COVID-19 Update: We are open & committed to maintaining the health of our patients & staff
For the sportsman or woman in Geelong, custom sports mouthguards are on the list of ‘must-haves’. Just like there is nothing worse than wearing in a cheap pair of shoes, wearing an ill-fitting mouthguard can be an uncomfortable, even painful, experience. Jenna Currie of Golden Plains Denture Clinic knows first-hand the pain of finding the right sports mouthguard to perfectly fit your mouth.
And if you wear braces, you will know that the search for the perfect mouthguard can become more like a quest! Whether you are playing serious football on the weekend or playing your first rugby season at school, Jenna is committed to making the process of getting a sports mouthguard seamless and smooth.
There is nothing worse than worrying about an uncomfortable or ill-fitting mouthguard when you are supposed to be focused on the game. You need to perform well, and so does your mouthguard.
Of all the safety equipment you need to buy to make sure your sport is safe and fun, the humble mouthguard is probably the most important. But what does it do exactly? Simply put, it guards your mouth from knocks and bumps; it protects your teeth to stop them from cracking, breaking or being knocked out and it protects your jaw from impact injuries caused by knocking against teeth. There is simply no other protective item that works quite like the mouthguard.
A sports mouthguard:
– absorbs impact and disperses it around the jawline, preventing collisions from badly impacting any one part of the face;
– keeps your teeth in position, preventing them from clanging against one another and being pushed out of alignment when hard contact occurs; and
– prevents internal damage to your teeth, jaw, and mouth when the pressure of play intensifies.
No mouthguard, no play. That is the rule…but what referees and umpires often miss is that a badly fitting sports mouthguard – too big, too small, or just a wonky shape – can be worse than no mouthguard at all. Neither you nor your child should be entering the game unless they have a professionally designed and fitted mouthguard for sport. Golden Plains Denture Services specialises in custom mouthguards to suit any Geelong sporting endeavour.
With 16 years’ experience and being local to Geelong, Jenna, our professional Dental Prosthetist creates high-quality products whilst offering friendly customer service, no matter your code or age. Whether it is a football mouthguard, an MMA mouthguard, or whatever other sport you play in Geelong, Jenna can create a mouthguard that will give you the right protection to pursue what you love.
Every face is different, especially when we are young and still growing. That is why a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach does not work for kids. Using generic gel guards for you or your child can actually undo years of meticulous dental work. Jenna, our professional dental prosthetist carefully and professionally measures, designs, and personally fits all kinds of custom mouthguards to kids of all ages.
As a parent herself, Jenna knows how to work comfortably and professionally with children. She knows how to guard against the dangers of mal-shaped mouth wear and is passionate about ensuring all kids are given expertly fitted, high-quality mouthguards.
It is a sad fact, but a generic mouthguard bought at a sports store won’t fit orthodontically fitted braces. Although braces might be ‘short-term’ on your or your child’s teeth, they are really a ‘long-term’ investment that must be protected by a custom mouthguard, made by a qualified and experienced dental prosthetist, with exceptional attention to detail. You may be preventing eventual damage or further costs later by paying a little bit more attention to the protection of your mouth now.
Without a properly fitting mouthguard, kids or adults with braces face the prospect of not playing the sport they love until those braces come off! Our face is the part of our bodies that people look at the most and our teeth are front and centre.
It is no wonder then, that so many people are already anxious about how their braces look without then having to manage the frustration of a mouthguard that does not fit properly and simply does not work for them.
That is why a custom mouthguard made by Golden Plains Denture Services, is just so important. And with the Jenna Currie ‘perfect fit’ guarantee, you can bring your new mouthguard back to get adjusted or replaced at no extra cost, until your happy with the fit and feel of your new mouthguard.
