Custom Mouthguards

A custom mouthguard is thick, flexible plastic that is custom fit to your teeth, designed to protect your teeth from contact or injury during sporting events or activities. Each custom mouthguard is cast from a plaster model of your teeth and professionally fitted by our amazing orthodontists to ensure maximum comfort.

Importance Of Mouthguards

According to the Australian Dental Association, it is highly recommended that when engaging in sporting activities, physical training or games, that you should wear a custom mouthguard to protect your teeth, lips and nerves from any potential contact. In some sports custom mouthguards are a compulsory accessory at most sporting teams, schools and clubs. The custom-made mouthguard will assist in protecting the braces and soft tissue in case of a physical knock. The inhouse Dental Laboratory at Wilkinson Orthodontic will ensure there is room within the custom-made mouthguard for teeth movement during orthodontic treatment.

Can I wear a mouthguard during orthodontic treatment?

Wilkinson Orthodontics recommends wearing a mouthguards during orthodontic treatment is playing any type of contact sports. Soft tissue in the mouth such as lips and cheeks are more vulnerable to abrasion when physical contact is experienced on the mouth. Mouthguards during orthodontic treatment protect your teeth and the surround soft mouth tissue areas.

How do I care for my mouthguard?

Like anything that you place in your mouth, you need to ensure that it is clean and hygienic. We recommend keeping your custom mouthguard in a mouthguard case that will be provided to you, and soaking it in an antibacterial mouthwash before and after use. If worn for long periods of time, we strongly recommend you brush your mouthguard with a toothbrush and toothpaste to ensure it’s cleanliness and the longevity of it’s plastic. As a hint do not clean your mouthguard in hot or warm water as you may alter the shape.
