Mouthguards

At Kelmscott Dental we know that the pursuit of sports and an active lifestyle is an important part of many of our patients and their families’ lifestyles. However, we also understand the dental injuries that can be caused as a result of sporting accidents. Many of these injuries are a result of insufficient or ill-fitting mouth protection and often require extensive, costly treatment.

Why Go To Your Dentist For A Sports Mouthguard?

Our experienced dentists, along with the ADA, recommend a custom fitted mouthguard as the most effective way to protect your teeth while participating in an active lifestyle1. Custom fitted mouthguards are specifically moulded and designed to be a precise fit in your mouth, covering and protecting all your teeth. Their thickness, bulk and size are all tailored depending on your age, tooth/jaw structure and type of sporting activity in which you partake. Furthermore, unlike store bought mouthguards, custom fitted ones maximise your communication and breathing ability.

Are They Customisable?

Available in the colours of most Australian sporting teams, a custom fitted mouth guard is a small investment to help ensure the safety of your smile.

Are There Other Reasons For Mouthguards?

Another common use for mouthguards is for those who suffer from bruxism, also known as teeth grinding. Some people do this during the day due to stress or anxiety, and others may do it at night without even realising it. Signs that you may be grinding your teeth include:

  • Tension headaches
  • Clicking jaw
  • Pain in facial muscles
  • Stiffness in the shoulders

How To Combat Bruxism

There are many different approaches to dealing with bruxism, and our dentists will be able to discuss the right plan for you. Mouthguards are often one of the first treatments to try, as they protect your teeth and discourage you from grinding or clenching. Our dentists will also look at the alignment of your teeth and other possible causes for your grinding, which is why it’s essential to see our professionals if you are suffering from bruxism.

Contact Kelmscott Dental to make your appointment and have your sports or medical mouthguard fitted.
