How good is your mouthguard?

While it is generally accepted that a mouthguard is essential for many sports, little information is available about what type of mouthguard is needed.

Here at Balmoral Dental Centre, we can provide a custom made Mouthguard to help protect from dental injuries.  While over the counter products are available, these are often deficient due to the ‘one size fits all’ philosophy used.  Our teeth are as individual as our finger prints so it stands to reason that mouthguards should not all be the same.  Our custom made mouthguards meet all recommendations ensuring the best available protection.

A recent incident with a hockey player in Tasmania showed the deficiencies of cheap over the counter devices. See article here.

A custom made mouthguard can potentially save thousands in dental reconstruction, not to mention the pain and time needed.  Health funds will usually give a rebate and if you are a HCF fund member, you may be entitled to up to two mouthguards a year with no out of pocket expenses through their More For Teeth program.

The Australian Dental Association confirm the dangers of over the counter products following hockey incident.  The warning is available by following this link.

So give us a call and make an appointment for a custom mouthguard for you or your sporting children today!
