Contact sports such as football, hockey, martial arts, basketball and even cricket (especially wicket-keepers) are a part of a healthy active life, but they can involve heavy knocks to the teeth and mouth. If you or your child is playing a sport where there is a chance of being hit in the jaw or head, wearing a custom-made mouth guard will help prevent common dental injuries such as chipping, cracking or knocking out teeth, as well as soft tissue injuries such as split lips, cheeks and gums. A mouthguard will also act as a shock absorber between the jaws and reduce the chance of a broken jaw or TM Joint injury
Any mouthguard is helpful, but our custom-fitted ones will give more protection and will always fit better (and therefore be more comfortable and more likely to be worn)
If your child is undergoing orthodontic treatment, a mouthguard is critical to help protect their teeth from damage. As the teeth are fairly loose when being moved there is a greater risk of being knocked out completely. A mouthguard will help too if braces are in place, as the lips, cheeks and tongue will need protection.
Your mouth guard can be professionally made incorporating your favourite colours or can be made clear to be less visible.
If you love your sport or want to protect your child’s smile from sporting injuries, come in for a custom mouth guard consultation.
