No mouthguard no play!  We are heading once again into Winter sports time.  We remind all patients of the terrible impact a sporting injury can have on our teeth, jaw and soft tissues.  A knock to the mouth can result in losing teeth as well as significant long-term damage.  Most sports are now no mouthguard, no play; an initiative which we fully support.  Here at Adelaide City Dental Care, we make professional mouthguards for both junior and senior sport.

Our mouthguards are custom-made, comfortable and firm fitting to ensure maximum protection for you or your child.  They are coloured in the design of your choice and even have your name in them.  We love the choice Michelle made for her custom mouthguard. 😊  Also check out the video of how we make a mouthguard.

Should you or your child knock a tooth out, we would recommend the following steps:

  • Find the tooth, be careful to only pick it up by the “crown” of the tooth-not the root
  • If it is an adult tooth and fairly clean, put the tooth back where it came from (if you can)
  • Gently bite on a tissue to support the replaced tooth and get to the Dentist for assistance
  • If you are unable to put the tooth back in, store it in milk or saliva in a container and get to the Dentist immediately.

A chipped or broken tooth may also need to be assessed quickly.  Call and advise the clinic you have a mouth trauma and we will assess the tooth and decide on the best course of treatment with you.  We are here to support you in any emergency dental situation.  Call the clinic on 8212 3880 and will we assist you.

May the floss be with you!  As an avid Star Wars fan, May the 4th is one of Michelle’s favourite days of the year.  Expect a Star Wars meme or two on our Facebook page!!  We had a busy month during April. We hope you had fun over Easter and the school holidays. Michelle went overseas for a holiday; Trudy had some time away and Catherine took some time with her family over the school holidays.  All our staff also attended a Management course in April and we have an Infection Control course and Management of Medical Emergencies coming up in May.

See you in the clinic!  The Adelaide City Dental Care Team. PS:  check out our socials (Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram) for top tips for teeth, mouth and gums and dental family snaps!  Maybe even the latest video on YouTube.
