Custom Fitted Mouthguard
Mouth guards are a custom fitted covering to protect your teeth from injury through teeth grinding and from sports. A properly fitted mouth guard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of gear for the athlete or thrill seeker to protect their teeth and smile. Made specifically for you by your dentist, our mouth guards far surpass those you can buy at the local chemist and are made from material that is more durable. Sport, leisure and recreational activities are the most common cause of dental injuries that can often be very painful and require extensive treatment. Mouthguards provide a valuable layer of protection for your teeth during physical activities that carry a risk of dental injury.
Mouth-guards help protect teeth even in non-contact sports, such as gymnastics. Many experts recommend that a mouth guard be worn for any recreational activity that poses a risk of injury to the mouth. Mouth guards provide protection against facial sporting injuries and play an important role as they contribute significantly to safety in sports.

We can also create mouth guards to protect your teeth from damage caused by grinding. Whether you suffer from misaligned jaws, teeth that do not touch in the right place or simply grind when under heavy stress we can make a mouth guard that is minimally invasive to wear at night.
Whilst a mouth guard will not cure your grinding, it can protect your teeth for the time being whilst the underlying cause of grinding is investigated. We can help you determine possible causes and discuss treatment options to support you and protect your smile.
A custom mouth guard will keep your smile perfect on, and off, the sporting field. To find out more on how our dental clinic in Maroubra can help you get the best fit, speak to us today.
