Mouthguards

Does My Child Need a Mouthguard?

Every year thousands of children in Australia suffer dental injuries while playing sports. So if your child is active it is a great idea to talk to us about custom-made mouthguards. Wearing a mouthguard while playing contact and some non-contact sports will reduce or hopefully eliminate their risk of injury.

Why Choose a Custom-Made Mouthguard?

You have probably seen over-the-counter mouthguard available relatively cheaply, but these offer minimal protection and can be so uncomfortable that they are unlikely to be worn regularly. In comparison, a custom-mouthguard is made to exactly fit your child’s mouth and will be comfortable to wear while offering maximum protection.

How Long Will It Last?

We ask that you your child bring their mouthguard with them to each check-up so we can see if it is still fitting correctly. Children’s teeth and jaws are still growing and changing shape so it may renewing at regular intervals.

Are your kids eligible to receive up to $1000 of free dental treatment under the Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS)? We bulk bill for CDBS so there are no out of pocket expenses.
