Sports Dentistry – Custom Mouthguards

Even though you can buy mouthguards in most sport shops, department stores and chemists, they typically don’t fit very well and can be uncomfortable for the wearer. If you are an avid sports player and want the best protection for your teeth or the teeth of your children.

Here at Shine Dental Group we offer a range of custom mouthguards, personally tailored to you and your individual needs.

Do You Need a Mouthguard?

When you are participating in any form of sport there is always an associated risk of injury, a bump to the head, fall or even a broken bone. And whilst injuries are never a welcome result, there are many ways to protect yourself against them.

Wearing a custom mouthguard is just as important as a helmet or an ankle brace. After all, if you knock a tooth out, especially a permanent tooth, it will never grow back. A high-quality custom mouthguard designed to fit your mouth can help to prevent both painful and irreversible damage to your teeth as well as protecting your jaw.

Advantages of Wearing a Custom Mouthguard

To ensure the best possible fit and comfort, you will need to speak with your local Dentist. A store bought mouthguard has not be designed for you and if you wear it on a regular basis, it can become uncomfortable and not provide the protection you need.

Custom mouthguards are fitted to an exact mould of your teeth. This means that every lump and bump of your teeth and gums are accounted for, ensuring the guard fits perfectly into your mouth.

Shine Dental Group offer custom mouthguards made from the highest quality materials making them easier to clean and ensuring longevity.

Purchasing a cheaper mouthguard off the shelf can initially be seen as saving you money, the protection and comfort that comes along with it cannot be compared to a custom one.

Characteristics of a Custom Mouthguard

  • Offers the highest level of protection
  • Fits your mouth perfectly
  • Comfortable to wear

When to Wear a Mouthguard

A mouthguard should be worn during all sports training sessions and matches. It’s best to get in the habit of wearing your mouthguard any time there is a risk of impact to your face, regardless of whether or not your chosen sport is considered a contact sport or not.

Caring for Your Custom Mouthguard

After wearing your mouthguard, we recommend rinsing it in warm soapy water and allowing it to air-dry. We also suggest using a mouthwash every so often to disinfect it.

When not in use, your custom mouthguard should be kept in a cool, dry place inside it’s custom container. Leaving your mouthguard in the car, especially during warmer month can alter the shape of the mouthguard.
