• Mouthguards Victoria Park

    An active lifestyle is an integral part life and helps us stay healthy physically and mentally. Play it safe with a custom-fitted sports mouthguard for maximum protection against dental injuries.

    A custom-fitted sports mouthguard absorbs and spreads the impact of a collision, reducing your chances of injury. Common injuries can include chipped, cracked or knocked-out teeth, cuts inside the mouth or a broken jaw. 

    The cost of a custom-fitted sports mouthguard starts from $180 or may even be covered by private health insurance.

  • Types of Mouthguards

    There are 3 common types of sports mouthguards available on the market, however they don't offer the same level of protection:

    • Ready to wear
      The cheapest and least protective option are ready to wear mouthguards bought from retail stores. These pre-formed mouthguards are not personalised to the individual wearer, so they're more likely to feel loose, bulky and uncomfortable and may affect your breathing or performance.
    • Boil and bite
      Another over-the-counter option, these mouthguards are placed in boiling water and worn to be moulded into the shape of the mouth, however the fit is still looser than a custom-made mouthguard and when it comes to head-on collisions, they are less likely to protect you. Boil and bite mouthguards also need replacing often as they tend to warp out of shape quickly.
    • Custom-fitted
      Custom-made mouthguards are designed by taking impressions of your teeth to precisely fit the contours of your mouth. They provide maximum protection and comfort and allow for normal breathing and speaking. A custom-fitted sports mouthguard can last for several seasons before it needs replacing, depending on how often it's used, how it’s cared for and whether your bite has changed.

  • Advantages of wearing a Custom Sports Mouthguard

    There are many advantages to investing in a custom-fitted sports mouthguard. Dentists will always recommend a custom mouthguard because the tailored fit is designed to provide maximum protection to teeth and gums. A custom mouthguard won’t shift around in the mouth like other mouthguards can, and allows you to breathe and speak easier.

    • Fits the exact contours of the mouth
    • Won't shift around
    • Easier to breath and speak

    A 2019 study from Adelaide University has confirmed a link between protruding teeth and a higher risk of dental injury in children. For patients with protruding teeth or those undergoing orthodontic treatment, a custom mouthguard is especially important to protect teeth and gums.

    A custom-fitted sports mouthguard is a small investment to ensure the best protection for your mouth.

  • HITIQ Smart Mouthguards - Exclusive to Bupa Dental Care Dentists

    We've partnered with HITIQ to access their latest technology in custom-fit mouthguards. It combines head impact surveillance with a custom-fit mouthguard for better protection on the sports field.

    Used by a growing number of professional sporting teams, it's designed to provide data to help protect players 12 years and over from the effects of head impacts during contact sports.

    Sensors within the HITIQ mouthguard detect head impacts, which are collated and assessed. After game play, alerts are sent to your HITIQ app, alerting you to head impacts detected by the mouthguard.

  • Mouthguards for Other Conditions

    Your dentist may recommend a custom mouthguard to treat other conditions:

    Bruxing or teeth grinding and jaw clenching is commonly caused by stress and often occurs during sleep. It can wear down teeth and put pressure on jaws, causing jaw joint issues over time. A custom night guard can help prevent damage and alleviate muscle spasms.

    Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that is thought to affect 1 in 10 Australians. Wearing a mandibular advancement device (MAD) to sleep pushes your jaw forward, opening up your airway to avoid obstruction and vibration (snoring).

    TMJ disorder is a condition affecting the temporomandibular joints and muscles attached to your jaws. Symptoms such as jaw pain and jaw stiffness may be alleviated using a custom mouthguard to help prevent clenching and ease jaw muscle tension.

A custom-fitted sports mouthguard can last longer when it’s well cared for. To prevent the mouthguard from warping and going out of shape, keep your mouthguard out of direct sunlight and away from heat. Wash it in cold or warm water after use and keep it on its mould to retain its shape.

A custom-fitted sports mouthguard provides the best possible protection for your teeth, gums and jaw while playing contact sports. While more expensive than over-the-counter types, the cost of treating a dental injury far outweighs the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard.
