How to Order Mouthguards




Ashburton Sports Mouthguards

If you’ve ever participated in a contact sport, it’s likely that your jaw or mouth has taken a hit. Whether you play football, volleyball, basketball, hockey, soccer, rugby, lacrosse or participate in other activities, a mouthguard from Cambridge Dental can protect you from damage and injury. A mouthguard is created from ethylene vinyl acetate, a plastic that’s tough, strong and can be precisely moulded for a comfortable, snug fit over gums and teeth. It doesn’t just protect your mouth, — it cushions your jaw, neck and even brain while protecting lips, teeth, cheeks and tongue.

The Procedure for a Mouthguard

We’ll start by taking impressions of your mouth to create a mouthguard with a perfect fit. This simple process involves taking impressions of your upper jaw. They’re then sent to our local dental laboratory, where an experienced technician will custom-create your mouthguard. You may need to replace your mouthguard over time as it wears. To determine if you require a new one, you can just bring it along to your routine preventative care appointment and we will check it for you. Read our Mouthguard FAQ.
