Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a mouthguard cost?
A custom mouthguard costs more than an over-the-counter mouthguard, but by offering more protection it lowers the risk of needing expensive corrective treatments. The average cost of a custom-fitted sports mouthguard is approximately $200. Some health funds that include dental services cover the cost of mouthguards with no out of pocket expenses. Check with your insurance provider to find out if you’re covered. Kelmscott Dental is a Bupa Platinum Members First provider and a preferred provider for HBF and HCF. We can also offer flexible payment options if you need help breaking down your mouthguard cost to make it easier to manage.
Why is a custom mouthguard superior to other mouthguards?
If you’re used to wearing a mouthguard bought from a store, you might associate mouthguards with feeling uncomfortable or even affecting your speech or breathing. While any mouthguard is better than no protection at all, a mouthguard that’s been custom made to fit over your teeth precisely offers more reliable protection than a generic or boil-and-bite mouthguard. It should also be less bulky, feel more comfortable and have less impact on your speech, breathing and athletic performance. A custom mouthguard is also recommended during orthodontic treatment or if you have protruding teeth.
