You spend a lot of time and effort in making sure that your smile stays the way you want it, so when there are times that you need a bit of extra protection for your teeth, it’s important to make sure that you have the right mouthguard.

A mouthguard is a specially made, rubber-like cover which fits exactly over your teeth and gums, cushioning them and protecting them from damage.

It is important to wear a professionally made mouthguard whenever you play sport that involves physical contact or moving objects. This includes: cricket, hockey and football – which can cause broken and damaged teeth; and American football, boxing and rugby – which can all cause broken or dislocated jaws. A mouthguard will help protect against these events.
