Mouth guards are essential to protect the teeth and lips for anyone who is playing contact or non-contact sport including football, hockey, netball, boxing, basketball, skateboarding, gymnastics, mountain bike riding etc.
Custom made mouth guards provide the best possible protection due to superior fit, comfort and strength of the materials used.
Night guards are devices that are commonly worn at night to protect the teeth, jaw joints and muscles from excessive biting forces caused bu night grinding. It is estimated that one in four people will experience some sort of jaw pain in their lifetime.
If the dentist identifies that you would benefit from a night guard, two appointment will be made. Your first appointment will be to take impressions of your exact oral specifications and to take a record of your bite. These records are then sent to a laboratory where trained technicians construct the night guard. It will be returned to the clinic within three weeks. At your second appointment, the night guard will be fitted and adjustments made if required.
