Professionally made to protect your teeth during Contact Sports:

Mouthguards are a vital part of your equipment in all contacts sports. They are made from a soft plastic or laminated material, and are used to protect the hard and soft tissues of your mouth from trauma. Although not exhaustive, the types of injury that can occur are teeth being knocked out and/or chipped, fractured crowns or bridges, damage to teeth roots, and concussion.

Many studies have been done that show that a high proportion of injuries in contact sports are due to a mouthguard not being worn, or of the mouthguard being of a poor quality generic type. Only a professionally made custom-moulded mouthguard will give you or your child the best protection from a dental injury while participation in contact sports.
