Sports Mouthguards at East Fremantle Dental Centre
Do you participate in contact sports? Perhaps you have a child that is getting involved in athletics. Your teeth, jaw and head need a measure of protection to ensure that they stay healthy. Those who play football, cricket, rugby and more can benefit from a sports mouthguard.
At East Fremantle Dental Centre, we custom-create mouthguards for children and adults that are comfortable and easy to wear during practice or matches.
Customised Mouthguards Created On-Site
Sports mouthguards are a thicker, more flexible material than a splint that is worn at night for teeth grinding or clenching. It’s vital that all of your teeth are covered with the appropriate amount of material protecting your teeth from an impact.
You won’t have to worry about comfort with our mouthguards. Since it’s fitted perfectly around your teeth, your mouthguard won’t rub on your gums. We fabricate our mouthguards in-house, so you can be sure that you’ll get the results you want, with Dentist Dr Carmen Hobeika working closely with our laboratory technicians. You can even choose a personalised design or colour to show support for your team.
Why You Should Avoid Do-It-Yourself Kits
You can buy mouthguards from the chemist and attempt to fit them by yourself. There are some key differences, however, between one that is a professional-grade mouthguard fitted just for you and these over-the-counter kits. They don’t offer the same thickness and therefore don’t have an exact degree of protection. You may find that it falls down from your teeth and you can’t open your mouth or shift your teeth for fear that it will come out.
Most of the mouthguards from a kit are bulkier and won’t allow you to speak to your teammates while you’re playing.
