Mouth Guards

Damaged or knocked out teeth, broken jaws and cut lips can be sustained when playing sport. Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to your face, which might otherwise result in an injury to your mouth or jaw.

Custom-fitted mouthguards should be worn whilst playing and training for any sport where there is a possibility of contact to the face.

The Australian Dental Association (ADA) strongly recommends wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard to ensure maximum protection. These are available from your dentist. http://www.mouthguardawareness.info/downloads/factsheets/which-mouthguard.pdf
