Sports Mouth Guards At Your Calgary Dental Clinic

Sports Guards

Why Do I Need A Sports Mouth Guard?

Your teeth are precious. It’s important to take special care to protect your teeth when you are playing sports or partaking in any vigorous physical activity. A sports mouth guard from your East Hills Dental Clinic in Calgary can help to protect your teeth and gums! During contact sports and non-contact sports, there are many risks and dangers that can arise, putting your smile in jeopardy. The best way to ensure that all of your teeth stay intact is with a custom sports mouth guard.

 

The majority of sports injuries are dental injuries. If you fall, your teeth can potentially knock together, crack, chip, or split. A sports mouth guard can help protect your teeth and absorb shock from impact. Not only do sports mouth guards protect your teeth from injury, but they also have many other benefits. Sports mouth guards prevent teeth clenching and teeth grinding, both of which can cause irreversible damage to your teeth.

 

The best part about East Hills Dental Clinic sports guards is that we can customize them to fit your teeth perfectly. Store-bought mouth guards do not provide the same level of customization and, therefore, do not have the same level of guaranteed protection. When we create a custom sports mouth guard for you, we can ensure that it’ll fit just right and work when you need it to. All you need to do is reserve your appointment!

How To Take Care Of Your Custom Mouth Guard

When caring for your mouth guard, there are a couple things to keep in mind. Before and after each use of your mouth guard, rinse it thoroughly with cool water and a bit of soap. You can even brush your mouth guard lightly with some toothpaste and a toothbrush. Try your best to keep your mouth guard out of warm places, such as in direct sunlight or in hot water. Also, be sure to keep your custom mouth guard in a durable container that has ventilation for easy breathability (to avoid odor or bacteria build-up). It’s normal for mouth guards to need replacement after a lot of use. If you notice wear and tear on your mouth guard, it’s best to replace it with a new one that works better. This way, your smile will always be protected.
