Custom Mouthguards

It's mouthguard season! As everyone starts getting ready for winter sports, the inevitable question always pops up - does last year's mouthguard still fit?

 At North Brisbane Dental Clinic, we are firm believers in custom fit mouthguards. They protect the teeth by evenly distributing any force received over the entire mouthguard. Generic store bought mouthguards are often uneven and place more pressure on one area than another. This can result in injuries sustained to the teeth and surrounding soft tissues. 

We understand that the usual costs involved in dentist made mouthguards can be difficult to bear, and as such, we've decided to heavily discount our mouthguards. If you have private health insurance, you will have no out of pocket expense for one custom fit mouthguard per year. If you don't have private health insurance, the cost is $120. 

In order to make one of these mouthguards, we need to first take an impression (mould) of your teeth. This takes about 5 minutes. Once this is done, your mouthguard will be ready within the week. If you're interested, check out the video below to find out how we make them!

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
