Protect Teeth with a Custom-fit Mouthguard

In any contact sport there is always a risk of injury to the head and jaw. The teeth are also vulnerable during sporting activities and this is why a mouthguard is an extremely important piece of kit. 

Ready-made mouthguards are cheap but offer only limited protection. It is worth paying a little extra to have your dentist make a personal guard. The advantages over store bought guards include:

  • Better, more comfortable fit
  • Increased protection for teeth and gums
  • Easier breathing
