Mouth & Sports Guards

Mouth injuries often occur while playing sports and can happen to children or adults. Even the simplest fall or contact can jar loose, chip or otherwise damage teeth and create a need for more costly dental care to replace missing tooth tissue.

To protect yourself and other sports enthusiasts in your family, it is best to have a discussion with your Weybridge dentist about the need for a mouth or sports guard before engaging in any contact sports. Your dentist will be able to recommend mouth guard options that fit perfectly and protect completely.


Inexpensive sports guards, known as “boil and bites”, can be purchased from sports shops or chemists and, while the low cost of these options may seem attractive, the protection offered is also likely to be low quality. The poor fit usually found with these guards can allow them to move around in the mouth, causing a gag reflex and greatly reducing your protection against tooth and jaw damage.

There are important reasons to safeguard your teeth, tongue, gums and jaw with a custom made mouth guard:

  • Protection from broken teeth, biting through the tongue, cheek lacerations and even breaking of the jaw bone
  • Avoiding long term financial costs for sports-related mouth injuries
  • Preventing psychological trauma from sports-related mouth injuries
  • Reducing the potential for concussion
