CUSTOM MOUTH & NIGHT GUARDS
Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury. Every year thousands of people of all ages, including young children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimised by wearing a protective custom-fitted mouth guard.
Damaged or dislodged teeth, broken jaws and cut lips can be sustained when participating in contact sports. A mouth guard helps absorb and spread the impact of a blow to the face that might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw.
Dental injuries can result in time off school or work to recover, can be painful and disfiguring, and may involve lengthy and expensive dental treatment.
The cost of, and injury to your teeth or jaw, far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouth guard.
Unlike 'off the shelf' mouth guards, custom mouth guards won't slip or fall out of your mouth and don't require any effort to keep in, leaving you to concentrate on your game.
Custom-fitted mouth guard are made by our dentists, who take an impression and create a plaster model of your teeth. Custom fitting allows the dentist to accurately assess your month and provide the best fitting mouth guard that is most appropriate for your sport.
Custom-fitted mouth guards provide a better fit than other varieties, as they are made to suit your individual needs.
A custom-fitted mouth guard is:
- Allows you to speak clearly
- Provides maximum resistance against being dislodged
- Won’t restrict breathing
Other mouth guard tips:
- The Australian Dental Association strongly recommends investing in a custom-fitted mouth guard from your dentist
- Have your mouth guard checked by your dentist every 12 months for optimal fit and protection
- Keep your mouth guard clean and store it in a rigid container, away from heat to ensure it maintains its shape
- Rinse in cold water after use
- Keep out of direct sunlight – mouth guards will distort in high temperatures
- Occasionally rinse your mouth guard in a mouthwash
- Replace your mouth guard if it gets damaged
Over 30% of the population damage their teeth at night from grinding. Night-guards will prevent further damage to teeth and help to restore your bite. These small comfortable appliances are worn in the mouth similar to an Orthodontic retainer or sports mouthguard.
Bruxism is the technical term for clenching and/or grinding of teeth. People who suffer from Bruxism unintentionally bite down too hard at inappropriate times, such as while they are sleeping. Grinding wears down and may fracture teeth, and may lead to gum and jaw problems.
Many people are unaware that they have Bruxism. Bruxism may be caused by stress, an unconscious attempt to smooth out a poor bite, sleep disorders or teeth that are missing or crooked.
If you wake up with any of the following symptoms you may be suffering from Bruxism:
- dull headaches
- facial pain
- tooth ache
- a sore jaw
- painful or loose teeth
