Sports Mouth Guards
A custom-fitted mouthguard is vital for anyone playing contact sports. Without a mouthguard, a direct impact can cause the upper front teeth to instantly fracture or be knocked out (avulsed). In extreme cases, the transmitted forces can be so high that they can cause a fracture of either of the jaws, or a concussion.
Custom-made mouthguards act like a shock absorber by spreading the force over a larger area, resulting in generally milder injuries than fracture and tooth loss.
All of our sports mouthguards are constructed in a local Brisbane dental laboratory rather than being sent to an overseas laboratory. This allows us to work in close collaboration with dental technicians to ensure the best design and fit for each individual patient.
