A proper, professionally made sports mouthguard, also known as a gumshield, doesn’t just protect your teeth, it also helps to prevent jaw dislocation and concussion.

Functions of a mouthguard:

  • Spreads the force of a direct blow around the dental arch and mouthguard

  • Prevent lacerations to gums, tongue and cheeks

  • Reduce the risk of bone fracture

  • Reduce the risk of tooth loss

  • Prevent concussion

Kathryn works with s4sdental to offer the Protex mouthguard which is designed to combine comfort and strength making it easy to wear so you can get your game face on!

Why choose a custom mouthguard over an off-the-shelf product? 
There are many mouthguards available, the cheapest of which are boil and bite ones bought in shops. These are poor-fitting and inhibit the wearer’s ability to talk clearly. They often encourage a gag reflex due to the guard’s ability to move around too easily.
