Custom-fitted mouthguard in Essendon

A custom-fitted mouthguard can help you avoid dental injuries, such as fractures or loss of teeth which are common occurrences. A large proportion of these injuries occur as a result of playing sports. Visiting us to get a personalised mouthguard from our Essendon dental practice makes good sense to protect your teeth.

Contrary to popular belief, players of contact sports such as football experience fewer dental injuries because it is more likely players will wear a professional custom-fitted mouthguard.

Rehabilitating a knocked out tooth can be 20 times more expensive than having a mouthguard properly fitted. We recommend that any person playing sport contact their FirstBite dentist and arrange an appointment to discuss your mouthguard needs, before it’s too late.

Custom mouthguard vs store-bought mouthguards

As always, prevention is far better than cure. A properly fitted mouthguard made by your FirstBite dentist is the best form of protection. These mouthguards fit firmly, which facilitates breathing and talking. There is also less chance of the mouthguard falling out at the crucial time as it is made to fit the shape of your mouth.

Mouthguards fitted professionally by a dentist are 82% more effective in preventing dental injuries, compared to chemist or supermarket bought mouthguards, which only prevent up to 40% of injuries.
