Every year thousands of children are treated for dental injuries, which could have been prevented, or the severity minimised, by wearing a protective mouthguard.


“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”


Everybody who participates in any form of contact sport like rugby, hockey, martial arts and netball should wear a mouthguard.

A mouthguard helps absorb the shock experienced by a blow to the face, which might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw. A heavy collision can result in chipped or broken teeth, internal damage to a tooth, tooth loss, injuries to the soft tissue of the mouth, and, in severe cases, concussion or a broken jaw. Injuries like these can lead to long and potentially expensive treatment to restore teeth and the mouth back to normal function and appearance.


Custom-fitted mouthguards

Everyone’s mouth is different. When it comes to your players’ comfort, it’s all about customization.


Custom-fitted mouthguards are made by your dentist, who takes an impression and creates a plaster model of your teeth. Custom-fitting allows your dentist to accurately assess your mouth and provide the best fitting mouthguard that is most appropriate for you.


A properly fitted mouthguard must be protective, comfortable, resilient, tear-resistant, odourless, tasteless, notbulky and cause minimal interference to speaking and breathing. It must have excellent retention, fit, and sufficient thickness in critical areas



Make mouthguards a part of your protective gear.
