Here at Westbury Dental Care, we design and create custom-made sports mouthguards for both younger children and adults. If you are participating in weekly sports that involve regular contact such as Rugby, Hockey, Cricket or Boxing, it’s imperative to get our help and protect your precious teeth from the rough and tumble of sports play. Sports mouthguards that we design are made to fit your mouth perfectly and comfortably.
What are the Benefits?
There are many benefits of having mouthguards when playing contact sports. It’s obvious that you will be at risk of fewer mouth injuries that prevent damage to the oral tissues, lips and teeth. However, sports guards protect much more than just your teeth from being knocked out; they also help to minimise the impact of collisions.

In our opinion, it is strongly advisable to wear a professionally made mouthguard if you play impact sports. Any impact to the face, either from a ball or another player, can cause shock waves to travel through your jaw area leading to bone damage, or a direct hit can shatter or chip a tooth. Dental injuries in fact are a common occurrence in the kinds of sports outlined above. A mouthguard will not help prevent chipping or breaking teeth as a result of impact, it will act as an effective shock absorber to help protect against a painful broken or dislocated jaw.
If you are looking for a truly custom-made sports mouthguard, look no further than Westbury Dental Care and Implant Centre. Our dental professionals will invite you in for an initial consultation where we will take the impressions of your upper and lower teeth. We are more than happy to listen to any special requirements and request for your mouthguards to ensure that they are a perfect fit for the long-term, regardless of what impact sports you play. Once impressions have been taken, we will then send them off to our partner laboratories where they will be custom-made for you. Once they return to our practice, we will invite you back in to try them on for yourself and make any adjustment where it’s necessary to do so.
If you consistently play impact and contact sports on a weekly basis, we highly recommend sports mouthguards and they are a fantastic investment for protecting your teeth. Sports mouthguards can be used for sports where traumatic dental injuries are most common. These sports include Rugby, Boxing, Hockey, Martial Arts, Ice Hockey and many more!
