Custom Mouthguards

Our commitment to excellence ensures that each custom mouthguard is meticulously crafted to provide the perfect fit and superior protection.


What Are Mouthguards?

Mouthguards are protective dental devices designed to cover and cushion the teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures during sports or physically demanding activities.

They act as a barrier against potential impact, minimising the risk of dental injuries, such as chipped or broken teeth, knocked-out teeth, and injuries to the lips, tongue, and jaw.

Types of Mouthguards

When it comes to safeguarding your smile, choosing the right mouthguard is essential. To help you make an informed decision and find the perfect fit for your oral protection, here is a list of the various types of mouthguards.

Custom Mouthguards

Custom mouthguards are considered the gold standard for optimal fit, comfort, and protection. Dentists create custom mouthguards by taking detailed impressions of the patient’s teeth. These impressions are used to fabricate a personalised mouthguard using high-quality materials.

Custom-made mouthguards offer a precise fit, ensuring maximum coverage and effectiveness. They are comfortable to wear and provide superior protection against dental injuries. However, they may be more expensive than other types of mouthguards.

Boil-and-Bite Mouthguards

Boil-and-bite mouthguards are available over-the-counter and can be moulded to the user’s teeth. To achieve a custom fit, the mouthguard is softened in hot water and then placed in the mouth, allowing it to mould to the shape of the teeth.

While boil-and-bite mouthguards offer a better fit than stock mouthguards, they may not provide the same level of comfort and protection as custom-made ones.

Stock Mouthguards

Stock mouthguards are pre-made and come in standard sizes. They are ready to use right out of the package without any adjustments. However, since they are not customised to an individual’s mouth, they may not fit as well as custom-made or boil-and-bite mouthguards.

Stock mouthguards are generally the least expensive option but may offer less protection and comfort.

We use high-quality materials to create mouthguards that are durable, long-lasting, and comfortable, giving you the confidence to engage in sports and other activities with peace of mind.


How to Choose the Right Mouthguard

Choosing the right mouthguard is essential to ensure proper protection and comfort during various activities. Here are some tips and considerations to help you select the most suitable mouthguard based on your individual needs, activity level, and dental health:


If possible, opt for a custom-made mouthguard. These mouthguards are crafted by dental professionals to fit your teeth precisely, offering the best comfort and protection.

Activity Level

Consider the type of activities you will be engaging in while wearing the mouthguard. For high-impact sports or activities with a higher risk of dental injuries, a well-fitted mouthguard with maximum shock absorption is recommended.


While custom-made mouthguards may be more expensive, they offer the best fit and protection. However, there are affordable boil-and-bite options that can still provide adequate protection.

Age and Size

For children and teenagers, mouthguards should be age-appropriate and fit their growing mouths. Boil-and-bite mouthguards can be a good option for younger individuals as they can be remoulded as their teeth change.


Some mouthguards are designed with better airflow, making it easier to breathe while wearing them, which can be especially important during physically demanding activities.

Tips for Caring for Your Custom Mouthguard

Proper care and maintenance of your mouthguard are crucial to ensure its longevity and effectiveness in protecting your oral health. Follow these guidelines to keep your mouthguard in excellent condition:

  • After each use, rinse your mouthguard with cool water or a mouth rinse to remove any debris or saliva. Avoid using hot water, as it may distort the mouthguard’s shape.
  • Store your mouthguard in a ventilated container when not in use. Make sure it is clean and dry before storing to prevent the growth of bacteria.
  • Refrain from chewing on your mouthguard or using it for purposes other than its intended use. This can cause premature wear and tear.
  • Avoid sharing your mouthguard with others, as it can lead to the transfer of bacteria and increase the risk of infections.
  • Bring your mouthguard to your regular dental check-ups for your dentist to inspect and ensure it fits properly.
  • Mouthguards can wear out over time, especially if used frequently. Replace your mouthguard as recommended by your dentist or when you notice signs of wear.

Everyone working at Coolamon Dental are so helpful & friendly. Dr. Gen is so patient with me knowing I am terrified of going to the dentist. The ladies in reception put you at ease as soon as you come in the door. They are so friendly & have a laugh with you which helps when you are so nervous. The dentist explains everything that's going to be done so there are no surprises. The rooms are absolutely spotless. I now don't mind going to this dentist. Can highly recommend Coolamon Dental.

Shaun and Jenny were fantastic.
I came in for a toothache and they were able to fit me in. I'm a nervous patient and Shaun did an amazing job of calming my nerves and explaining the issue and options and then sorted the problem with minimal discomfort.

I'll be back for regular checkups!

The staff here are all very friendly and helpful. The dentist was gentle and thoughtful. As I'm in a wheelchair he and his nurse were also very helpful. I recommend this practice and will go to them in the future.
