Custom Mouthguards at East Adelaide Dental Studio
If you or your child are active in sport, then injuries like concussions or broken teeth are a serious risk. Fortunately, a custom-made mouthguard offers the best protection when it comes to protective mouthpieces.
Even if your sport team doesn’t require a mouthguard as part of your protective equipment, investing in the appliance can significantly lower your chances of a dental emergency.
Dental Injury Risks
Wearing a sports guard during practice or competitions can lower your risk of oral injures like:
- Knocked out teeth
- Chipped enamel
- Lip, cheek and tongue lacerations
- Jaw fractures
Why a Custom Guard?
Custom sports guards are made differently than stock mouthpieces that you can buy over the counter. Designed from a model of your own mouth, the mouthpiece hugs every curve of your smile. It won’t feel loose or fall out of place easily, so that you can focus on what’s in front of you: the game. As such, they offer better protection when it comes to tooth, mouth and jaw damage.
Choose a Custom Design
When you’re fitted for a custom mouthguard, we can select your favourite colour to match your team jersey or school mascot. The appliance will be ready to wear within a week.
Adults can keep wearing their mouthpiece each season but growing children will need to have their appliance updated until their mouths are fully formed.
