LET’S TALK ABOUT TWO THINGS. First, the importance of wearing a mouthguard if you (or someone you care for) is involved in just about any type of sport. And second, the importance of maintaining that mouthguard.

Mouthguards or gumshields, provide far more value than simply protecting teeth. They also help prevent head injuries. How? Mouthguards act as a “shock absorber” to help cushion the head against sports-related concussions. Young or old athlete, and regardless of the sport, they just make sense.

No Matter What Your Level Of Sport

3 Ways To Keep Your Mouthguard In Great Condition

1. Clean It Frequently

  • Rinse it with cool water after every use.
  • Gently brush it occasionally with toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Avoid hot water as it may change the fit.
  • For a deep cleaning, try denture cleaner.

2. Be Responsible

  • Don’t chew on your mouthguard.
  • Keep it in a hard, protective container that allows for air flow.
  • Don’t leave it in direct sunlight or in a hot car. This can distort the guard.

3. Get It Checked Regularly

  • Bring your mouthguard with you when you visit us.
  • We’ll make sure it fits correctly and protects your smile.

If you wear braces or have a protruding jaw, talk to us about the best options.

Whilst we are doing check ups and routine dentistry we have long waiting times for appointments.

We also run a telephone emergency service during normal working hours. Out of hours advice is available via NHS Direct on 111.
