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

Children playing rugbyAccording to the Australian Dental Association, 1 in 3 traumatic dental injuries are the result of playing sport. Similarly, the Sports Medicine Association Australia organisation goes on to say that approximately 50% of children involved in athletics will experience some type of a dental injury.

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?

Investing in a professionally-made sports mouthguard from East Adelaide Dental Studio ensures a secure fit throughout your entire activity. Not only is it less likely to fall out if you’re pushed or bumped, but it’s also more comfortable to talk and hydrate with.

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.

The cushion that it offers helps to buffer any forces to your mouth, teeth and jaw. Limiting shock from your jaw to your head can in turn, potentially reduce the chance of concussion.

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.
