Advantages of Custom Mouthguards
Protection: Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and you need to be prepared. Wearing a mouthguard can help protect your teeth and gums from injury. Whether you’re an athlete or grind your teeth, mouthguards can provide you with the protection you need to maintain your beautiful smile.
Preventing injuries to your teeth and soft tissues is best achieved with custom-made mouthguards from your dentist. At Joondanna Family Dental, we believe that everyone deserves to have the best protection for their teeth and gums. Thus, we provide our patients with custom-made mouthguards to ensure maximum comfort and durability.
Snug Fit for Comfort and Efficiency: A custom mouthguard can offer maximum protection for your smile. With their custom-fit design, custom mouthguards will cover the teeth and gums entirely and fit perfectly over them. As a result, the impact force is dispersed over a wide area.
At Joondanna Family Dental, our mouthguards are made from high-quality materials and carefully fitted to suit the unique shape of your mouth. This allows them to provide maximum protection no matter how active you are.

Stable: In addition to their perfect fit, custom mouthguards also have suction. Hence, you can rest assured that your mouthguard will stay in place. You don’t have to be constantly worried about them sliding around.
Joondanna Family Dental offers custom mouthguards that are comfortable and will never slide out of place. These innovative guards are comfortable, easy to wear even if you have braces, and will stay in place. Your mouthguard can be less of an issue, so you can concentrate on your game or activity.
Manage Sleep Disorders: If you are dealing with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), there are a number of common side effects that can affect your health, including snoring and other disruptions at night, such as teeth grinding and clenching. These behaviours put a lot of stress on your teeth and can lead to significant dental damage over time. However, there is an effective treatment option that can help to prevent these issues: a custom-made night guard.
Also known as an occlusal splint or mandibular advancement splint, this innovative device fits snugly over your teeth and effectively prevents cumulative stress by cushioning and protecting them from harm. And beyond its dental benefits, wearing a night guard can also help keep your airways open during sleep, preventing the potentially dangerous effects of OSA on your overall health. If you’d like to experience these benefits, visit Joondanna Family Dental today for more information.

FAQs about Mouthguards
Mouthguards are necessary for the following reasons:
- To safeguard your mouth from injury when you play a sport that exposes you to the risk of falling or getting hit in the face.
- To improve sleep quality, relieve painful muscle tension, and prevent joint damage when you snore or have sleep apnoea.
- To prevent damaging or wearing down your teeth if you have bruxism, or grind or clench your teeth at night.
Over-the-counter mouthguards, like boil-and-bite mouthguards and stock mouthguards, come in generic one-size-fits-all styles. They can be purchased at most drug stores and sporting goods stores. In contrast, custom mouthguards are created by your dentist from dental impressions. They are custom-made to fit your teeth and mouth.
Due to their suction, custom mouthguards will not fall out since they will stay in place. Keeping the mouthguard in place using your tongue or lips isn’t necessary. Over-the-counter mouthguards may cost less. However, they do not cover the teeth and gums enough and do not have the suction effect.
Since over-the-counter mouthguards aren’t custom-fitted, they are bulky and uncomfortable. In addition to their superior protection, custom mouthguards fit better and allow you to speak comfortably. They also do not make breathing difficult.
Since they fit more comfortably and can be tailored to fit specific conditions, custom mouthguards or night guards can also be used to treat bruxism, sleep apnea, and snoring. An over-the-counter mouthguard is meant mainly for sports and is not recommended for bruxism, sleep apnea, or snoring. A night guard serves a different purpose. It is designed differently from what you would wear for sports. Wearing an improper mouthguard can lead to injury.
Before and after using your mouthguard, you should clean it as follows:
- Do not use hot water or leave in the car where it can melt.
- Wash your mouthguard with lukewarm or cool water. The thermoplastic materials used to make mouthguards can warp when exposed to hot or warm water.
- Use dish soap and water to get rid of any lingering bacteria or food particles.
- Next, brush it gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste.
- You can soak in denture cleaning tablet once a week, but not necessary.
- After soaking your mouthguard in the solution, let it dry on a clean, hard surface.
