Every person from 7+ years should wear a mouth guard when playing contact sports.
We are passionate about working with our community sporting clubs and players to protect every child and adult when playing sport.
One size does not fit all when choosing a mouth guard, general sports retail options often do not have the custom protection needed. If they come loose, they will not protect your teeth effectively.
Every child from the age of 7 should be wearing a custom fitted mouth guard if they are playing a contact sport. To create your custom mouth guard, we take a unique mould of your teeth and then build the plastic guard exactly to your mouth and teeth shape.
This process takes a week, and is less expensive than you may expect. Most mouth guards will last a number of years, depending on the changes within a growing mouth and teeth. You can even pick your favourite colour.
We strongly encourage every sporting club to have a mouth guard policy, and are available to support this process.
Ask us about hosting a mouth guard fundraiser, we can take mouth guard moulds at your clubroom, with a portion of each order donated back to you.

A Free Initial Consultation at Martin Vale Dentistry is the waiving of the fee usually applied to an initial consultation appointment. During an initial consult, we assess your dental concerns, identify any risks attributed to your current dental conditions and provide advice and recommendations of what action (if any) should be taken. Where suitable we may provide photographs or additional printed information for reference. This value of an Initial Consultation is the equivalent of the standard fee for a consultative appointment, which ranges between $60 and $90.
Free Initial Consultations do not include radiographs of the teeth or associates structures. This process can be undertaken at your request, with applicable fees quoted for your approval, and payment required at the time of appointment.
Initial consultations can vary in duration depending on each patient’s needs and concerns, ranging from 15 to 45 minutes, at the discretion of our Dental team. We are committed to answering all of your questions, and providing easy to understand, efficient and effective advice on the option available to you, and costs applicable.
The ongoing provision of Free Initial Consultations is at the discretion of Martin Vale Dentistry.
