Damaged or knocked out teeth, broken jaws and cut lips can be sustained when playing sport. Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to your face, which might otherwise result in an injury to your mouth or jaw.

Custom-fitted mouthguards should be worn whilst playing and training for any sport where there is a possibility of contact to the face.

The Australian Dental Association (ADA) strongly recommends wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard to ensure maximum protection. These are available from your dentist.

Peninsula Health Community Dental program has dental services for everyone either through our public clinics or private clinics.

Phone the dental service directly on 9784 8184.
