When it comes to sports, protecting yourself is paramount. Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, ensuring your safety will not only provide peace of mind but also enhance your performance. One essential piece of protective gear that should never be overlooked is a mouthguard. Here are two common types:


Footy season has kicked off! No matter which team you go for, you’ll notice one similarity: the players wear custom mouthguards!

Custom-fitted mouthguards offer superior protection against dental injuries compared to over-the-counter counterparts. We individually craft them in our dental office, using molds made from impressions of a patient’s teeth. This ensures that each guard is perfectly suited to their unique mouth structure, providing greater comfort and protection than generic models.

We can also customise mouthguards to your team’s colours!


These OTC mouthguards are readily available and can provide some protection. The downside is they are not designed to fit your teeth perfectly, and often feel bulky and uncomfortable. The wearer’s breathing and communication can be affected, leading to distraction and performance issues.

What Are the Benefits of Wearing a Mouthguard?

Wearing a guard offers many benefits, including

  • Prevents dental injuries and tooth loss
  • Reduces the risk of jaw injuries
  • Improves breathing and communication during athletic activities
  • Enhances performance by reducing distractions and promoting focus
