What are custom made mouthguards?

Custom-fit mouthguards are made by a Toothwear dental professional from thermoplastic material and are based on a detailed mould taken of your mouth and teeth.

Why do I need a custom made mouthguard?

The mouthguards are personalised for each individual, no two custom mouthguards are the same, therefore they are the best solution for protecting your teeth.

How do I know if I need one?

Custom mouthguards can be created for either sports, nighttime teeth grinding, tooth whitening and are made differently depending on the intended use.

You might need a custom mouthguard if:

  • You practice any high contact sports like football, rugby, hockey, soccer, wrestling, basketball, lacrosse it is highly recommended you wear a sportsguard to prevent sports injuries to jaw bones and teeth
  • If you were told before by your dentist that you grind or clench your teeth and you need a nightguard or have previously worn a nightguard 
  • You would like to whiten you teeth fast and efficiently
  • You wear orthodontic retainers and need new ones

How to care for your mouthguard?
  • Clean your mouth guard after usage with a soft toothbrush and soap, rinse it and then let it air dry
  • Do NOT use toothpaste to clean the mouth guards as it scratches the surfaces and makes it prone to plaque and bacteria build-ups
  • Do NOT use water hotter than 40°C as it can deform the appliance
  • You can use effervescent special cleaning tablets(same used for dentures or special ones for mouth guards) once or twice a week to keep the mouth guard fresh and bacteria-free. Cleaning tablets coming soon to Toothwear also, stay tuned!
