Custom made mouthguards are specially made, rubber-like cover which fits exactly over your teeth and gums acts like crush helmets and protecting them from damage. Therefore it is very important to wear a professionally made mouthguard when ever you play sports involving physical contact sports or moving objects, such as Boxing, Rugby, football, Hockey, Lacrosse, Martial Arts and any other sport where there is a risk of dental damage.
Custom made sports mouthguards can only be obtained by a Dentist or Denturist who is allowed to take the moulds of the tooth arches. Mouthguarsd are made by taking an accurate impression of your mouth and making the mouthguard to fit your own teeth and gums. By registering the way your jaws bite together to make sure that the mouthguard meets properly with your teeth. The process of taking moulds is quick and painless.
We don’t recommend low cost and over the counter “Boil and Bite” types of mouthguards as they provide a false sense of protection. During their fitting they thin out, in the very areas where thickness of material is most required for protection. They are hard to keep in place and have been known to work loose and became lodged in the airways, causing suffocation and interference with breathing and speech.
We offer a wide range of colours, multi-coloured and different designs. There are also different thickness of mouthguards depending of what type of sport is being played.
The cost of a mouthguard is very little in comparison to the risk of damage or missing teeth and cost of expensive dental work that could be prevented. It is a small price to pay for peace of mind.For further information or to book an appointment – contact us or make an online booking
