Custom-Fitted Mouthguards Wangaratta

Mouthguards WangarattaIf you play a sport where there is a risk of injury to the mouth, mouthguards can keep your teeth protected and intact. It isn’t uncommon for sports players to accidentally have a tooth chipped, broken, or even knocked-out due to a sporting injury, so it’s vital that you protect your smile from the moment you participate.

Advantages Over Store-Bought Guards

While over-the-counter mouthguards are relatively inexpensive, they tend to be ill-fitting and don’t provide the same level of protection as customised guards do. Our dental custom-fitted mouthguards are ideal for patients of all ages, including both children and adults.

They come in a variety of colous, including a combination of several shades in one design to match your favourite sports team colours.

Nightguards and Splints

Some patients suffer from bruxism, a condition that causes them to clench and grind their teeth during sleep. This can often result in painful headaches, sore muscles and damage to teeth, leaving the patient in need of more complex treatments.

Thankfully, bruxism can be effectively treated through the use of a custom-made nightguard or splint, which comfortably fits your bite and won’t irritate gums like over-the-counter options.

Often, a patient won’t know if they’re suffering from bruxism, so it’s essential to pay attention to the following signs and symptoms:

Teeth that are flattened, fractured, chipped or loose

  • The erosion of tooth enamel
  • Tooth pain or sensitivity
  • Tight, tired or sore jaw muscles
  • Pain in the jaw, neck or face
  • Pain radiating from your ear
  • Sleep disruption
