Lane Cove Orthodontics – Best Wishes for the Season

Message from Our Sponsor

The team at Lane Cove Orthodontics are thrilled to be supporting the club again this year and wish all the players a fantastic season ahead. It really does give us a kick (no pun intended!) when one of our patients comes into the clinic and tells us about their achievements at the Cats or we see them in their playing tops around the Village.

We are so fortunate to have such a family friendly club in our community and are always impressed to see both girls and boys being encouraged to participate. Likewise we continue to be in awe of the efforts made by the volunteers. We feel it is this culture that makes Lane Cove Cats a special club and is why we are so happy to be a sponsor each year.

As a member of the Cats club, we are happy to offer you a free consultation and if you have any queries regarding orthodontic treatment by a specialist orthodontist please contact Dr Rex and the team on 9427 8088.

Go Cats!
Dr Teriko Rex and the Lane Cove Orthodontics Team

Apple Dental – Mouthguards and Dental Trauma

Message from our Sponsor

One of Lane Cove Cats major sponsors is Apple Dental.   The owner of Apple Dental, Mark Casiglia has been involved heavily with the Lane Cove Cats and he has been a dentist in Lane Cove for over 25 years!   Mark has some wise words here with regards to mouthguards and dental trauma, which will be of interest.

Mouthguards are important for the protection of teeth when playing sport. Store-bought mouthguard offer protection against lip lacerations but due to a lack of tight fit against the teeth, dental injuries inside these types of mouthguards is common. They may also affect performance on the field due to the distraction of trying to constantly keep the mouthguard in place. Talking on the field, which is often critical to the outcome of play, is also difficult if not impossible with a loose mouthguard.

Professionally fitted custom mouthguards fit intimately against the teeth, adapt well against the opposite teeth, stay snugly in place and offer far better protection against dental injuries.

Should an injury occur such as a tooth being knocked out, the best course of treatment is to put it back in, without too much concern about whether it is straight or not. The socket is the best protection for the tooth. If this is not possible, storing the tooth in milk or wrapping it in cling wrap is the next best course of action. Either way, seeking out a dental visit as soon as possible after the injury is critical.

Thank you sponsors!

We are a junior sporting club run by volunteers. Therefore we rely on the generosity of all our sponsors, big or small. Fortunately we have a great bunch of sponsors who provide much needed support to allow the club to nurture our kids.

So a big thank you goes to all our key sponsors.

Obviously our platinum sponsor Holgate First National Real Estate has been a great supporter over the past couple of years. We’ve also great support sponsors such as Apple Dental and Lane Cove Orthodontics.

However we also can ignore Gillard Consulting and Avionics. While they may not be in the spotlight, like our major sponsors, they provide critical financial support for the club, for which we are internal grateful for.

So if you need some lighting for your personal airport, Avionics should be your first port of call. Otherwise, Gillard Consulting could no doubt help with any commercial legal issues you may have.

Mouth guard offer from Apple Dental

This year Apple Dental will be repeating their special mouthguard offer. At $120, this is a significant discount to what Apple Dental charge for non-Lane Cove Cats members.

We would highly recommend members take up this great offer from our major sponsor.


Why get a custom fitted mouthguard?

Mouth-guards have a definite role in preventing injuries to the teeth and face and for this reason they are strongly recommended at all levels of football.

Dentally fitted laminated mouth-guards offer the best protection. ‘Boil and bite’ type mouth-guards are not recommended for any level of play as they can dislodge during play and block the airway

The cost of treatment to replace or repair missing teeth can run into thousands of dollars whereas a good quality mouthguard is relatively cheap to purchase. Ideally, anyone who participates in contact sports, plus a fair number of non-contact sports such as horse-riding, bicycling and skateboarding, should wear a well-fitting mouth-guard.

While it is possible to buy over-the-counter mouth-guards for just a few dollars, these are often very uncomfortable to wear, fit poorly and will offer very little protection. It is worth paying a bit more to get a custom-fitted mouth-guard from your dentist. This is designed to offer maximum protection to the teeth, gums, lips and cheeks and will be comfortable to wear. Comfort is an important factor as an uncomfortable mouth-guard is likely to remain in its box during sports.

Apple Dental will take impressions of your mouth which are sent to the dental laboratory so a mouthguard can be made. It will be fitted on your next appointment and is then ready to use. It is important to make sure you clean it thoroughly after each use and store it in the container provided, making sure it is away from direct heat which could distort it.
