Night Guards

At Cosmetic Denture Clinic, we custom make night guards to the highest of quality standards. All night guards are made in our fully equipped and modernised clinic in Carlow.


Night guards are the best preventive treatment when it comes to teeth grinding and clenching. Grinding or clenching your teeth while sleeping is a very common problem and can be treated quite easily, but very few people actually seek treatment for it. Not only does this have a major impact on the health and condition of your teeth but it can cause other issues such as jaw pain and headaches. There are many reasons why you may be grinding your teeth. The most likely cause is mal-positioned teeth, defective fillings, or defective crowns and bridges which alter your bite pattern, causing you to grind your teeth while searching for a suitable resting place. Night guards act as a cushion between you upper and lower teeth, minimising the impact of the grinding and clenching. 


At Cosmetic Denture Clinic each night guard is custom produced to fit your teeth exactly. While night guards are only for your upper teeth, we take impressions of both the upper and lower teeth to get an accurate reading of your teeth fit together. This means that our night guards are 1000% accurate and fit your teeth perfectly.

Gum Shields

The dental technicians here at Cosmetic Denture Clinic make custom made gum shields in our specialised and fully fitted Carlow clinic. All provide gum shields for all kinds of contact sports.


A gum shield, also commonly referred to as a mouth guard, is a rubber-like, protective cover made to fit over your teeth and gums protecting them from damage during sport. Many sports, such as the GAA, Rugby, and Boxing, have now made it compulsory to wear gum shields at all times when training and competing. While there are many pre-formed gum shields available in shops, these offer little protection and are often very uncomfortable in the mouth. A professionally made gum shield is custom made to fit your teeth and gums perfectly, cushioning them completely and greatly reducing the risk of dental injury. Dental mouth guards are made to fit comfortably in your mouth while giving you the very best level of protection available.


Each gum shield produced by Cosmetic Denture Clinic is custom made. We take impressions of your teeth and gums to get an exact match. Our gum shields are made from the highest quality materials, are comfortable to wear, and protect you from dental injury during sport.
