Mouthguards

When playing contact sport of any kind, a well-fitting mouthguard is crucial to protect your teeth and jaw from injury. Most tooth injury occurs during sport and damage to teeth or gums can require expensive treatment for the rest of your life.

At Murray Turner Dental Surgeons we are pleased to supply and fit Fortress Mouthguards. These mouthguards are custom-made to fit the mouth perfectly and are comfortable to wear, even under demanding conditions. They consist of a tough layer of acrylic which is finished with multiple layers of laminate to add strength and durability. Benefits include:

  • Protection of the lips, teeth and jaw from most collision-induced injury
  • Minimal interference to speaking and breathing even under demanding conditions
  • Multi-layered laminate for extra protection
  • Custom fit offers good retention and comfort

Why not an over-the-counter mouthguard?

Over-the-counter mouthguards are often ineffective as they do not accurately match the player’s dentition. They are bulky and often cause discomfort or make it difficult for the player to breathe properly.

Over-the-counter mouthguards can be especially unsuitable for children who have erupting teeth, as there is little allowance for tooth growth during the sports season.
