Mouthguards are an effective piece of equipment to help prevent injury to mouth:
- Protect teeth against impact
- Protect against jaw joint injury
- Protect against soft tissue injuries
- Help prevent neck and jaw injuries
- Could protect against concussion
Custom-fitted to your mouth
Mouthguards are made from a strong and durable material that can be moulded easily to fit precisely over your teeth and gums. An Access Dental Care dentist will take impressions to create a mouthguard to provide you with the best protection for your teeth.
The procedure for mouthguards
The procedure is very simple: your Access Dental Care dentist will take moulds of both your upper and lower teeth. These moulds will be sent to our dental laboratory where a technician will fabricate your custom-made mouthguard.
Looking after your mouthguard
In order to get the most out of your mouthguard it is important that you take good care of it:
- The plastic that mouthguards are made to change shape in high temperatures: so it is best to keep it out of direct sunlight.
- Always rinse your mouthguard in cold water after you’ve used it.
- Store in a rigid plastic container.
- On occasion, we recommend rinsing your mouthguard in mouthwash.
- If your mouthguard gets damaged, replace it.
- Bring your mouthguard along to your regular dental check so it can be assessed by one our dentists.
How does a mouthguard last?
The length of time you have your mouthguard will depend on a number of things and your sports mouthguard will need replacing over time. For instance, if a child’s adult teeth are coming through or have come through you may need a new mouthguard. Just bring it along to your check-ups and your dentist will inspect it for wear and tear.
Customs sports mouth guards in Perth
If you play sports, you need a mouthguard. Dental accidents such as tooth loss and even jaw joint problems can be painful and costly problems to fix. Talk to the team at Access Dental Care in Perth to find out how we can help you.
A mouthguard is an effective piece of equipment, which is used to prevent injuries to the teeth and mouth. We recommend that you wear a mouthguard if you play a sport, as many dental injuries can be avoided by properly protecting your mouth. Custom mouthguards can protect teeth against impact; protect against jaw joint injury; and protect against a range of soft tissue injuries. They can also be helpful in preventing neck and jaw injuries, and in some cases, can even provide some protection against concussion.
If your mouthguard is exposed to high temperatures, it could change shape. For this reason, it’s important that you keep it out of direct sunlight as much as possible. It’s also a good idea to store your mouthguard in a firm plastic container to avoid damage. Always remember to rinse your mouthguard in cold water after you have used it, and clean it with a mouthwash every now and then to keep it disinfected. We also recommend that you bring your mouthguard with you when you come in for your regular dental check-ups so that we can assess it and make sure it is not damaged at all.
When we make your custom mouthguard, we take moulds of both your upper and lower teeth. These moulds are then sent to our dental laboratory where a technician will fabricate your mouthguard with a material that can be moulded easily to fit very precisely over your teeth and gums. Because it is customised to fit your mouth, the mouthguard won’t fall out or move around and you’ll be able to breath and speak properly. Custom mouthguards are also very comfortable to wear.
