Mouthguards / gumshields
If you play contact sport, you are usually advised to wear a mouthguard to reduce the risk of damage and trauma to your teeth. Mouthguards cushion any blows to the face. Injuries in nearly every contact sport, such as rugby, hockey, lacrosse and kickboxing can result in damage to your teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue. This makes a mouthguard an essential part of your sports kit!
The most effective mouthguards are custom-made by your dentist. These are professionally designed from models of your teeth and are tailored to you. This means that they are secure in your mouth, cushion your entire jaw and do not interfere with your speech or breathing. The laboratory we use to make your mouthguard offer many different designs and colours so you get complete control over your custom-made design.
