Gum Shields

Prevention is better than cure! Protect your teeth with a custom fitted mouthguard for only €70.

We are great supporters of rugby here in Bridge View Dental, following the Irish team when they are playing, but also supporting local rugby at where we are a current jersey sponsor.

In order to protect the hard and soft tissues of the mouth during sports, it is vitally important to wear a gum shield. For Gaelic Football gum shields are now compulsory for all ages – male and female since January 2014. It is worth noting that without the use of a gum shield, dental injuries are not covered by GAA insurance.

Dentists recommend that custom-made gum shields are worn thus providing the most comfortable fit. If it is comfortable it is more likely to be worn and not kept in the kit-bag where it is of no use at all!

A simple impression is taken of the teeth and the gum shield will be ready in 3-4 working days. The gum shield can be made in a clear material or in the various club colours.
