A mouthguard, custom made and fitted by GWH Dental, can help reduce the risk of dental injuries that occur from sport, leisure and recreation activities.

Just as your teeth need protecting from plaque and tartar, it is also essential that you protect them from injury when you are playing contact sports. A mouthguard professionally moulded to your mouth’s shape is the best form of defence.

Our GWH dentists at Cleveland, Brisbane, will make your mouthguard to the highest standards and unlike store-bought mouthguards, a GWH Dental mouthguard fits better, meaning it won’t slip or fall out to help protect your teeth more effectively.

They are an affordable and easy solution for people, including children, who play recreational or professional sport.

Dental injuries through sport and activities can be painful and, unfortunately, expensive. That’s why a mouthguard worn when you train and play is highly recommended.

A mouthguard can prevent common dental injuries that occur during sport and other activities such as cuts to your mouth and gums, and chipped, cracked, broken or knocked out teeth by acting as buffer against the impact.

The GWH dentists at Cleveland, Brisbane, can explain what’s involved in making a mouthguard when you visit the clinic.

FAQS About Mouthguards
Yes, there are three main types of mouthguards: stock mouthguards (ready-to-wear), boil-and-bite mouthguards (can be customised at home), and custom-made mouthguards (professionally fitted by a dentist).
Stock mouthguards and boil-and-bite mouthguards are available over-the-counter. However, for the best fit and protection, it is recommended to get a custom-made mouthguard from a dentist. A dentist will ensure the mouthguard is tailored to your unique dental structure and needs.
Custom-made mouthguards offer a superior fit and protection compared to over-the-counter options. They are designed to precisely fit an individual’s mouth, offering maximum comfort and stability.
While mouthguards primarily protect teeth and jaws, they may also provide a degree of protection against concussions by absorbing and dissipating some impact forces.
The durability of a mouthguard depends on its type and frequency of use. Stock mouthguards may need replacement more often than custom-made ones. It is essential to inspect mouthguards regularly and replace them if they show signs of wear or damage. Mouthguards for growing children and teens may only last a season.
Rinse the mouthguard with water after each use and clean it with mild soap or mouthwash. Avoid exposing it to high temperatures, as this may cause distortion. Store the mouthguard in a clean, dry case when not in use.
Yes, there are mouthguards specifically designed for individuals with braces or other dental work. Your dentist can provide appropriate recommendations based on your specific needs.
