Prevent Future Dental Treatments with Durable Mouthguards
Mouthguards are dental appliances that are worn when playing contact sports and leisure activities to protect the teeth and the soft tissues in the mouth.
This protective appliance receives the impact and cushions the blow in case of an accident.
Here are some of the accidents that can be significantly minimised by mouthguards.
- Knocked-out or avulsed tooth
- Fractured/cracked tooth
- Broken or chipped tooth
- Loose tooth
- Soft tissue injuries
Custom-made mouthguards are designed for each wearer and manufactured in the dental office or a professional laboratory.
Your Albury dentist makes impressions of your teeth using a mould, and a mouthguard is then created from that model.
A custom-made mouthguard provides the most comfort and protection by a large margin.
Most mouthguards cover the upper teeth, but in some instances, depending on other protective gears, your dental condition, and your sport, your Albury dentist will recommend a mouthguard for lower teeth as well.
Keep Your Mouth Healthy with Regular Dental Check-ups
Wear a mouthguard at play to keep the injuries away. Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury.
Every year thousands of people, including children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimised by wearing a protective, custom-fitted mouthguard.
- A mouthguard is essential in all contact sports. It will help reduce any impact to the face, minimise the risk of breaking teeth and also reduce the chance of cuts to the lips.
- Custom-made mouthguards offer superior protection to stock mouthguards bought at a sporting goods store.
- A custom-made mouthguard will fit and feel much more comfortable than a stock one. You will feel the difference instantly and be able to breathe and talk with much ease.
- Our mouthguards are made using the latest materials and technology.
- You will have a choice of colours.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why custom-made mouthguards?
These form-fitting guards allow for maximum performance and communication with a precise fit.
They will stay in place during play and allow the athlete to breathe and talk with greater ease. Because the guard is made from several layers of pressure laminated material, the teeth are maximally protected.
What are the advantages of mouthguards?
Mouthguards cushion the force of a blow to the jaw. The mouthguard helps to spread the energy over the area and keep it from focusing on one or just a few teeth.
With a blow to the lower jaw, the mouthguard helps to keep the teeth apart, preventing the lower jaw from crushing up against the skull.
This will help to reduce or minimise the chance of concussion. Mouthguards serve as shock absorbers to the jaw and brain.
