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 mouthguard 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 mouthguard 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 mouthguard 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.
