Mouth Guards

Sports mouth guards

We can provide custom-made gumshields for all age groups and sports. Some professionals require thicker guards, some people want their team colours. Whatever your requirements, we can accommodate them.

After a short appointment to take an impression of your teeth and surrounding tissue, your finished custom mouthguard will be with you in just a few days.


Many people suffer from bruxism (tooth grinding) or clenching of their teeth whilst they are asleep. This can lead to a host of problems like bruised teeth, cracked teeth and fillings, and jaw problems. Pain and tenderness around the jaw joint area (temporo-mandibular pain dysfunction syndrome) is one such distressingly common side effect of bruxing. The symptoms can include limited jaw opening, a clicking when opening your jaw and cramp-like pains radiating from in front of your ear to all parts of your face and head.

Depending on your symptoms, a soft or hard plastic nightguard can often alleviate or totally eliminate the effect of bruxing.

If you think you suffer from any of the above symptoms then make an appointment with one of our dentists to discuss the matter further.
