When you are taking part in any sporting activity where there is a strong chance of contact with other participants or hard surfaces it is vital to protect your teeth from harm.
A mouth guard is like a crash helmet for teeth! It covers the upper teeth with the aim of cushioning a blow to the face. It can minimise the risk of damaged or broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, cheeks or jaw.
Wearing a mouth guard can help give you the confidence you need to perform to your full potential, safe in the knowledge that your teeth are well protected.
A custom-made mouth guard from your dentist can offer the best protection for your smile. The rubber-like cover fits exactly over the teeth and gums making it comfortable and helping it to stay in place.
