MOUTHGUARDS

Mouth guards in Kippa Ring

At KR Dental we can make you a custom fitted mouthguard, which can help significantly reduce the risk of dental injuries. Sport, leisure and recreation activities are the most common cause of dental injuries.

A custom-fitted mouthguard is made by one of our dentists using an impression taken of your teeth and a plaster modeL Custom fitting allows the dentist to accurately assess your mouth and provide the best fit, size, coverage and thickness in a mouthguard especially made for you.

How to look after your mouthguard:

  • Rinse the mouthguard in soap and warm (not hot) water after each use. Allowing it to air-dry.
  • Disinfect the mouthguard from time to time with a mouthwash.
  • Keep the mouthguard in a well-ventilated plastic storage box when not in use. The box should have several holes in it.
  • Do not leave the mouthguard in direct sunlight, in a closed car or in the car's glove box. Heat can damage it.
  • Ask your dentist to inspect your mouthguard at every dental check-up.
  • Replace the mouthguard if it is damaged. Replace a child's mouthguard every 12 to 18 months, even if it appears to be in good condition. Growth and new teeth can alter the fit.
  • Replace an adult's mouthguard after dental treatment or tooth loss. Otherwise it should last for many years.
