Everyone involved in contact sports is at risk of damaging their teeth. Wearing a properly adapted mouthguard will significantly improve your chances of protecting your teeth from serious injury. A properly fitted guard is easy to get used to and doesn’t dig into your gums or cheeks and it should not affect either your breathing or speech. When prescribed by a dentist they allow for some growth of adult teeth and shedding of baby teeth.

Many schools insist their pupils wear a sports mouthguard. You can choose from a wide range of patterns and colours or even co-ordinate your mouthguard with your school or team colours.
