Mouthguards and Nightguards

A custom mouthguard in Coffs Harbour, NSW protects smiles and allows you to enjoy athletics with less worry for your teeth and gums. Remember, it only takes one stray ball to cause injury! 

The custom-made mouthguard is made especially to fit you, so it is more comfortable to wear and therefore provides more protection for your mouth.

When a mouthguard fits the unique contours of your mouth, you don't have to worry about rubbing and irritation, and you may be better protected from sports-related injuries. Your Coffs Harbour dentist can adjust your mouthguard as well to give you the proper fit and comfort. 

The “boil and bite” mouthguard is less comfortable to wear, provides less protection, and you also need to be cautious not to burn your mouth while trying to get the mouthguard fitted.

At Arthur Street Dental, we like to provide safe and innovative solutions for our patients. We want their prosthetics and mouthguards to fit and function as intended. 

For a Custom Mouthguard in Coffs Harbour, We Welcome Your Call 

The health and safety of your smile is our top priority. If you play sports or work around dangerous equipment, we would love to fit you with a custom mouthguard to protect your smile.

If you compete in contact sports, work around dangerous or unpredictable machinery, or if you're involved in activities that could injury your teeth or gums, a custom mouthguard in Coffs Harbour may help protect your smile.

Of course, there are shop-bought mouthguards available, but they do not offer the same protection as a customised protective appliance created by your dentist. They do not adhere to the contours of your teeth and gums. This means they do not protect as well as your dentist would like. 

Additionally, an ill-fitting mouthguard can rub against your cheeks and gums and create irritation. With a custom mouthguard, you do not have to worry about these issues. 

A mouthguard that is professionally made by your dental practice will cover and protect your teeth, soft tissues, jaw, and jaw joints. This means a mouthguard helps lower your risks for soft tissue injuries, tooth loss, and damage that can require many dental appointments to repair. 

You Can Protect Your Smile with a Custom Mouthguard in Coffs Harbour, NSW

We never want your teeth or gums at risk, which is why we provide custom mouthguards made from materials we trust right here in our dental clinic. 

Our team welcomes your call. 

A mouthguard is essential for contact sports, including mild contact sports. You should also consider a custom mouthguard in Coffs Harbour if you play sports that involve a ball. A stray ball can do a lot of damage to your soft tissues, teeth and gums.

Additionally, you might consider a mouthguard if you do gymnastics or work around unpredictable and dangerous machinery. A custom mouthguard creates a buffer between incoming objects and your vulnerable teeth and gums.

Your Coffs Harbour dentist recommends a custom mouthguard for maximum protection. When we customise your appliance, it means that it fits your mouth specifically. This provides greater protection compared with something you purchased in a shop.

Sports and work-related injuries can mean ongoing dental appointments to repair the damage, and we do not want this to happen to you. We want you to enjoy your time and fitness without worrying so much about your smile as well. With a custom mouthguard, you may significantly lower your risks for injury.
