Mouthguards

Not all Mouthguard’s are created equal. Although the self fitted store bought ones are cheap they are often hard to wear as they are bulky and ill fitting.

As a parent, the thought of seeing your child with their teeth knocked out will no doubt send a shudder down your spine (not to mention the dental bill). More so if it could have been prevented. Protecting teeth against the danger of knocks and bumps during sport is essential, for both adults and children.

Wearing a mouthguard is a simple yet invaluable way to protect teeth from the very real threat of accidental, life-altering damage.

The old style over-the-counter ‘boil and bite’ mouthguard is inadequate and provides very little benefit as well as causing gagging and inability to speak.. They are ill fitting, do not provide adequate protection and are not recommended by the ADA and Standards Australia. They often spend more time out than in the mouth.

Technological advances have come a long way and now there is a better and affordable solution.

At Harris Denture Group, we make custom moulded mouthguards for maximum impact protection. They fit perfectly over each tooth, do not move in the mouth and still allow you to breathe and speak with ease. Our skilled dental prosthetist will fit and manufacture your mouthguard in our onsite laboratory. You can trust in a quality product that is 100% manufactured in Australia.

They come in a range of colours and designs so you can match your mouthguard to your sporting team and full instructions are given on how to wear and care for the guard to get the best from it.
