Sports Mouthguards

What are Sports Mouthguards?

Sports mouthguard are a custom made piece of athletic equipment used to protect your teeth mouth and gums, during contact sports and exercise. Impressions of your teeth are taken to ensure a close fitting comfortable sports mouthguard is made. The mouthguard will grip the teeth and gums so it will not drop down in the middle of a game. Good grip means breathing and even talking is easier! When sports mouthguards are correctly fitted and extended they give adequate protection to the teeth and the bone supporting the teeth. We can even get them made in your team colours.

Benefits of Sports Mouthguards

The main benefit of sports mouthguard is to protect your teeth while participating in contact sports. But they can also provide additional protection for your jaw, gums, and head during an impact. Since January 1st 2014, it has been mandatory for players in all grades to wear a mouthguard in all Gaelic football games and practice sessions.
