CHILDREN'S DENTISTRY

Mouthguards

Dental injuries incurred during sports are quite common and mouthguards are an easy way to reduce this risk, cushioning the teeth, jaws and soft tissues against blows that could otherwise chip a tooth, or even knock it out completely.

It is possible to buy over-the-counter mouthguards but studies have found that at best these only offer very limited protection. They can be pretty uncomfortable to wear and are more likely to become dislodged.

Custom-Made Mouthguards

We can provide custom-made mouthguards that are specifically designed to offer maximum protection for your child during sports. Our mouthguards are made using an impression of your child’s mouth to ensure an accurate fit. They are made from a tough, tear-resistant material that is completely odourless and tasteless. The mouthguards are thickened in critical areas for increased protection, but are comfortable to wear, will remain in place and do not affect breathing.

For more information on custom mouthguards, please speak to our friendly dental team on (02) 9971 8992. You can visit us at Suite 1, 5 Dee Why Parade, Dee Why NSW 2099.
