A gum shield (or mouth guard) is a protective appliance or device that is used to cover the teeth and gums.

They are commonly worn by sports athletes to protect our teeth & gums from knocks and impacts. It also helps to absorb shocks between the upper and lower teeth, reducing the risk of a concussion.

Which sports pose a higher risk of tooth damage?

Any contact sport is accompanied by a high risk of tooth damage or loss.

Generally, the sports with the highest tooth damage risks are:

  • Martial arts
  • Rugby
  • Field hockey

If you participate in a contact sport, it is highly recommended you get a reliable set of gum shields to wear during your activity.

Why should I purchase a gum shield from a dentist practice?

Although there many gum shields available over the counter, these standard shields cannot provide the same level of protection that a bespoke gum shield can.

If you are a representative for a school or sports team, speak to us about putting creating special mouthguards with your logo and colours.

Contact us on 01733 551 534 to invest in your custom gum shield and the protection of your teeth.
