Health and Safety

Pupils are advised that the wearing of a mouthguard can in some circumstances offer a measure of protection against mouth/jaw injury, and that a properly fitted mouthguard will probably offer the best protection. 

Where mouthguard’s have NOT been individually fitted by a dentist or dental technician, it is essential that any manufacturer’s instructions relating to the wearing of the mouthguard are strictly followed.

Whatever its origins a mouthguard must fulfil the following criteria:

It needs to fit comfortably but tightly

It needs to be easily removable

It should not impair breathing in any way

In the interests of oral hygiene, it should be made of a substance that can be effectively cleaned.
