Sports Mouth Guards
What Are Sports Guards and Mouth Guards?Sports guards, mouth guards and mouth protectors are different names for the same thing: a device worn over your teeth that protects them from blows to the face and head. Mouth guards are an important piece of athletic equipment for anyone participating in a sport that involves falls, body contact or flying equipment. This includes football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, skateboarding, gymnastics, mountain biking — any activity that might result in an injury to the mouth. Mouth guards typically cover the upper teeth, and are designed to protect against broken teeth, cut lips and other damage to your mouth. If you wear braces or other fixed dental appliances (such as a bridge) on your lower jaw, your dentist may suggest a mouth protector for these teeth as well. Sports Mouth Guards start at £50.00. We also offer a Same Day Urgent Service
Treatments for Dental Trauma
Everyday of the week we have at least one dentist who is experienced in the treatment of dental trauma. They are working at the surgery (not just on call!).
Being treated by an experience clinician is essential to the likely success of any treatment for trauma.
Whilst most trauma involves very little damage and can therefore be be easily corrected by a Bonded Tooth Coloured restoration we also treat some very serious trauma cases. We are seeing lots of cases of bicycle accidents recently.
We offer a full range of diagnostic Radiographic tools including CBCT scans.
Indeed we are the only practice in the area that offer this service
