Sports Mouthguards Brisbane

Mouthguards help save your teeth from damage because of sporting injuries. A dental injury or trauma to the teeth, gums, or jawbone when you are not wearing a mouthguard may significantly impact and increase the risk of tooth fracture, jawbone fracture or damage to the gums. This can result in a situation where complex dental treatments may be required like reconstructive surgery of the jaw, root canal treatment of the teeth involved or even tooth loss may happen. A well fitted custom made mouthguard can save you a trip to the dentist and can help you avoid potentially expensive and painful treatments. Mouth guards are not only recommended for people playing sports but also for non-sporting activities that may cause severe trauma on your teeth and gums, especially where physical collisions may occur. Mouthguards are a custom fitted protective guard for your teeth which fits on your teeth to protect the teeth, jawbone and gums from damage that can happen during contact sports or high impact activities.

What are the different types of mouthguards?

The term mouthguard is generally used for a protective covering that is custom fitted to your teeth. According to the purpose that they are used for, mouthguards can be of three different types:

  • Sports Mouthguards for contact sports or other physical activities that can cause injury to the teeth.
  • Mouthguards for Teeth Grinding or Clenching, these are Nightguards/ Occlusal Splints that are meant to protect your teeth from the harmful effects of teeth grinding or clenching.
  • Mouthguards for Snoring or Sleep Apnoea

Why should I get a custom fitted Mouthguard?

There are Over the counter Mouthguards or Boil and Bite Mouthguards available these days, but they are not as effective as the custom fitted Mouthguard. They are not moulded to your teeth and therefore, do not fit your teeth properly. They can provide a temporary solution until you get a properly fitted Mouthguard. It is highly recommended to get a custom fitted Mouthguard as it is purposely designed to fit your mouth and provides the best protection and comfort.

  • AFL
