Mouth Guards

Mouthguards can prevent serious injuries such as concussions, incidents of unconsciousness, jaw fractures and neck injuries by helping to avoid damage to jaw joints. Mouthguards are also designed to move the soft tissue in the oral cavity away from the hard teeth, preventing laceration and bruising of the lips and cheeks.

At Ashley Dental Centre, we make custom made mouth guards using our specialised laboratory. They are flexible appliances made out of plastic that can be worn during sports activities to protect your teeth from trauma. They can be made to any colour specification.

We can also make mouthguards which can help anyone who grinds or clenches their teeth, usually at night time. Without a mouthguard, teeth can become chipped and worn.

As a result, these teeth become unsightly and sometimes lose functionality. Left untreated they can cause more serious problems with the health of the teeth, ultimately resulting in loss of vitality and sometimes even loss of the tooth.
