Teeth Protection for Sports 

The wearing of mouth guards is essential in contact sports for the protection of teeth and jaws.

Serious dental injuries caused in sports such as rugby, hockey and football can be difficult and expensive to repair. A relatively inexpensive, professionally made mouth guard offers maximum protection for your smile.

Professionally fitted mouth guards offer much higher levels of protection than shop sold “boil and bite” type gumshields which tend to be thinnest in the areas requiring most protection.

A wide variety of colours and designs are available. Ask your dentist or reception for more information.
