Sports mouth guards are moulded rubber protectors to safeguard your jaw and mouth during contact sports such as rugby, hockey, and boxing. The guards protect your upper and lower teeth, as well as your gums. The dentist takes an impression of your mouth to create a customised mouth guard in a colour of your choice.
They are durable and easy to clean. Mouth guards should be replaced each season because they wear down over time and can become ineffective. Also, adolescent mouths continue to grow, and their teeth continue to develop into adulthood, so having a new mouth guard made at regular intervals is a good idea, especially if your teen plays multiple sports.
Many sports present a risk of injury, and the mouth is particularly vulnerable as hard tackles or balls can knock or chip teeth. Our dentists offer mouth guards of different thicknesses, to balance comfort with the protective needs of each sport.
Sports mouth guards can offer protection against dental trauma such as fractured teeth. They also provide protection for athletes who wear braces or who have had other dental work such as veneers or bridges.
Prices for a fitted mouth guard start from £120 depending on the patient and guard type.
