Protect your teeth with our custom-made dental mouth guards, available from £150.
What are Dental Mouth Guards?
Dental mouth guards are devices worn over your teeth to protect them from injury and prevent more wear on the surface of the teeth. Also known as bite raisers, a bite guard, and a dental night guard, the mouth guards work to relax the jaws, protecting them from joint problems that could eventually occur.
Suitable for helping to prevent excessive teeth grinding (also known as bruxism), our dental mouth guards even out the pressure across your jaw and create a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth to protect them from further damage.

How to Treat Bruxism
Bruxism affects over 80% of the population at some point in life, and it can be debilitating for many sufferers. Despite being prevalent and on the rise in the UK, bruxism is often overlooked and misdiagnosed. Bruxism can cause serious and painful side effects, including headaches, migraines, and jaw pain.
If you believe you are suffering from bruxism, get in touch with our team today for a consultation, and check out our range of treatments below.
Mouth Guards and Mouth Splints
If you grind your teeth while you are sleeping, it may be recommended that you wear a mouth guard or mouth splint at night. Working to even out the pressure across the jaw bone, mouth guards or splints create a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth, protecting them from further damage.
Mouth guards are similar to those used in sports such as rugby or boxing. Made of rubber or plastic, they can be custom-made by your dentist to fit your mouth. While a cheaper option, mouth guards usually last for less than a year.
Mouth splints are made from harder plastic, and designed to fit precisely over your upper and lower teeth. They are just as effective as mouth guards in reducing symptoms of bruxism, however mouth splints can last for several years.
Sleep Clench Inhibitor (SCi & SCi+)
Previously known as NTI-tss, the SCi is an FDA-approved treatment for bruxism and medically diagnosed migraines. With excellent clinical results, the SCi and SCi+ are proven to relieve patient symptoms.
The SCi is designed to be made during an appointment, though we also have the SCi+ which is lab-made. Designed to be quick and effective, the SCi typically takes 10-15 minutes to be made and correctly fitted, and has excellent patient acceptance and compliance with scientifically proven efficacy.
Get in touch with us today to learn more about the SCi.

I was having a lot of trouble with an old filling and my friend recommended Beaulieu Dental. She said they were ‘amazing’ which I very much doubted as no dentist could be that good in my opinion. However after booking in and having my treatment the following week, not only was it by far the most relaxing dental visit I have ever had, there was zero pain and my tooth is fixed! The surgery is beautiful and clean too, all the staff are lovely and I liked the fact I could park right outside. So yes, Beaulieu Dental is amazing!
My father in law recently used the services of this dentist, and has not stopped singing their praises since….so I thought I better make mention of the excellent service e received….….so well done…Beaulieu Dental provides a very professional and friendly service……….WOW…!!
I was really nervous about going to see a dentist after a bad experience, but I needn’t have worried. The staff at Beaulieu Dental are very kind and caring. From when you walk in the door and meet the receptionist to seeing the dentist, Dr Saeed and his assistant there is a caring welcome. Dr Saeed explains everything in an understandable way and puts you at ease.
I would certainly recommend Beaulieu Dental and it’s staff to everyone.
I have just returned for a checkup and also seen the hygienist,Laura, and am still very pleased with the service provided. Well done Beaulieu Dental you provide an excellent standard of care.
Fantastic service at Beaulieu Dental. Highly recommended. Our family has consistently received excellent dental care from Dr. Saeed. Also Laura is a fantastic hygienist, she is very knowledgable and explains things well. Very happy with the cost, treatment and result. Thank You!
I could not recommend this practice more highly. I was looking for an emergency practice on a Sunday evening as I was in agonising pain so phoned up and Dr Saeed opened up the surgery and extracted my tooth all within the hour.
Dr Saeed put me at ease straight away and is clearly very passionate about his work, identifying my problem straight away giving me a few options to choose from and ultimately ending my pain.
The practice is incredibly clean, theres plenty of parking directly outside and the pricing I thought was perfectly fair for the standard of work maintained at this practice. Definitely gained a new client out of me thats for sure
I highly recommend Beaulieu Dental Practice. Dr Saeed and his team are very welcoming and offer plenty of reassurance for nervous patients like myself. I received an excellent level of care and I can say Dr Saeed is the best dentist I have ever been to! I’ve had a very positive experience and will be continuing my treatment at Beaulieu Dental . Thank you 🙂
Excellence in dentistry. I’ve heard of pain getting teeth cleaned. I had teeth cleaned and a filling and felt only a slight sore sensation as my mouth was numbed. Shut your eyes and the job is done.
The filling is white and looks so similar to my tooth it is invisible.
If you are frightened of the dentist, here is where you should come in my opinion. I was sweating through my palms before I came, but left with only a filling and no root canal or extractions.
It only cost me marginally more than an NHS dentist. 1000% worth it. This is the place to come before your teeth deteriorate and have them dealt with.
I hadn’t been to the dentist for 8 years! I had terrible tartar on my teeth and inflamed gums, I knew I had to do something about this and quick. I done some research and found Beaulieu Dental practice, and I was put at ease straight away, I was advised what needed to happened and advised my aftercare. I recommend this dental surgery , it’s clean, professional and very welcoming. I’m no longer afraid of dentists which is huge for me. Thank you Beaulieu Dental!
Having developed a high level of anxiety about visiting the dentist following previous painful and unpleasant experiences, I was hopeful but nervous about attending Beaulieu Dental for my root canal. The tooth in question had had so much work done I was convinced it would be past saving.
From the excellent customer care to the confident and calming presence of the dentist, I have had an outstanding experience throughout. My tooth was painlessly, calmly and swiftly saved and I have had no problems since. I can’t imagine ever going to a different dentist nowEmily
If you have a fixed brace, you can have a custom-made mouth guard that is designed to fit over the top of the brace. Get in touch with our dentists to find out more.
To ensure your mouth guard lasts as long as possible and keeps your mouth healthy, it is important that you are taking good care of your mouth guard. To keep it clean:
- Clean your mouth guard after every use, using toothpaste and a toothbrush, or washing it in cool, soapy water. This will remove any lingering bacteria.
- Store your mouth guard in a protective case that allows for ventilation. This will let it dry out completely and help prevent bacteria from growing on the surface.
Unlike store-bought mouth guards which can change shape and degrade within a few months, a custom-made mouth guard can last for several years depending on care.
Mouth guards worn by children may need replacing more regularly as their mouths continue to grow.
