Gum Shields

Glynneath Dental & Facial Aesthetics


Protecting your teeth against sports!

Gum shields are very important for contact sports such as rugby, hockey, martial arts and boxing. We construct custom made gum shields to reduce the chance of having an injury to your teeth. Gum shields work by absorbing and distributing the force of an impact. We take accurate moulds of your mouth to optimise this effect, these impressions are then sent away.

Our mouth shields are manufactured by a Bridge Dental Labs, that specialise in dental sports appliances.

We have a wide variety of  shields available. Here are some samples.

Gum Shields

Please remember the following:

• Mouth guards from sports shops will not fully protect your teeth as they have not been customise to your mouth. This could cause tooth loss if you had an injury.
• Please ensure if you do have mouth guards, that you do not eat or drink just before you put them in as you may cause dental decay. Its good to rinse them after every use under cold water.
• If your child has a mouth guard bring it to every examination appointment so the dentist can check it still fits correctly.
