What Are Mouthguards?

These appliances are typically constructed from a pliable, flexible material that conforms to the teeth and gums, providing a cushioning effect to mitigate the impact. Choose Winthrop Village Dental for quality mouthguards in Perth, providing professional care to protect your teeth during sports.

Custom Mouthguard FAQs

Why should I get a custom mouthguard instead of an over-the-counter one?

Custom mouthguards provide a superior level of both protection and comfort when contrasted with over-the-counter mouthguards. They are meticulously crafted to match your unique dental configuration, ensuring enhanced retention and minimising the risk of shifting or dislodging while in use.

How is a custom mouthguard made?

The journey to crafting your custom mouthguard commences with a consultation at Winthrop Village Dental Centre with one of our skilled dental experts.

During this session, we will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your oral structure and engage in a dialogue about your distinct requirements and preferences. Subsequently, we will employ specialised dental putty to construct a precise mould of your teeth and mouth. This mould will be dispatched to our dental laboratory, where our adept technician will use it as a blueprint to craft a custom mouthguard meticulously tailored to your teeth and mouth contours.

How long does it take to get a custom mouthguard?

The process of making a custom mouthguard typically takes about two weeks, from the initial mould taking to the final fitting.

How often should I replace my custom mouthguard?

Custom mouthguards have the potential to endure for numerous years when given proper care, but replacement may be necessary if wear, damage, or alterations in your dental or oral structure occur over time.

For guidance on the ideal timing for mouthguard replacement, consult your dental practitioner, who can offer expert advice tailored to your specific circumstances.
