Sports Mouth Guard - Richmond Hill & Thornhill
One common reason why patients come to see us is to fix broken teeth sustained from sports injuries. Oral injuries are extremely common in sports. For this reason, it’s important to take proper measures to protect your mouth from getting damaged.
TS Dental offers professionally custom-made sports mouth guards to maximize your oral protection. Sports mouth guards are oral appliances that you wear over your teeth and gums to protect from possible trauma or damage.
Sports mouth guards should be worn when participating in sports or activities that involve physical contact or have moving objects (such as a ball or puck). By wearing a sports mouth guard, you’re protecting your mouth, neck, and even head from trauma that can be caused by a hit or blow.
Sports guards are suitable for a variety of sports including:
- And more...
Because we use the highest quality materials for your sports guards, they often last longer than the store-bought ones. The biggest difference between a home-kit sports guard and a professionally made sports guard is that home-kit types require you soak them in hot water and wearing them to create a bite impression. Unfortunately, home-kit sports guards are less comfortable to wear and are made with cheaper materials, meaning they have to replaced more often.
In comparison, our professional sports guards are custom-made according to your mouth’s measurements. This ensures the best fit and protection for your mouth. Our materials are also better quality allowing them to last for a longer period of time.
If you still have growing teeth, your sports mouth guard may have to replaced more frequently to stay up to date with the changing shape of your mouth.
Adults will likely have to replace their sports guard less frequently; however, this will vary from person to person. If you have a very active lifestyle you will have to replace your sports guard more often due to wear and tear. That’s why it’s a good idea to bring your sports mouth guard whenever you have a dental visit for a checkup.
