Dear Joy Readers
Ok now I know all of you Dad’s out there are now so proud and excited that your son is about to start playing Rugby League, Rugby Union or AFL. But I also know that all the mother’s out there are panicking and worrying about all the injuries that may occur. So we thought we would give you some information that will at least protect those precious teeth.
So all boys playing some type of football code will need a mouthguard. Last year we were put onto a fabulous place at Graceville for our sons mouthguard, The Westside Denture Centre.
All we had to do is make an appointment, pop along for an impression to be made, the kids get to pick from a huge range of colours (be prepared there are so many) and then they make the mouthguard, you go back in a week and it is fitted correctly on the spot. The great thing is for any standard mouthguard they will bill your private health fund directly and there is no out of pocket expense to you. However if you would like a high impact mouthguard which is great for boxing and rugby union then there is a gap to be paid. They have HICAPS on site so you won’t need to send any claims off to your health fund either.
Now as the name states they obviously also do full and partial dentures as well.
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Just give them a call on 3278 0580 and remember there is no referral needed.
So now you can tick mouthguards off your list and work on the rest of the suit of armour we as mother’s would love our kids to be wearing while playing footy.
