Every year, dentists see thousands of sports-related accidents that have caused damage to teeth or even worse have completely knocked them out. The financial, psychological and social costs of dental injuries can be considerable. One study discovered that 75% of dental injuries amongst high school students happened while they weren’t wearing a mouthguard. When correctly fitted, a mouthguard can prevent shock and impact injuries to the teeth and jaws, reducing the risk of broken teeth and cut lips and jaw fractures. By choosing a custom-made mouthguard, your risk of suffering dental injuries is minimised.

Why Have a Custom-Made Mouthguard?

Custom-made mouthguards provide the very best level of protection and most importantly they are comfortable to wear and will not hinder breathing, so you will actually want to wear your mouthguard. Each mouthguard is specifically designed to provide maximum protection and is thickened in critical areas, according to your preference for particular sports. Custom-made mouthguards are fabricated using a model of your teeth, ensuring they fit the teeth exactly and if necessary they can be adapted to accommodate orthodontic appliances and braces. Our mouthguards are available in a wide range of colours and are made from a tough thermoplastic material that is odour-free and taste-free.
