Mouth guards are mostly used in boxing and other sports to prevent trauma in the teeth. Most of these are manufactured using Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, a plastic material that is tough, yet acts as a cushion to protect your teeth.
This material is also easy to mould and preferred as a universal choice for making mouth guards. Indirectly, mouth guards will even protect your neck and the brain from getting damaged. Parramatta Green Dental provides custom designed mouth guards for our patients, which are specially designed by our dentists.
Mouth guards can also be bought directly, but not all of them would fit perfectly. Moreover, the purpose of a mouth guard will be entirely lost if it does not fit perfectly in your mouth. This is precisely why you will have to consult a dentist.
Parramatta Green Dental follows a simple procedure to give you the perfect mouth guard
- The dentist will perform an examination of your teeth
- Impressions will be taken separately for the upper and lower jaws
- The moulds will then be sent to a laboratory, where our technician will work on the guard
- The custom made guard will then be fabricated
- After this, the guard will be tried on the patient
- If any changes are required they will be done and the guard will be fitted again
