I need to get my 7 year old a mouthguard for AFL and am wondering if anyone has any advice on the best mouth guards for kids. He has only lost 1 tooth so far so I’m assuming there will be more to follow.

Ask your question

  • Talk to the club, sometimes they offer discounts for bulk orders through the team or talk to your dentist.



  • I would head into a sports store and ask them for advice, have a look at a few, and then decide



  • Talk to the club. There are the book your own ones from the chemist, they’re around $10 but my Rugby playing OH says they can effective but uncomfortable. Professional guards if you have no extras cover are around $200 I think? At least that’s the cost at a bupa dentist.



  • Game Day Mouthguards are awesome. They send you the putty to create a mold like you’d have at the dentist and then you send the cast of your kids teeth back to them. I received perfectly fitting mouthguards back in return



  • I agree that dental technicians would be the best option.



  • We always get them fitted by a dental technician – generally they fit better and are more comfortable.



  • We went with dental recommendations for mouth guards. :)



  • iF YOU CAN AFFORD IT GET ONE FROM YOUR DENTIST. wHEN MY KIDS WERE YOUG USED TO BY THEM AT CHEMIST’SSOAK IN HOT WATER TO MSKE THEM PLIABLE,ADJUST THEM TO THERE TEETH WHEN COOL BUT STILL WARM ENOUGH FOR THEM TO PRESS THEM IN PLACE. vERY IMPORTANT FOR CHILDREN TO WER MOUTH GUARD.

  • I’m sure Rebel sports sells them, but I don’t know anything about the quality of these.



  • A dentist or pharmacist can recommend the best one – always good to be able go with your child for 1:1 mouth guard advice.
