Trauma from injuries to the face and teeth during sport can be considerably painful and expensive to repair. In severe cases, trauma to the face may lead to concussion and even end a sports career.
Every year, millions of teeth are injured or lost due to trauma and injuries during sport.
By investing in a sports mouth guard (also spelled mouthguard) for yourself or your child, you could be saving yourself costly dental visits in future.
Here at Absolute Dental Care in Taringa, Brisbane we work towards keeping our patient’s smiles healthy and complete. Although we do provide restorative dentistry with crowns, bridges and other restorations, prevention is always the better option rather than replacing and repairing lost or damaged teeth.

How is a dentist prescribed mouth guard different to an over the counter mouth guard?
Although a store purchased mouth guard can provide some protection for the patient, a mouth guard prescribed by a dentist is custom fitted. This means that the design and fit of the mouth guard will be able to provide a more comfortable and protective fit for the wearer.
At Absolute Dental Care your mouth guard will be designed from an impression in a mold taken from the shape of your teeth and gums.
A custom-made mouth guard from Absolute Dental Care is designed to suit the mouth of the wearer and fabricated using strong durable materials to protect the teeth, gums and jaw from impact during sports.
