Custom Mouthguards in Caroline Springs
What are Custom Mouthguards?
Mouthguards are vital for protecting your teeth and preventing injury during sports, but they can be uncomfortable to wear.
A custom-made mouthguard is a better option than either a stock or boil-and-bite mouthguard. While custom mouthguards are more expensive than over-the-counter mouthguards, they fit your mouth perfectly for maximum protection. It means that you’ll have more comfort while wearing it, which will reduce the risk of accidentally removing it by rolling over on it or chewing on it in your sleep. It also provides superior protection against dental injuries like broken teeth, chipped fillings, and jaw fractures.
If you want to safeguard your teeth from harm during sports activities or damage caused by bruxism, talk to Magical Smiles about getting a custom-fit mouthguard today! Custom mouthguards made by Magical Smiles are fitted to snuggly wrap around your teeth and protect them when it matters most.

What are Custom Mouthguards?
Mouthguards protect your teeth, gums, tongue, and cheeks from trauma caused by sports injuries or teeth grinding. It can prevent you from chipping or losing your teeth, damaging a nerve in a tooth, and damaging the soft tissues of your lips, gums, tongue, and inside cheeks.
Sports injuries are not uncommon, especially for sports like football and ice hockey, where there is significant contact. Every year, thousands of athletes suffer sports-related injuries.
Sports injuries can damage your teeth and tongue. For athletes, mouthguards provide dental protection against impact. They can help protect teeth and lips while doing any activity that risks the mouth, including non-contact sports like basketball and skateboarding.
Another type of mouthguard is a bite splint, used to treat bruxism or chronic clenching and grinding. Bruxism is frequently linked to obstructive sleep apnoea.
Most people tend to grind their teeth due to stress. It can happen while you’re driving home from work, sitting at the desk or even when you’re sleeping. Since overuse can cause your teeth to wear down and break, a mouthguard for bruxism trains your temporomandibular joint (TMJ, the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull) and jaw muscles to relax.

FAQs About Custom Mouthguards
Getting a custom mouthguard starts with taking an impression of your teeth. Then we pour a mould into the material to create a replica of your mouth. Next, we melt and suck down a thick layer of acrylic over the model, trimming and smoothing the contours for a comfortable fit.
Your custom mouthguard is usually ready within a week of taking a dental impression.
