Mouthguards can protect you from serious sporting injuries, such as broken jaws, fractured, cracked or knocked-out teeth, cut lips and cheeks. Even non-contact sports like soccer, cricket, basketball, netball, skateboarding and soccer, carry a real risk of accidental collision resulting dental trauma.
How a Mouth Guard works
A custom-fitted mouthguard works by absorbing the impact of an injury, and is fabricated from an impression of your upper teeth.
A mouth-guard professionally made by a dentist is far superior to an over-the-counter mouthguard because it’s specially designed to fit the exact contours of your mouth. It also balances your bite and allows speech and normal breathing. If well looked after, a custom-fitted mouthguard should last years.
In contrast, over-the-counter mouthguards, or what are commonly known as boil-and-bite mouthguards, are not recommended. They are often loose and can impede breathing & speaking and can even be fully dislodged during play.
Custom-fitted mouthguards fit exactly to your teeth. They allow you to talk normally, don’t restrict your breathing and as a result won’t distract you from playing.

It was great customer service
The entire experience was straight forward from organizing the appointment to attending. Very clean practice with lots of natural light. I required an emergency appointment as my tooth was killing me. Thanks to Dr Harmeet who was very gentle and got rid off my pain. Now I can enjoy my coffee again.
I could not recommend Dr Harmeet more highly
I have been going to Harmeet for scale and clean for years. It prevents more serious dental issues and he bulk bills. I could not recommend him more highly.
I highly recommend this clinic
I have been attending this clinic for over 10 years and I have always found Dr. Harmeet so skilful in his dentistry. He always offers good advice for dental health maintenance and has stabilised what was, a mouthful of old deteriorating amalgam fillings AND he has never hurt me during any of the procedures he has done.
Please note if you are unable to attend your appointment 24 hours notice is required or a cancellation fee will apply. Three Broken appointments will result in further appointments at Dental Care @ Bentons being refused.
