Children’s Mouthguards in Midland

Children's Mouthguards

The best protection

No matter what sport your child plays and of all the equipment in their bag the most essential is a properly fitted mouthguard.

At Helena Street Dental Midland we can create a customised mouthguard designed to fit over your child’s teeth and gums. A custom-fitted children’s mouthguard provides much greater protection than a ‘boil and bite’ mouthguard from a supermarket or chemist. It will also make it easier to breathe and add extra cushioning against an accidental blow to the face. A properly fitted mouthguard can also lessen the severity of a concussion.

A dentist created mouthguard should be worn not just when playing but also during training. This will ensure your child becomes familiar with comfortable wearing it and can breathe normally

To care for the mouthguard, ensure it’s kept away from heat and direct sunlight as this can cause it to warp and affect its fit. You should also rinse it after each time you use it and place it in its designated case to dry. This will prevent the growth of bacteria.

For more information on a mouthguard for your child, call us on (08) 9250 3100. You can also visit our practice at 2/42 Victoria Street, Midland WA 6056.
