Get into Mouthguard Month

Rugby-Playing-Not-Wearing-Mouthguard

March is Mouthguard Month here at Robelle Dental Centre.

Across Australia thousands of adults and children are treated for dental injuries that could have been prevented or minimised by simply wearing a properly fitted mouthguard. The Australian Dental Association strongly recommends the use of a custom fitted mouthguard. We recommend wearing your mouthguard:

  • where intentional collision and contact are part of the game such as rugby, hockey or boxing;
  • during any other sports or activity where there is a risk of accidental collision or impact at speed and/or with hard surfaces or equipment, e.g. cricket, basketball, netball, touch football, soccer, skating, skateboarding, acrobatics, martial arts;
  • at any age and skill level;
  • during games and all training sessions.

Making your mouthguard is simple. We take an impression of you mouth and pour it up in dental plaster. Our dental laboratory then makes the mouthguard to fit your mouth exactly. Unlike the the “boil and bite” ones, custom mouthguards are comfortable to wear and don’t move during your sport.

Play it safe, make an appointment or give our reception staff a call on 3470 1313.
