Protect your Smile with a Sports or Night Guard
Custom made mouth guards can be used to protect your teeth when playing sports or, if you grind your teeth, at night to prevent damage.
At High Street Smile, your dentist can advise on and make a custom guard to comfortably fit and protect your teeth.
Just ask – we’d be delighted to answer your questions.
A specialist piece of kit essential for all contact sports.
Damaging your teeth while playing sports can be very traumatic. As well as being immediately painful, there are also the long term effects to think about. And losing a tooth or part of a tooth can impact on your pocket as well as your smile.
A custom made sports guard is a simple and highly effective injury prevention device that can reduce fractures of the jaw and loss of teeth, as well as often preventing concussion.
Which makes the cost (£45 for up to 2 colours) a very small price to pay for peace of mind.

If you often wake up with sore teeth or jaws, it’s likely that you’re grinding your teeth or clenching your jaws in your sleep.
Severe grinding can cause:
- Facial muscle pain
- Tightness and stiffness in the shoulders
- Pain and stiffness in the jaw joint and surrounding muscles
- Sleep disruption
- Worn teeth, short teeth, increased sensitivity and possible loss of teeth
- Difficulty in opening your mouth
Wearing a night guard can help to alleviate these symptoms and even prevent long term damage to your teeth.
The team at High Street Smile can advise on how best to treat night time grinding and make a custom night guard that fits comfortably into your mouth to reduce pain and headaches.
