Our custom mouthguards have the perfect fit for maximum protection
Darch Dental Centre offers custom-fitted mouthguards that are designed using cutting-edge technology and a mould of your teeth. Custom mouthguards are fitted to your teeth snugly enough to protect them when needed most. It provides a good defence against oral injuries like chipped fillings, broken teeth, and jaw fractures. Our dentist will take an impression of your teeth then send it to the dental technician who will make a custom-made mouthguard based on the shape of your teeth and the demands of your sport or sleeping disorder. A custom-fitted mouthguard won’t feel loose or fall out, and it won’t make you uncomfortable. At Darch Dental Centre, custom mouthguards are made from top-quality materials. They are designed to be comfortable and long-lasting.
Benefits of Custom Mouthguards
- Custom mouthguards are an excellent way to safeguard your teeth and gums from injury. They’re comfortable, easy-to-wear (even if you have braces), and they’ll fit snugly.
- Due to their custom-fit design, custom mouthguards will fit perfectly over the teeth and gums and completely cover them. As a result, the force of an impact is distributed over a large area.
- With custom-made mouthguards, you don’t have to constantly be thinking about how to keep your mouthguard in place because they have some suction. You can focus on playing your sport instead of worrying about your mouthguard.
- In the case of bruxism, custom mouthguards can be designed to protect your teeth from being worn down or damaged. Wearing a night mouthguard prevents damage to your teeth and reduces the strain on your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

FAQ's About Custom mouthguards
You may need a mouthguard for the following reasons:
- If you participate in a sport that exposes you to the risk of falling or being hit in the face, such as basketball, ice hockey, and gymnastics. Using a sports mouthguard reduces the risk of injury to the gums, teeth, lips, face, and jaw from indirect and direct hits.
- When you snore or have sleep apnoea. Special mouthguards, called “bite splints,” pull the lower jaw forward and open the airways, improving sleep quality.
- If you have bruxism, or grind or clench your teeth at night (bruxism). Bruxism can lead to chipped, cracked, or worn down teeth and even nerve damage without treatment. A night guard, or occlusal splint, can help prevent this.
Boil-and-bite mouthguards and stock mouthguards are generic one-size-fits-all mouthguards available at most sporting goods and drug stores. Custom mouthguards are specifically tailored to fit your teeth and mouth.
It is easier to keep custom mouthguards in place since they have some suction, making them impossible to fall out. You don’t have to think about using your tongue and lips to keep the mouthguard in place. There’s no doubt that over-the-counter mouthguards cost less, but they don’t cover the teeth or gums enough, and they don’t fit well enough to make the suction effect.
Over-the-counter mouthguards are bulky and uncomfortable as they are not custom-fit for your mouth. Custom mouthguards offer the best protection, fit better than any other type of mouthguard, allow you to speak comfortably, and do not interfere with breathing.
Maintaining your mouthguard properly will prevent bacteria from damaging it and prolong its life.
- You should rinse your mouthguard with cool water after every use and wash it with soapy water and a brush. Allow it to air dry.
- Never expose your mouthguard to direct sunlight or hot water. If it is exposed to heat, it may lose its shape.
- When not in use, store the mouthguard in a vented, durable plastic case.
- Whenever you visit your dentist, bring your mouthguard so they can examine it for signs of wear and tear.
The cost of custom mouthguards ranges from $150 to $250.
