Gum shields, mouthguards and sports guards are all different names for the same thing: a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, gums and lips.

Many sports involve physical contact or moving objects, and can lead to damaged or lost teeth. It is important to wear a professionally made, custom-fitted mouth guard whether you are competing at school, club, provincial or national level.

They are a vital piece of equipment for anyone participating in contact sports such as rugby, GAA and martial arts.
By protecting your teeth now, hopefully they will last much longer than your sporting days!

An impression of your teeth will be taken, and from that your custom-fitted gum shield will be individually designed, and made, in a dental laboratory. This ensures the most comfortable fit and best overall protection.


  • Individually made to fit you.
  • Comfortable, easy to wear.
  • Easy to breathe and speak.
  • Stays securely in place.
  • Greater level of protection.
  • Can minimise the risk of concussion and broken jaws.
  • Can be made in many different colours/designs e.g. club colours.

You train your body to be stronger, and to try protecting yourself from serious injury, so why should you not also protect your smile?
