Custom Mouthguards

Girls playing rugbyAre you or your teen involved in sports? Depending on your activity, different types of mouthguards can provide added protection against:

  • Fractured enamel
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Concussions
  • Lacerations and bleeding
  • Broken dental work

River Dental has the facilities to make your custom mouthguards on-site, rather than send them off to a third party. So, whether you’re involved in boxing or soccer, we can set you up with the right protective equipment as quickly as possible.

Getting a Mouthguard Made

If you’ve never worn a custom mouthguard, the creation process is quite simple. We’ll book you for a quick impression to create moulds of your smile. From there, you’ll select the colour of your preference and we’ll get to work. About 3-4 days later, your athletic bite guard will be ready for pick up.

A Smart Investment in Your Smile

The modest cost of an athletic mouthguard starts as low as $150 but can save you thousands. Simply avoiding the risk of fractured teeth, tooth avulsion or potential emergency room visits make your custom bite splint one of the best pieces of protective athletic equipment that you can wear.

Care and Maintenance

It’s important to store your athletic mouthguard in a cool, dry place. Leaving it in a car or cleaning it with boiling water can cause irreversible warping and damage to the acrylic.

When you’re not wearing your sports guard, keep it in the case. We recommend cleaning it with lukewarm soapy water at least once a week or more to prevent bacterial buildup.

Adults with fully developed smiles can keep wearing their guard year after year. However, if you get braces or update your dental work, you’ll likely need a new mouthguard made once the athletic season starts back up.

Added Advantages of a Custom Mouthguard

Although you can purchase a one-size mouthguard at the chemist, the fit will be generally looser. If you fall or get bumped in the mouth, it can’t protect your teeth and lips as well as an appliance that’s fitted to your bite. It might even fall out. But with a custom mouthguard, your splint should stay in place at all times.

The customised fit of a professional mouthguard makes it more comfortable to wear. Plus, it’s less cumbersome when it’s time to hydrate or talk to your team.
