We are dedicated to delivering custom mouthguards that surpass expectations in precision and quality.
What Are Mouthguards?
Mouthguards are protective oral devices worn over the teeth to help prevent injuries to the mouth, teeth, and jaw during physical activities or sports. They are typically made of soft or hard materials and come in various shapes and sizes to fit different individuals’ mouths comfortably.
Mouthguards serve as a cushioning barrier, absorbing and dispersing the impact force that could otherwise cause damage to the teeth, gums, lips, and jaw.
Types of Mouthguards
When it comes to safeguarding your smile, choosing the right mouthguard is essential. To help you make an informed decision and find the perfect fit for your oral protection, here is a list of the various types of mouthguards.
These are pre-made, ready-to-wear mouthguards that come in standard sizes. They are usually the most affordable option but may not provide the best fit and comfort as they are not customisable to an individual’s mouth shape.
Boil-and-bite mouthguards are available over-the-counter and made from a thermoplastic material. Users place the mouthguard in hot water to soften it, then bite down to shape it to their teeth. This method allows for a more customised fit compared to stock mouthguards, offering better protection and comfort.
Custom-fitted mouthguards are professionally made by dentists. They involve taking impressions of the individual’s teeth and crafting a mouthguard specifically tailored to their mouth. These mouthguards provide the highest level of protection, as they fit precisely and comfortably, allowing for easy breathing and speaking during physical activities or sports.

The Perfect Custom Mouthguard for Your Smile
At Mindarie Quinn Dental Centre, we take great pride in crafting custom mouthguards that provide a perfect fit for your teeth. We take precise measurements of your teeth to create a personalised oral appliance that not only fits seamlessly but also allows for natural breathing and speaking.
Our experienced dental team follows a meticulous process to craft custom mouthguards that cater to your unique needs. Here is the step-by-step process:
During the consultation, you discuss your specific needs and the level of protection required for your mouthguard.
Once the decision to proceed with a custom mouthguard is made, your dentist will take precise impressions of your teeth. These impressions create an exact mold of your mouth, ensuring the mouthguard fits your teeth and gums perfectly.
Using the impressions, a model of your teeth is created in the dental laboratory. This model serves as a template for crafting the mouthguard.
Based on your specific requirements and the level of protection needed, your dentist will select the appropriate material for your mouthguard. Custom mouthguards are typically made from high-quality, durable materials.
Using the model of your teeth, the dental laboratory fabricates the mouthguard to fit the unique contours of your mouth. The mouthguard is precisely shaped to cover your teeth and gums comfortably.
Once the mouthguard is ready, you return to the clinic for a fitting. Your dentist will ensure that the mouthguard fits perfectly and makes any necessary adjustments for optimal comfort and effectiveness.
What our clients say
“Have been a client here for over 10 years and highly recommend this practice. Dr Lubinka has been my dentist for 12 years since I moved from the UK. Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and her communication is outstanding. The administrative, support and dental nurse staff here are equally exceptional. Customer focused, positive, flexible and polite. Have never ever considered going anywhere else. Highly recommended.”
“Thank you to all the staff for being so caring and accommodating for my husband's first visit. Dr Lubinka has set him on a path toward dental health recovery. This practice has even inspired me to visit for a checkup and that’s somewhat miraculous!”
“Excellent customer service, with friendly and experienced staff! This is so helpful when you have a child who has always been anxious going to the dentist. Dr Master is so professional and composed that I don't even need to go in with my child when she has an appointment. He makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the service you receive and that's at no additional cost to you!”
“What can you say? Who loves going to the dentist? My experience has been awesome. No pain, no fuss, friendly and professional. Do I want to go again? No. I want to take better care of my teeth. Yet, if I have to go, I definitely will be back here.”
“I cannot praise Mindarie Quinn’s dental staff highly enough. My son had an accident at school resulting in a chipped tooth, the desk staff were amazing, shifting around appointments to fit him in for emergency treatment. Dr Aron was brilliant. He was calm & gentle with a traumatised boy. Within the hour we were back home with a fixed up-front tooth. This is my usual dentist, and my experiences are always great, but the care we received today in an emergency was so professional and reassuring, I felt the need to leave a review of our experience. Thank you for the incredible treatment we received with you today.”
“Staff are always super friendly. Really helpful when it comes to dental emergencies. My teeth are forever grateful.”
“Myself and my children have been seeing Lubinka for years. She is kind, patient, friendly and explains everything very well. My daughter had to have 4 teeth extracted and the procedure went very well because of her trust in Lubinka. The other staff are also lovely. We highly recommend this practice.”
