Protecting Your Teeth

A custom fit mouthguard protects teeth from dangerous impact injuries. All sports present the risk of injury to you and your child’s teeth. Typical injuries that can occur without the use of a mouth guard are chipped or broken teeth, fractured crowns or bridgework, lip and cheek injuries, root damage to the teeth, fractured jaws, and concussions.
Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to your face, which might otherwise result in an injury to your mouth or jaw. Dental injuries can result in time off school or work to recover, can be painful and disfiguring, may involve lengthy and complex dental treatment and lead to lifelong consequences. The cost of an injury to your teeth or jaw far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard!

Why Custom Fit Is Best

Custom mouthguards are made to fit the teeth and gums closely and therefore offer greater comfort and protection than pre-fabricated mouthguards. They not only help minimise dental injury but can also reduce the severity of concussion whilst playing contact sports.

They offer a high quality product that meets all the standards for maximum protection, is lovely to work with and has endless design and colour combinations available.
