Mouth Guards in Melbourne CBD

A mouth guard is essential to protect your teeth while playing any sport that could cause physical trauma. Slips, falls, hits, and accidents can have lifelong consequences for you or your child’s smile. At Collins Dental Image, we provide these customised dental appliances to shield your teeth, minimising the risk to you, or your children, of needing major dental work like crowns, implants, or root canal treatments.

What Are the Benefits?

Alternative options such as non-customised mouth guards do not properly protect your teeth, but instead give a false sense of security. Some studies have shown that these generic, over the counter options may even worsen dental trauma, as they can concentrate the impact at the gumline.

Our professionally made laminated mouth guards however will help blunt the force of any trauma. While these appliances cannot completely protect your teeth from all injuries, they will minimise any damage, making it unlikely that you’ll need major dental work.

What to Expect

We recommend having a new mouth guard made each year that your child plays sports. Your child’s teeth constantly move, grow, or erupt, making last year’s guard no longer fit properly. Think of it as an inexpensive insurance policy. While updating your child’s appliance may seem inconvenient, the cost is minimal compared to the monetary and biological costs of a severe tooth injury, as well as the appointments required to treat the dental injury.

Adults generally do not need new mouth guards annually.

Why Choose Collins Dental Image?

We offer a wide array of colours and fun customisation options for kids. Choose your favourite sporting team colours, or have your nickname put in.

Our dentists will take accuate impressions at your first appointment and provide your mouth guard at your next visit. This process usually takes about two weeks. If you’re worried about having goop in your child’s mouth to take an impression, we can use digital scanning to take a digital impression of your child’s teeth.
