What is a mouthguard?
A mouthguard is a costume made, rubber-like cover which fits exactly over your teeth and gums, cushioning them and protecting them from damage.
When would I need a mouthguard?
It is important to wear a professionally made mouthguard when you grind on your teeth during sleep or when you play sport that involves physical contact or moving objects. This includes: cricket, hockey and football – which can cause broken and damaged teeth; and lacrosse, boxing and rugby – which can all cause broken or dislocated jaws. A mouthguard will help protect against these events.
