For protection when playing sport
A mouthguard is a custom made, rubber-like cover that should be used whenever you play sports that involve physical contact or moving objects. It fits exactly over your teeth and gums, cushioning them and protecting them from damage.
All of these sports can all cause injury to your mouth. A mouthguard will help prevent broken/damaged teeth or broken/dislocated jaws.
Also if you grind your teeth or have worn teeth, you may need to wear a mouthguard at night. The mouthguard creates a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth to protect them from further damage.
Mouthguards are tailor made to fit you
An impression of your mouth is taken and a bespoke mouth guard constructed by the laboratory. This creates the best-fit mouth protector.
If you require any further details about having a bespoke mouth guard please speak to your dentist who will be more than happy to help you.
