Custom Mouthguards in Tweed Heads

Are you active? Do you have a child that participates in sport? The risk of injury is always there. A hit to the face, head or mouth can impact your overall health. With a custom-created mouth guard from TC Smiles, you can be sure to protect your teeth, gums, jaw and head.

A similar device is called a night guard. The purpose is different, however, with it being worn primarily at night to protect from teeth grinding. Also custom-created, our night guards are comfortable and fit you snugly.

Sport Mouth Guards

Young boys playing soccerThe many sports that can benefit from having a mouthguard include boxing, martial arts, rugby, football and cricket, amongst others. If there is any chance of a collision, it’s a wise idea to wear a mouth guard.

Having a mouth guard designed and fitted just for you is the most effective way to prevent injury while playing your sport. You’ll find that ours are comfortable and allow you to breathe and speak as normal. You can even choose your mouth guard colour to match your team.

Mouth Guards for Kids

Children and teens should make the most of their active lifestyle. If your child is active in sport, a mouth guard is a must. Even non-contact sport can result in an injury, particularly because it’s unexpected. By wearing a mouth guard, they can prevent an impact from taking its toll and make sure their teeth stay in great shape.

Why You Should Avoid Do-It-Yourself Kits

Though you can buy a kit to make your own mouth guard or night guard at the chemist, these will not fit like a professional-grade one. You’ll find that such a mouth guard is loose and doesn’t protect your teeth well. Our mouth guards will wrap around your teeth, protecting them as well as your lips. It can also prevent a concussion from occurring thanks to how it rests on your teeth.

Similarly, our night guards are comfortable, provide the proper thickness and allow your jaw to get the rest it needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a mouth guard?

Most sports, at one time or another, become a contact sport. A mouthguard doesn’t just protect your teeth, it also protects your jawbone. It’s very easy to break or snap teeth with minimal trauma, so wearing a mouthguard is important. The cost of losing a tooth is a lifetime of repeated dentistry.

Is an over-the-counter mouthguard as good as a custom fitting mouth guard?

Over the counter mouthguards don’t fit properly, or cover the vital areas, because they’re one size fits all, which doesn’t work.

How often should mouthguards be replaced?

For youths, you should be able to use them for one or two seasons; adults should be a lot longer.

Can mouthguards be personalised?

There are unlimited options for custom mouthguards. You can consider things like adding your name, favourite colour, team colours, and much more.
