Mouth Guards in SW Calgary

What Are Custom-Made Mouth Guards?

A variety of mouth guards are sold online and in stores. While these mouth guards are cheap and easy to purchase, they are not as effective in protecting your teeth as a customized one from your dentist. A custom-made mouth guard is created using a mould to ensure your teeth and gums are fully protected against any impact from a mouth injury. The mouth guard will evenly distribute the force of a hit and minimize the damage to your teeth. These mouth guards will also comfortably fit in your mouth and allow you to continue communicating with your team members.

What Sports Require a Mouth Guard?

If you engage in high-contact sports, you must invest in a quality mouth guard. Some sports that require mouth guards include:
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Gymnastics
  • Basketball
  • Wrestling

Protect Your Teeth with a Mouth Guard

Aside from sports, mouth guards are an effective way to protect your teeth if you grind your teeth at night. Teeth grinding can damage the enamel and lead to potential jaw pain and symptoms of TMJ. A mouth guard will act as a barrier to prevent you from grinding your teeth. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our dentist in SW Calgary to schedule a consultation. We are happy to provide quality mouth guards in SW Calgary to protect your smile.
