Custom-fit sports and dental mouth guards/splints from a Swansea dentist
Mouthguards for contact sports
We recommend a sports mouthguard to anyone who plays any contact sports including rugby, hockey, boxing, cricket, squash, etc. to protect your teeth and bone from trauma fractures.
Get your sports mouthguard from your dentist for a better fit, for better protection, and a longer-lasting more durable product compared to off-the-shelf mouthguards.
Mouthguards for teeth grinding/clenching (Bruxism)
Some people involuntarily grind or clench their teeth, often at night or when stressed. This can cause discomfort in the jaw area, facial pain and headaches, and it can damage your teeth over time.
Sufferers of this condition may benefit from wearing a custom moulded mouth guard / mouth splint. These fit precisely over your teeth to protect them at night, and are made of harder plastic than sports guards.
You may find that your tooth clenching or grinding is caused by stress, in which case you may find this resource from mental health charity Mind useful: how to manage stress.
