint can keep your teeth from chipping, cracking, or wearing down from clenching or grinding at night.
The dentist will make an impression of your teeth and send them to a dental laboratory for analysis. The dental technician will create a mouthguard out of a thermoplastic polymer custom-fit to your teeth and mouth.

By properly caring for your mouthguard, you can enhance its life and prevent bacteria from destroying it.

  1. After every use, rinse your mouthguard with cool water and clean it with soapy water and a brush. Allow it to air dry.
  2. Avoid exposing your mouthguard to hot water or direct sunlight. If exposed to heat, it may lose its shape.
  3. When not in use, store the mouthguard in a ventilated, durable plastic case.
Custom mouthguards are more costly than stock mouthguards and boil-and-bite mouthguards. Custom mouthguards range in price from \$100 to \$300.

It is suggested that your mouthguard be replaced every two years. Due to dental pressure and alternate wetting and drying, the mouthguard will gradually degrade over time.

When a mouthguard begins to exhibit indications of wear and tear, such as holes or cracks, or when it becomes loose, it should be replaced as soon as possible. Similarly, if the mouthguard is subjected to significant force, its effectiveness may be compromised. It is essential to bring your mouthguard with you to your dentist appointment to examine it for signs of breakage or wear and tear. They may check it for signs of breakage or wear and tear.
