If you participate in a contact sport where you are likely to make contact with a hard object, you should wear a sports mouthguard to protect your teeth.
We offer a range of mouth guards for most ages and protection levels. They are all custom made mouth guards. We only offer this type as they give better fit and protection than ‘boil and bite’ types.
- Light: for children with only their milk teeth present, who play sports that do not involve a hard stick or ball eg. football.
- Medium: for sports players with at least some of their adult teeth who play sports that do not involve a hard stick or ball eg. football.
- Heavy: for sports players who may encounter a hard stick or ball eg. hockey.
- Heavy-pro: for serious sports players who may encounter a hard weapon or hard ball going at speed eg. cricket.
Making your custom sports mouth guard
First your dentist will take putty like moulds of your upper jaw. The mouth guard is then constructed in a laboratory from a specially formulated soft and flexible high impact absorbing polymer.
Because the mouth guard is individually made for you it will give better protection, and be more comfortable. It is clearly marked with your name to avoid mix ups, and comes with a free protective carrying case.
A range of colours are available to choose from. You can even have your team colours!
