Mouthguards

Sports Mouthguards

Personalised mouthguards from a dentist offer more protection and comfort for the serious sportsperson

Playing sport, you have probably gone through a few mouthguards over the years. And while the over-the-counter mouthguards are budget-friendly, they can inhibit speech and are uncomfortable.

Benefits of custom-made, performance mouthguards

Performance mouthguards are custom-made, comfortable and make talking with a mouthguard easier . They also provide great protection for your teeth, gums and jaw. Studies have shown that wearing a mouthguard can help to mitigate some of the damage caused by concussion.

Benefits of a performance mouthguard

Five benefits of choosing a performance mouthguard are that they:

  1. Can be claimed on select health funds
  2. Are safe—they contain no cadmium or heavy metals
  3. You can breathe freely and communicate effectively

Performance mouthguards from Bonfire Dental

Bonfire Dental offer custom-made mouthguards fitted to your teeth. These mouthguards are specifically designed to be worn for high-intensity sport. They are a  preferred choice for some of the world’s leading professional athletes.

A mouthguard designed to enhance your athletic performance

By stabilising and balancing your head and neck muscles, performance mouthguards support full body alignment to help to enhance your athletic performance.

The design of the mouthguard helps to align and reposition your jaw to be in the best position to cushion an impact while maximising your comfort. This design is centred around three aspects:

  1. Alignment
  2. Position
  3. Cushion

Custom-made mouthguards can help to realign your jaw into a better position and to better protect your jaw joint from an impact. The improved position of your jaw then helps to stabilise your head, neck and lower jaw to improve body alignment balance. The mouthguard also decompresses your jaw joint to reduce possible nerve compression. This has the added benefit of dissipating some of the damaging force caused by an impact.

How seriously do you take your sports?

Performance mouthguards are for athletes looking to take the best care of themselves. Unlike over-the-counter mouthguards that rely on you to mould them around your teeth, custom-made mouthguards are designed and made especially for you.

This means tailored protection for your teeth and ongoing dental support.
