Defending Oakville, ON smiles with custom fit mouthguards
posted by Burloak Centre Dentistry
A 2013 report by CBC News indicated that 1,239,000 Canadians aged 15 and older play ice hockey, and the sport is second only to golf for adults. Part of the appeal stems from hockey’s nickname, “the fastest game on earth.” The action is non-stop, which leads to bumps, bangs, and bruises from ice, sticks, skate blades, and pucks. Despite protective face masks, hockey is notorious for dental injuries. A Custom fit sports mouthguard from Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville, ON can save smiles.
Reasons to wear a mouthguard
Most teams, from Mini Mites to Seniors require mouthguards.
The smallest piece of equipment, easy to insert and wear, can prevent big injuries.
A mouthguard that fits correctly nearly eliminates risk of tooth loss, and minimizes breakage. It lessens the chance of jaw fractures, and lacerations to the lips, tongue, and soft tissues.
Mouthguards may absorb enough force to reduce risk of concussion.
Why choose custom fit?
In most cases, complaints of athletes are the result of mouthguards that fit poorly. Off the shelf or boil-and-bite mouthguards are economical, but they provide little protection and are uncomfortable to wear.
Burloak Centre Dentistry offers a sensible solution – custom ProForm sports mouthguards made for the individual patient with a fit that is snug and secure. Players can communicate clearly and breathe easily wearing these mouthguards. Most importantly, they stay in place to provide effective protection against oral injuries.
A custom sports mouthguard can only protect the athlete if it fits properly and is used. Regardless of your sport, custom fit ProForm sports mouthguards from Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville, ON are a winning solution. Call 905-581-4436 to learn more.
