Mouth guards are coverings used to protect teeth from injury caused by grinding or sport.
Whilst you can buy a standard mouth guard at most sporting shops, adjusting these for a good fit is difficult.
To ensure a perfect fit, a custom made protector can be made for you in the surgery. This involves taking an imprint of your teeth which is used to mould the mouth guard giving you a customised guard which provides the best comfort and protection.
Most mouth guards cover upper teeth only, however lower jaw guards can also be made. Your guard should be comfortable, durable and easy to clean and should not restrict breathing or speech.
