Protecting your smile at play!

Sports Mouthguards Canley Heights

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 dental appliance receives the impact and cushions the blow in case of an accident

Below are some of the accidents that can be significantly minimised by mouthguards.

Custom-made Mouthguards

Custom-made mouthguards are the top-of-the-line mouthguard. They are designed for each wearer and manufactured in the dental office or a professional laboratory.

Your dentist Canley Heights makes impressions of your teeth using a mould, and a mouthguard is then created from that model.

A custom-made mouthguard is more expensive than other options, but it provides the most comfort and protection by a large margin.

Most mouthguards cover upper teeth, but in some instances, depending on other protective gear, your dental condition, and your sport, your dentist will recommend a mouthguard for lower teeth as well.

At-home Care for Mouthguards

Follow these simple steps in taking care of your mouthguard:

  • Wash your mouthguard with cold water or with a mouthrinse before and after each use.
  • Place the mouthguard in a firm, perforated container for storage and transportation. This allows air circulation and protects the mouthguard from damage.
  • Protect the mouthguard from extreme temperatures to minimise deformation.
  • Check the mouthguard for general wear. If you find holes or tears in it or if it loosens or causes pain, have it replaced immediately.
  • Bring the mouthguard to each routine dental visit to have your Canley Heights dentist examine it.

Who needs a mouthguard?
Mouthguards should be worn by anyone who plays contact sports, and any recreational activity that might be at risk of injury to the mouth would benefit from wearing a protective mouthguard.
Why do I need to use a mouthguard when playing sports?
Accidents can happen anytime. Wearing a mouthguard during activities can help decrease the risk of sports-related injuries.

Mouthguards also help you avoid damage to the teeth, nerve damage to a tooth, or even tooth loss.

How long will my mouthguard last?
Custom-made mouthguards will last between 3 to 5 years if cared for properly and depending on the frequency of usage.

Have your mouthguard checked by your Canley Heights dentist at your visit to ensure it is still in optimal condition and still fits properly.

How do I care for my mouthguard?
To ensure you mouthguard lasts for a long time, rinse with fresh, cold water after every use, store in a rigid/plastic container and keep it out of direct sunlight, as mouthguards are quite malleable when heated.
