Do you play contact sports? If so, it’s important to protect your teeth with a custom mouth guard. At Digital Denture Centre, we can design and manufacture a mouth guard specifically for you. Our custom design process ensures a perfect fit, while our range of colours and styles means you can find a mouth guard that matches your team’s colours or expresses your personality.
Custom mouth guards are available for both children and adults. To find out more, call us today on 03 5454 3997 and schedule a consultation at our clinic in Bendigo.
Whether you’re dodging tackles on the rugby field or defending your net on the hockey pitch, our custom mouth guards can help protect your teeth from impact. Made from premium materials and designed to last, our mouth guards are comfortable to wear and won’t impede your breathing or speech. Professional athletes and weekend warriors alike can benefit from our custom mouth guards.
Some of the sports our custom mouth guards are suitable for include:
Our two-piece mouth guards are suitable for most sports, while our premium four-piece mouth guards offer additional protection for more high-impact sports. If you’re unsure which type of mouth guard is right for you, our team can help you choose the best option during your consultation.
Our custom mouth guards are dual laminate, meaning they’re made from two layers of different materials. The inner layer consists of a 2mm clear laminated blank, while the outer layer is made from a 4mm coloured blank pressure formed to the inner layer. This combination of materials makes our mouth guards tough, durable and comfortable to wear.
We’ve selected our materials to strike the perfect balance between protection and comfort. The pressure-formed outer layer ensures a snug fit, while the soft inner layer helps ensure your mouth guard is comfortable to wear for extended periods. These materials do not warp when subjected to heat; your mouth guard will retain its shape and fit even after repeated use.
Custom mouth guards are made from high-quality materials that fit your teeth precisely. This offers better protection, comfort, and durability than over-the-counter mouth guards. Over-the-counter mouthguards, otherwise known as ‘Boil and Bite’ guards, are made from a softer material that you must boil in water to fit. While they may seem like a cheaper option, they can often lose their shape quickly and need to be replaced more frequently.
You should clean your custom mouth guard with cool, soapy water and a toothbrush after every use. Never put your mouth guard in the dishwasher or leave it in direct sunlight, as this can damage it.
With proper care, custom mouth guards can last several years. If you find that your mouth guard is starting to wear down or become uncomfortable, you should reach out to your dentist to see if you need a new one.
You may need more than one custom mouth guard if you play multiple sports, depending on the type of sport and the level of protection you need. For example, if you play both football and basketball, you may need a separate mouth guard for each sport. However, if you only play recreational sports, you may be able to get away with just one mouth guard.
