Protect your teeth with a custom made mouthguard
Dental injuries such as chipped or broken teeth can be painful and expensive to repair. A mouthguard will help to prevent or minimise injury to your teeth while you’re playing sport or participating in other high-risk activities.
Investing in a custom made mouthguard will guarantee a greater fit, more comfort and protection. Custom mouthguards are available for adults and children.

More Information on Custom Made Mouthguards
What are the benefits of custom made mouthguards
While store bought mouthguards are widely available over-the-counter, custom made mouthguards offer a more personalised solution.
Custom made mouthguards fit better as they are designed specifically for your mouth. They allow for clearer speech and are often more comfortable to wear.
How are custom-made mouthguards fitted?
Our Gold Coast dentists will take an impression of your mouth and make a plaster model of your teeth. This is used to construct your custom-made mouthguard.
Custom-made mouthguards are often fitted over two appointments, one for the impression and the second for picking up your mouthguard and ensuring it fits correctly.
How long do custom-made mouthguards last?
Custom-made mouthguards for children need to be replaced when new teeth come through.
Our dentists recommend a check-up before each season to ensure your mouthguard is still fitting correctly.
How do I care for my custom-made mouthguard?
Proper care will extend the life of your custom-made mouthguard.
Always rinse your mouthguard in cool water after use and store it in the container provided. Never subject your mouthguard to high temperatures as it may become distorted or change shape. If needed, you can occasionally wash your mouthguard in mouthwash or denture cleaner.
Do I have to pay for my mouthguard upfront?
At Pimpama Dental you can pay off your custom-made mouthguard using Zip Pay or Afterpay.
