How it works

What are Sports Mouthguards?

Sports mouthguards are protective devices worn over the teeth to safeguard them from injury during physical activities. These mouthguards are especially important for contact sports like football, hockey, boxing, and even non-contact sports like gymnastics or mountain biking where falls can occur.

Made from durable materials, sports mouthguards cushion the impact to the face, reducing the risk of broken teeth, cut lips, and other injuries to the mouth.

They will be custom-fitted by our dentist to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness, making them an essential piece of equipment for athletes of all ages and skill levels.

The Benefits


Protection Against Dental Injuries

Sports mouthguards provide a cushioning layer that absorbs and disperses the impact force, significantly reducing the risk of dental injuries such as chipped, broken, or knocked-out teeth during physical activities.

Prevention of Soft Tissue Damage

Wearing a sports mouthguard helps to prevent cuts and bruises to the lips, cheeks, and tongue by providing a barrier between the teeth and soft tissues, reducing the likelihood of painful injuries.

Reduction in Jaw Injuries

Sports mouthguards help to stabilise the jaw and prevent fractures or dislocations by absorbing shock and minimizing the force transmitted to the jawbone, especially in contact sports.

Minimisation of Concussion Risk

By absorbing and distributing the impact force, sports mouthguards can reduce the risk of concussions. They provide a buffer that helps to protect the brain from traumatic injury during high-impact sports.

Improved Performance

Custom-fitted sports mouthguards are comfortable and do not restrict breathing or speaking, allowing athletes to perform at their best without the distraction or discomfort of a poorly fitting mouthguard.


Investing in a quality sports mouthguard can save significant costs on dental treatments by preventing injuries. The expense of treating dental injuries far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard.

Common Questions

Questions? We've got Answers

Why do I need a custom-fitted sports mouthguard?

Custom-fitted sports mouthguards offer superior protection and comfort compared to generic versions. Tailored specifically to your mouth, they ensure a snug fit, making them more effective at preventing dental injuries during sports activities.

How often should I replace my sports mouthguard?

It’s recommended to replace sports mouthguards annually, or sooner if they show signs of wear and tear. Growing athletes should replace their mouthguards more frequently to accommodate changes in their teeth and jaw structure.

Can sports mouthguards help prevent concussions?

While sports mouthguards primarily protect the teeth and mouth, some studies suggest they may also help reduce the risk of concussions by absorbing and dispersing impact forces. However, they should not be relied upon solely for concussion prevention.

Are sports mouthguards required for all sports?

While not mandatory for all sports, sports mouthguards are highly recommended for contact sports like football, hockey, and boxing, as well as non-contact sports where falls or collisions are possible, such as basketball and gymnastics.

What types of sports mouthguards are available?

There are three main types: stock mouthguards, boil-and-bite mouthguards, and custom-fitted mouthguards. Custom-fitted mouthguards, created by dental professionals, offer the best fit and protection.

How do I know if my mouthguard fits properly?

A well-fitting sports mouthguard should be comfortable, snug, and secure without causing discomfort or hindering breathing and speech. If you experience any issues, consult our dentist for adjustments.

What materials are used to make sports mouthguards?

Sports mouthguards are typically made from durable, shock-absorbent materials like ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). Custom-fitted mouthguards may use advanced materials to enhance comfort, durability, and protection tailored to the individual’s needs.
