Custom Made Mouthguards
If you play any contact sport, such as rugby, martial arts etc, it would be advisable to have a custom-made mouth guard to protect your teeth and braces during your treatment.
Repeated breakages of braces due to contact sports can lead to longer treatment times.
Since your teeth are moving during the treatment, it is quite difficult to find mouth guards that will be loose fitting enough to allow the teeth to move, but tight enough to stay in!
We can provide custom-made mouth guards that are specifically designed to fit around fixed braces and accommodate movement of the teeth. This will involve taking an impression of the teeth and braces and sending it to our orthodontic technician. All you have to do is chose the colour!
Ask your orthodontist for advice regarding mouthguards.
