Custom-made Mouthguards in Oakleigh

If you or your children love playing sports but want to protect your teeth from trauma and injury, then a dentist-fitted mouthguard is a necessity. Here at Station Square Dental, we offer a range of sports mouthguards personally tailored to you and your individual needs.

The Advantages of a Dentist-fitted Mouthguard

This is because off-the-shelf mouthguards have not been custom-made to snugly fit over your teeth and gums. Instead, they opt for a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

A properly custom-fitted mouthguard will be protective and resilient, whilst providing you with comfort and never coming loose. They can help to significantly cushion your teeth against sudden impact, lessening your risk of broken or knocked-out teeth. Additionally, dentist-fitted mouthguards have proven that they significantly reduce the risk of concussion and jaw injuries.

How to Care for Your Mouthguard

When looked after properly, your dentist-fitted sports mouthguard should last for a long time.
We recommend you keep the mouthguard in a sturdy container to avoid damage and only ever rinse it using cold (never hot) water. Additionally, you can use soap, mouthwash or toothpaste to clean your mouthguard. You should also avoid leaving your mouthguard in the sun, as the heat may distort its shape.

Your Custom-made Mouthguard: What to Expect

When you visit one of our friendly dentists for a custom-made sports mouthguard, the process can be completed in just two appointments. The first appointment involves a dental assessment of your mouth, before impressions are taken to get the perfect fit. Your impressions are then sent to our local lab, where your personalised mouthguard is created. The second appointment will then take place once your mouthguard is back from the lab. Our dentist will ensure your mouthguard is the perfect fit, before discussing how you can care for your mouthguard, along with answering any questions you may have.

Protect Your Smile
