The Australian Dental Association (ADA) have released recommendations for protection from dental injuries during sport. Download the ADA recommendations here.
The specialised mouthguards which are custom fitted here at our Sherwood practice are created with a plastic material called Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA). EVA is strong and durable and can be easily moulded and modified in order to fit precisely and comfortably over your teeth and gums. This allows the most ideal protection during impact and also allows speech and normal breathing during play.

Professionally-designed, bespoke mouthguards are often considered to be the most effective protective pieces of equipment to help prevent injury to the mouth, offering simultaneous protection of the teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue. A mouthguard may not only protect your mouth, it can also cushion any potential blows to the mouth or jaw. This can help to prevent damage to the jaw, neck or brain.
Having one of our dental professionals take individual impressions of your dental arches can help to create a guard to fit seamlessly into your mouth, teeth and gums, in order to provide the ultimate protection. The steps taken to create your mouthguard are often very simple: one of our dental professionals will take moulds of your teeth in both your upper and lower arches. These moulds will then be sent to our dental laboratory where our technicians can create a custom-made mouthguard.
Your sports mouthguard will need to be replaced over time. This can be a simple process – just bring your mouthguard along to your appointment and our dental professionals can assess the degree of wear and tear.
