Did you know that traumatic sports injuries are among the leading causes of knocked out teeth? If you or your child participates in any type of contact sport, it’s important to ensure that their head, including their mouth is protected properly from injury. At Harvest Hills Dental Care, we offer patients in East Gwillimbury, and Newmarket, ON with high quality, custom sports mouth guards to dramatically reduce the risk of damage to the face and mouth.
Mouthguards are a plastic appliance that is worn over the teeth while individuals are participating in sports. Traumatic injury to the mouth can result in permanent damage that can be costly to restore. Wearing a sports mouthguard allows individuals to participate in sports while at the same time maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile.
There are many different types of mouthguards available. Below we’ll explain the differences.
Your custom mouthguard is made after a simple, quick visit in our office. We’ll take impressions and create a detailed model of the teeth to allow for custom fabrication of the mouthguard.
Once you take your mouthguard home, it’s important to take proper care of it in order to extend its life. When it’s not being worn, the mouthguard should be stored in its container to prevent it from being damaged. It should also be cleaned after each use with a toothbrush and toothpaste to eliminate bacteria and keep the appliance from smelling.
At Harvest Hills Dental Care, we are committed to protecting our patients’ mouth with sports mouthguards. Please give us a call us at (365) 659-1008 to book your appointment.
