Many contact and non-contact sports increase the risk of dental injuries and a blow to the mouth could result in years of complex restorative care. Our custom-made mouthguards are a lower cost solution for reducing this risk, providing optimal protection for your child’s teeth while they enjoy playing sports.
Why Choose a Custom-Made Mouthguard?
Family Dental Care mouthguards are made from a high-quality, tough, durable thermoplastic material that is odour-free and neutral tasting and which are available in different colours. Our dentist will ensure the mouthguard is correctly fabricated to be comfortable to wear and it will not hinder breathing. We can design your child’s mouthguard ensuring it is thicker in critical areas, providing maximum protection that simply isn’t available when using an over-the-counter mouthguard. Our dentist will regularly assess the fit of their mouthguard at every check-up and it will need adjusting or replacing periodically as your child’s teeth and jaws develop.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Contact us for more information. Rebates may vary depending on your individual health fund.
