- Mouth Guards
A mouthguard is a specially made, rubber-like cover, which fits exactly over your teeth and gums, cushioning them and protecting them from damage during sport.
It is important to wear a professionally made mouthguard whenever you play any sport that involves physical contact or moving objects, to significantly reduce the risk of dental injury. These offer the best protection and level of comfort for your mouth.
Off the shelf pre-formed mouth guards offer little effective protection and are very uncomfortable, and may even hinder your sporting performance.
Sports such as GAA, Rugby, Hockey and Boxing have insisted on the compulsory wearing of a mouthguardin order to participate.
Here at Navan Dental, we can provide you with a specially made personalisedmouthguard. Our mouthguards can be made in your club or school colours if you so wish. We can also have your name inscribed on them so that you are less likely to ever lose it!
In 2014, Navan Dental became the official dental provider to Navan RFC, something that we are immensely proud of. We have provided many mouthguards to their players (both seniors and juniors), and in addition, have offered advice to their players about how to manage dental injuries on the sport’s field should the need arise.
If you would be interested in us attending your club/school training sessions, to provide similar bespoke mouthguards at heavily discounted rates, or if you would like one of our dentists to visit your club or school to discuss how to manage dental trauma, then please call our reception team on 046 9021203 to discuss the arrangements.
