How much do custom-made mouthguards cost?Everyones smile is differnet so the cost of a custom-made mouthguard can vary depending on your teeth and sometimes different sports may require varying specifications. Our orthodontic team will give you an indication of the price at your consultation appointment.
Are custom-made comfortable?Custom-made mouthguards are painless and are specifically designed to protect your mouth from damage when you play sport. You may feel some discomfort when you first start wearing your mouthguard, however this won’t last long and should resolve once you get use to wearing it.
How do custom-made mouthguards work?Custom-made mouthguards are designed to protect your mouth and teeth from injury when playing sports. These differ from mouth-formed and ready-made over the counter products. Custom-made are an exact fit to your mouth, to lessen the impact when balls, elbows, knees or anything else makes contact with your teeth or jaw.
How effective are custom-made mouthguards?Custom-made mouthguards are proven to be very effective at protecting your mouth and minimising injury while playing sports, especially contact sports. Providing a snug fit to your mouth, the material helps to reduce the force that may be caused by direct impact. Off-the-shelf, ready-made commercial mouthguards don’t offer the same amount of protection and are not as comfortable or retentive.
