Sports Guards

Sports guards, or gum shields, protect your teeth when engaging in any activity that puts your mouth in the firing line. Contact sports such as rugby, hockey, boxing or martial arts will require you to wear a sports guard. We offer custom-made sports guards that are moulded perfectly to your teeth. These provide much more reliable protection and are less likely to slip. They are made from a strong, yet pliable, material which cushions your teeth against damage such as chips, cracks and tooth loss. They can also help protect your jaw and softer areas such as the lips, tongue and cheeks.

For the perfect fit, we take an impression of your teeth, which is sent to the laboratory for manufacture of your customised sports guard. Once fabricated we call you back for an appointment to fit the appliance and will make sure it fits correctly.

Why have a custom-made sports guard?

While the gum shields you can buy at a sports shop are cheaper, they are less effective at providing protection. These ‘boil and bite’ mouth guards are made from a softer material as they need to be moulded at home. As we use impressions of your teeth which are then used to craft the sports guard, they will have a better fit. They are also made from a harder, denser plastic which provides far more adequate protection.

You can choose to have a coloured guard and/or have your name printed on.

Patient Testimonials

I had a tooth infection and this practice gave me an immediate appointment. The dentist was very knowledgeable and talked me through the process of correcting the underlying issue. The receptionist was also very professional and understanding.

Very impressed with the service.
