Mouth guards and gum shields are carefully shaped covers which fit over your teeth, and protect your teeth, lips and tongue from damage.
There are different types, some used for protection from sports injury, others to prevent damage through grinding your teeth during sleep (bruxism).
If you’re playing sports, you can reduce the chances of chipping, cracking or losing a tooth by using a mouth guard. Off-the shelf types are available, but may not fit as well or offer the same level of protection as a fitted one.
We can advise you on the types available to meet your needs.
