At KR Dental, we care deeply about your smile, as well as your long-term oral health and wellbeing. This is why we offer additional services such as custom mouthguards, designed to give your smile extra protection when it needs it most.
Custom mouthguards are made from a high precision mould of your mouth. The mould takes the shape of a mouthguard and ensures that it fits properly. It forms the basis for our dentists allowing them to create a custom mouthguard that is built to the exact specifications of your teeth. Because of this process, custom mouthguards are viewed as more durable, safer and comfortable to wear. They should be less likely to fall out during play compared to store bought ones and adding the benefit of being easier to speak with when wearing.
Did you know that some of the most common athletic injuries are related to the mouth and face? Fortunately, it’s possible to reduce you or your child’s chances of a broken or knocked out tooth. Professionally fitted mouthguards offer the best protection possible to safeguard your teeth against dental emergencies. Especially if you’re involved in any type of contact sport.
Many of us play sport, but did you know injury or trauma to your teeth can result in serious dental concerns (like loss of a tooth)? This is why it’s vital that you or your children wear a dentist-made, custom-fitted mouthguard when playing contact sports. A sports mouthguard may be one of the most important pieces of protective equipment that you ever invest in.
These personalised mouthguards are made by one of our dentists using an impression taken of your upper and lower teeth. Custom fitting allows the dentist to accurately assess your mouth and provide the best fit, size, coverage and thickness, resulting in better protection against tooth damage, injuries to your mouth or jaw, or even concussion. Instead of a looser, bulky mouthguard you can find in stores, these devices hug your teeth snuggly and stay in place when you need them the most. Their comfortable, smooth design is easy to hydrate and talk with so that you won’t be tempted to take it out during the game.
Adults can keep their mouthguards for several seasons, assuming they don’t break or chew through them. If you can see daylight through the acrylic, it’s time to replace it. However, children will need to have their mouthguard updated each season until their mouth is fully developed.
There are some studies that suggest professionally fitted sports mouthguards can significantly reduce the chances of a concussion, due to the way they buffer the mandible (lower jaw) from the base of the skull and brain.
Yes. Looser stock guards tend to fall out during secondary injuries or lack the snug fit that provides the best level of protection.
Absolutely. We’re proud to make care affordable and available for patients of all walks of life and financial situations. Currently, we offer both zero deposit and zero interest plans. When you visit us for your consultation, we can speak more about the details and which may be best for you.
My very first dental experience. At the front desk Janet worked magic very pleasant and over welcoming. Heather also pleasant. Dr Erin Partridge did wonders to my teeth im very happy with. Margaret Butterfield as the assistant made it very comfortable for me thank you all soo much. You deserve a 10 star rating
Dr. Nipuni is the finest dentist I have taken treatments from. She is very professional, kind, flexible and gentle. In my recent treatment, Dr. Nipuni spent her valuable time lavishly in listening / comforting me, explaining the procedures, advising how to followup with the post treatment care. Most importantly, I didn't feel any pain during her caring treatments. 😄😄😄 I would highly recommend her and the KR dental to my friends and any patient needing gentle dental care.
