Mouthguards: Are your teeth protected?


Wearing a custom made mouthguard is the best way to protect your teeth while playing sport. A blow to the mouth can result in significant damage and expensive dental treatment. Give yourself the best protection and invest in a custom made mouthguard.


Custom made mouthguards provide a high level of protection and are more comfortable than over the counter alternatives. They fit securely and won’t fall out and leave your teeth unprotected during games or training. Custom mouthguards can also be labelled with your name and phone number so they can be returned if lost.
