Protect your teeth from any accidents and injuries with a custom-made sports mouthguard. In some sports, gum shields are a compulsory requirement as safety is always top priority. We can make comfortable and reliable mouthguards that can be worn for contact sports such as rugby, hockey and martial arts.
Mouthguards are made from a strong, yet pliable, material which cushions your teeth against damage such as chips, cracks and tooth loss. They can also help protect your jaw, softer areas such as the lips, tongue and cheeks, and even your neck and brain.
You can buy mouthguards at sportswear stores, but these ‘boil and bite’ varieties don’t provide the same level of protection as a custom-made mouthguard. As we use impressions of your teeth, the guards fit perfectly and comfortably, meaning there’s no movement. The materials used are able to withstand more force and will stay in shape for much longer.
You should keep your gum shield clean by rinsing after each use and occasionally washing in cool soapy water.
So we can make sure your mouthguard is still fitting properly and remains in good condition, it is a good idea to bring it with you to your routine check-ups. Children and young adults will need gum shields replacing more frequently as they are still growing.
