Custom Mouthguards

Protect Your Smile With Our Custom Mouthguards in Currambine

If you are an athlete, mouth injuries are a common occurrence. They can have lasting effects on your oral health and even change the way you smile. Injuries to the teeth or jaw can result in tooth loss, pain and discomfort, as well as a change in appearance that affects confidence and self-esteem.

We all know that we should protect our teeth and jaws when playing contact sports (like footy or rugby). Still, most mouthguards are uncomfortable and challenging to use. Stock or boil-and-bite mouthguards are generic, one-size-fits-all and won’t provide the measure of protection you need.

A custom mouthguard can provide the safety you need. Our custom-made mouthguards are fitted to snuggly wrap around your teeth and protect them when it matters most. They are made using a mould of your teeth, so they fit exactly the shape of your mouth and provide better protection.

Benefits of Custom Mouthguards

Custom-fitted mouthguards are designed to fit your mouth perfectly and ultimately protect your teeth and gums. This way, the force of an impact is distributed as evenly as possible. In addition, they also have a little suction, so they are harder to remove, so you don’t have to think constantly about how to keep them in place with your lips and tongue.
Furthermore, mouthguards can be used to treat bruxism, which involves chronic clenching or grinding of the teeth, resulting in a wide range of problems such as worn-out teeth, broken teeth, cracked teeth, jaw pain, and severe headaches. By wearing an occlusal splint (a mouthguard for bruxism), you can prevent damage to the enamel of your teeth and reduce the tension in your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do you have questions about our dental services? We’re here to help! Check out the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions or browse through below for more information.

You should wear a custom-made mouthguard when you are playing a sport that exposes you to the risk of being hit in the face or falling. Using a sports mouthguard reduces the risk of injuries to the face, jaw, lips, teeth, and gums from indirect and direct impacts.
If you have bruxism, a night guard or occlusal splint can prevent your teeth from chipping, cracking, or wearing down from clenching or grinding at night.

The dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send them to the dental laboratory. The dental technician will make a mouthguard out of a thermoplastic polymer that fits your teeth and mouth perfectly.

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

  • Rinse your mouthguard with cool water after every use and clean it with soapy water and a brush. Let it air dry.
  • Do not expose your mouthguard to hot water or direct sunlight. It may lose its shape if it is exposed to heat.
  • Keep the mouthguard in a vented, durable plastic case when not in use.
Custom mouthguards are more expensive than stock mouthguards and boil-and-bite mouthguards. The cost of custom mouthguards ranges from $100 to $300.

It is recommended that you replace your mouthguard every two years. The mouthguard will gradually break down over time due to teeth pressure and alternate wetting and drying.

When a mouthguard shows signs of wear and tear, such as holes and cracks, or when it becomes loose, you should replace it as soon as possible. Likewise, if the mouthguard suffers significant force, its effectiveness may be affected. It is best to bring your mouthguard with you when you visit your dentist so they can examine it for signs of damage or wear and tear.
