Why Consider a Mouthguard?

Lots of children love to play sports and while parents may spend significant sum of money on an equipment, a mouthguard is something that is often overlooked. A blow to the jaw can chip or crack a tooth or even knock it out completely, or may cause more substantial injuries including a fractured jaw or concussion. Every year there are thousands of dental injures as a result of participating in sports and many could have been avoided or minimised with the use of a properly fitting mouthguard.

Why Choose a Custom Mouthguard?

Buying an ill-fitting and uncomfortable over-the-counter mouthguard can prove a false economy as these offer minimal protection at best. They are more likely to become dislodged or will hinder speech or breathing so are less likely to be worn. Our custom-made mouthguards are fabricated from tough, tear resistant materials that are odourless and tasteless. Each mouthguard is specifically designed to offer increased protection in critical areas and they come in a wide range of colours and designs. Our mouthguards are comfortable to wear and do not restrict breathing or speech so they are far more likely to be worn.

We do check the condition and fit of custom mouthguards at regular intervals, particularly for children whose teeth and jaws are still developing. This is to ensure they still offer the greatest level of protection.
