If you want to enjoy the exhilarating experience of playing contact sports, it’s vital to keep teeth safe by wearing a protective mouthguard. This will minimise the chance of a sports-related injury to the mouth, teeth and jaw.
A removable brace can be taken out to accommodate a normal mouthguard, but if you wear a fixed brace, you will need to protect the appliance, as well as your teeth. We make mouthguards for people who don’t wear braces, but if you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment with a fixed brace, the mouthguard needs to be specially designed to fit over your brace.
For patients wearing fixed braces we recommend a custom-made mouthguard (clear or in a range of colours), priced from £70-£90.
Alternatively, we also stock the OPRO Self-Fit Ortho Mouthguard in a range of colours, at £25.
We can provide mouthguards for you after your treatment, price £80.
