    Custom-fitted Mouthguards in Eltham

    MouthGuards

    A properly fitted mouthguard should be worn during any contact sport or activity where there is a risk of an injury to the face e.g. Football, Hockey, Volleyball, Soccer etc.  Without a mouthguard, sports injuries and accidents can result in damage and injury to the gum, lips or teeth including tooth fracture or knocked out teeth and jaw fractures.

    Our Custom Fitted Mouthguards
    We pride ourselves on the quality of our Custom Fitted, Pressure Laminated Mouthguards which come in a range of type and colours, including AFL colours, to suit everyone.

    Benefits of a custom fitted MouthGuard

    Custom-fitted Mouthguards  are constructed and fitted to the shape of your mouth by a dental professional. A Custom Fitted Mouthguard should fit snugly and be comfortable, allow normal breathing and swallowing and allow the wearer to speak.  They need to be thick enough (4mm) to provide protection against impact and have been proven to reduce the number and severity of mouth injuries in sport and during training.

    Whilst over the counter  Boil-and-bite  and  Ready-Made   Mouthguards  are cheaper, they are uncomfortable, difficult to keep in the mouth and do not provide sufficient protection
