Mouthguards are made from a plastic material called Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA). EVA is strong and tough, and can be easily moulded to fit precisely over your teeth and gums.
Mouthguards are the most effective protective pieces of equipment, to help prevent injury to the mouth – protecting the teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue. A mouthguard does not only protect your mouth, it can also cushion blows to the mouth or jaw, thereby preventing damage to the jaw, neck or brain.
A dentist will take special impressions of your mouth, in order to create a guard that perfectly fits your mouth, teeth and gums, providing the ultimate protection. The procedure is very simple; your dentist will take moulds of your teeth, both upper and lower. They will be sent to the dental laboratory where our technician will then produce your custom made guard.
Your sports mouth guard will need replacing over time. Just bring it along to your check-ups and your dentist will inspect it for wear and tear.
