Protect Smiles with Sports Mouthguards in Oakville ON
posted by Burloak Centre Dentistry
While high-impact sports such as football and hockey can pose a risk for injury, they can be especially traumatic on your teeth if you do not have proper protection. The dental team at Burloak Centre Dentistry offers sports mouthguards with a custom fit to protect smiles while our patients enjoy their favorite pastimes.
Benefits of a custom-fitted sports mouthguard
While there are a variety of over-the-counter options for protecting your teeth, none of them offer the same quality of fit and protection as a mouthguard your dentist can provide. They are designed to fit over your teeth and gums comfortably without hindering your breathing or your ability to speak. More importantly, they are much more likely to stay in place during an impact. The superior cushioning will reduce your risk for tooth injury or lacerations in the gums, and they can even spread the force of impact to reduce your risk of concussion after a hit to the jaw.
While the price may be a bit higher, they can last much longer than store-bought options. Our sports guards are crafted from high-quality plastic and acrylic that can last throughout the season while protecting you from tooth loss. The investment can save you from an injury that could easily cost 20 times what you pay for protection.
Creating your mouthguard
Our dental team will create a high-quality scan of your mouth using an iTero scanning device. This digital impression will be sent to a local dental lab, where they will use them to craft your mouthguard for a perfect fit. Once it is ready, we will educate you on the best ways to care for it to ensure it stays fully functional for as long as possible.
Tooth decay and gum disease can affect the fit of your mouthguard, as well as have a big impact on your smile. Our office can provide preventative care to keep your teeth clean and healthy and ensure your mouthguard will fit when you need it to.
