Are you an avid athlete? Do you enjoy playing a round of golf or a game of rugby? If this describes you, then you know all too well that mouth injuries are quite prevalent in sports. Protect yourself with a custom mouthguard from Redefine Dental.


Physical activity is a vital component to your overall health and wellbeing - which is why we believe so strongly in the importance of sport.

We also recognise the increased risk of injury, particularly to the mouth, for athletes and sports enthusiasts.

For this reason, we focus on preventing and minimising the damage of sports injuries as much as possible. A well-fitted mouth guard will absorb the shock of a blow to the face, which might otherwise lead to an injury.

Mouthguards are an important piece of protective equipment for anyone participating in a sport that involves falls, body contact or flying equipment, which includes soccer, rugby, cricket, hockey, skateboarding, gymnastics, and mountain biking.

Mouthguards mainly cover the upper teeth and are designed to shield you against cut lips, broken teeth, and other damage to your mouth. If you wear appliances such as braces, we may recommend a mouthguard for the bottom teeth as well.

First Appointment

We will examine your mouth and make an impression of your teeth, Next we will construct the mouthguard over a model of them. Finally, we will send it to the lab to have it manufactured.

Second Appointment

You will receive your custom made sports mouth guard. In addition, we will provide instructions on how to clean it, how to place the appliance, and how to take it out. At Redefine Dental, we create custom made mouthguards that provide a superior fit and offer the highest level of protection during sporting activities. Sports-related injuries to the mouth and jaw are some of the most common injuries received by athletes, and our goal is to prevent these injuries as much as possible to secure your smile.
