Mouthguards

  • It is very important to wear a custom-fitted mouthguard when training and playing contact sport to help protect you against painful and expensive injuries to your teeth and mouth. 
  • If a tooth is cracked or chipped, see a dentist as soon as possible. Place any broken pieces of tooth in a small amount of milk, or plastic wrap if milk is unavailable, and take them to the dentist with you. 
  • Custom-fitted mouthguards should be worn whilst playing and training for any sport where there is a possibility of contact to the face. 
  • The Australian Dental Association strongly recommends investing in a custom-fitted mouthguard from your dentist. 
  • Have your mouthguard checked at your regular dental check-up to make sure it fits correctly and offers maximum protection. 
  • Keep your mouthguard clean and store it in a rigid container, away from heat to ensure it maintains its shape. 
  • Over-the-counter mouthguards do not provide enough protection against injuries to your teeth, mouth or jaw. Dental injuries can be very costly, so it is worthwhile investing in a custom-fitted mouthguard.

Tooth Mousse

  • Tooth Mousse is a safe and delicious topical cream which helps to remineralise teeth and reduce general sensitivity.
  • Tooth Mousse can help prevent and even reverse early stages of tooth decay for both children and adults.  

Toddlers

  • A child's first teeth are as important as permanent teeth and require daily care. 
  • Make brushing fun! Sing nursery rhymes or play a favourite song while you help your child brush their teeth. 
  • Consider a battery-powered tooth brush when cleaning your child’s teeth, this adds novelty when brushing.
  • A child who understands that teeth have to last a lifetime is more likely to take care of them. 
  • The average child has a full set of 20 primary teeth by the age of two to three years. Your child’s first visit to the dentist should be within six months of the eruption of their first tooth, or by their first birthday. 
  • Thumb sucking is a natural reflex in babies and young children. Most children lose interest in thumb sucking and dummies between two to four years of age. 
  • The appearance of primary teeth is commonly called ‘teething’. Many babies experience some discomfort during teething.
