The new school year has started and you may have new sports kit but have you thought about gumshields?

Gumshields help to protect the teeth and jaws from damage when playing contact sports. I have seen children in the last year who have suffered from broken teeth due to a blow received when playing sport. Although the teeth can be repaired the repair will require a lifetime of maintenance and in some cases there is a risk of tooth loss.

The best fitting and most protective gumshields are those which are custom made using an impression of your teeth. They can also be made in different colours!

If you or your child need a gumshield please contact us on 01423 540879.
