About sports mouthguards
Using a sports mouthguard is an effective way to protect your teeth when playing sports, particularly contact sports, such as rugby and football. Given how common sporting injuries to teeth are, a dental mouthguard will absorb the impact of any blows you experience whilst playing and prevent your teeth from becoming cracked, loose, falling out or damaged to the point of extraction.
Protect against sports injuries and damage caused by tooth grinding
Our dentists will create a custom fit mouthguard for you, that is comfortable to wear and capable of absorbing force applied to the face effectively. They can even prevent jaw dislocation.

The key to an effective sports guard, is how well it fits your mouth. If you’re not thinking about your facial discomfort, you’re naturally more able to focus on the game. Here at our practice in Steyning, Sussex, we will take an impression of your mouth in order to ensure the sports guard is the perfect size for you. It will be created in the lab, according to our specific instructions and given dimensions.
