The WRFL is proud to announce an exciting new partnership with Hobsons Bay Dental and 3D Guard.

Hobsons Bay Dental is a well-established and successful dental group existing for more than 45 years.

With a focus on patient care, a relaxed approach and community involvement, the practice services the majority of Melbourne’s Western suburbs from two convenient locations in Altona North and Williamstown.

With a clear vision of delivering the best for their patients, Hobsons Bay Dental is continually updating skills, techniques and technology to remain at the forefront of the dental profession.

Hobsons Bay Dental offer the full range of modern dentistry, from general family treatment, to more specialised options such as Invisalign, Snoring and Sleep Apnea appliances, Cosmetic Dentistry and Facial Injectables.

They have strongly embraced digital dentistry, incorporating state of the art 3D mouth scanning, 3D printing, and 3D design to streamline treatments. They have developed and pioneered the use of this technology and are an exclusive provider of 3DGuard custom professional mouthguards.

3DGuard produces market leading mouthguards for many of Australia’s elite sporting professionals and have now launched their products to the public, to fulfil their vision of protecting everyone with the latest in dental mouthguard innovation. Using cutting edge 3D scanning and printing technology creates a precise fit, and makes your mouthguard feel like it’s a part of you.

They have addressed the issues with other outdated manufacturing techniques, such as gagging on impressions, inaccuracies of fit, looseness, thick uncomfortable material, and are producing a mouthguard that fulfills protection guidelines yet maximises wearability.

Made from medical grade high impact pure EVA material with shore hardness 75 to Australian Guidelines, 3DGuards are designed to be lightweight and effective. 3DGuards are fully individualised with unlimited colour combinations, stylised graphics and slogans, specialty patterns and unique options such as mirror chrome grillz and wraps.

They are currently the mouthguard of choice to players from Western Bulldogs, Collingwood, Richmond, Geelong, Carlton, GWS Giants AFL & AFLW, as well as many VFL and other community teams. The list of teams and players embracing this technology is growing by the day.
