Mouth Guards

Athletes of all ages participating in a sport that carries a risk of a damaging knock to the face or head (while playing and/or training) should wear a mouth guard.  Such sports may include football, rugby, cricket, basketball, hockey and water sports.  A custom made mouthguard is specially fabricated to your child’s teeth and will assist in cushioning a blow to the face that otherwise might result in an injury to the mouth or jaw.

Here at LARA dental, we understand how important it is to have a properly fitted mouthguard. We offer custom made mouthguards that are designed in specialised labs.

The Australian Dental Association and Sports Medicine Australia both recommend custom fitted mouthguards. If you are part of a club, who are looking to put in place a mandatory policy, you are welcome to download the mouthguard policy document from the Australian Dental Association website.
