ESSENTIAL PROTECTION FOR YOUR TEETH
You may feel your highly sensitive ninja skills make you totally invincible and unstoppable. Despite your prowess, we recommend that if you play any contact sports, whether you are young or old, a mouthguard is an inexpensive solution compared to the costs and pain of having to restore broken or fractured teeth.
The investment into custom mouthguard provides significantly better comfort and protection for your teeth, jaw and mouth versus an over the counter mouthguard.
We get very excited about Sports dentistry and about our mouthguard productions. We take pride in carefully designing mouthguards that fit correctly to ensure your safety during high impact sports.
We guarantee that our mouthguards will be durable and easy to clean, comfortable, fit well and not restrict speech or breathing.
Our custom mouthguards are made from scratch at our dental studio. When you come in we will take an impression of your teeth and when we are finished you will come in again to pick up your mouthguard and assess the fit.

Choosing the right mouthguard is simple. there are a few tips when looking for the perfect and most protective mouthguard. It should be comfortable, yet tight-fitting. It should allow normal breathing, speech and swallowing. The mouthguard should not cause gagging, be odourless and tasteless.
Lastly, it should be thick enough (4mm) to provide protection against impact. If you are involved in a sport or activity where there is risk of an injury to the face, you should protect your teeth with a properly fitted custom mouthguard.
Custom mouthguards are individually designed and made in our dental laboratory.
Firstly, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth. The mouthguard is then moulded over the model using a special material.
At the same time, we insert your custom graphics and images. This is then covered by another thin layer the special material. We then trim the mouthguard, ensuring that it is the perfect shape and size for your mouth.
Our mouthguards provide comfort, best fit and protection. Once we have completed your mouthguard another appointment is scheduled to check the fit and then the bite is created.
Depending on the request and whether we need to order new materials for your design, it usually takes us between 1-2 weeks.
Mouthguards are made of professional dental thermoplastic material and are based on the detailed mould taken of your mouth and teeth.
Please email all your desired images and graphics to our email [email protected]
Properly caring for your mouthguard can increase longevity of the product and ensure protection before each use. Here are some tips from us to you:
After each use of your mouthguard, rinse in soap and warm (not hot) water. Then allow to air-dry.
From time to time disinfect the mouthguard with a mouthwash.
Keep the mouthguard in the provided case when not in use, as it has ventilation.
Do not leave the mouthguard in direct sunlight, in a closed car or in the car’s glove box. Heat can damage it.
Ask your dentist to inspect your mouthguard at every dental check-up.
If the mouthguard is damaged, replace it as soon as possible.
Replace a child’s mouthguard every 12 to 18 months, even if it appears to be in good condition. Growth and new teeth can alter the fit.
An adults mouthguard should be replaced every several years or after dental treatment.
Typically, 1 year.
