Protecting your smile at play!
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
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.
