Mouthguards and Splints

Keys to Smile’s custom-made mouthguards will shield your teeth like no other

Do you play contact sports? If yes, you will need a mouthguard to protect your teeth from significant injuries. Contact sports can lead to broken teeth or jaw, and damage to lips and gums. Similarly grinding teeth while asleep can severely wear and damage your teeth and cause disruptive headaches and jaw aches and pain. Shielding your teeth is as crucial as maintaining a good game on the field, which is why Keys to Smile offers custom-made mouthguards in Keysborough.

What is a mouthguard?

A mouthguard is a thick shield that covers your teeth preventing damage due to excessive abrasion. They are custom-fitted to your teeth so you can comfortably play contact sports. They help to prevent injury or damage to your teeth that can not only be expensive but also painful and time consuming.

How does it help?

A one-size-fits-all approach for mouthguards will only cause damage to your teeth. In consequence, our team caters custom fitted mouthguards that fit your teeth ensuring better protection. They are generally made of a material that acts as a buffer on impact. It helps absorb the shock and lessen the effect of the force on teeth.
