If you play a contact sport, wearing a custom-made mouthguard will protect your teeth from damage.
The British Dental Association advises against shop-bought mouthguards because they may not fit correctly and so won’t protect your teeth properly.

The Rugby Football Union and English Hockey Association both recommend using custom-made mouthguards.
Wearing a mouthguard doesn’t just help protect your teeth – it protects your brain too. By wearing a mouthguard, you spread the force of any impact and are less likely to suffer a concussion.
Contact Stella Maris Dental to find out more about our custom-made mouthguards. They come in a carry case and are individually named. Choose from 20 different colours, plain or striped, medium or heavyweight.
