Why Use a Sports Mouth Guard?
Impact on your mouth during a sports activity may lead to serious damage to your teeth and gums. At Hunter Dental in Markham, we provide mouth guards to athletes of all ages to help protect your mouth and teeth and minimize the risk of injury.
Custom Mouth Guards
At Hunter Dental, our Markham dentists take digital scans of your teeth so they can create a custom mouth guard for a comfortable and secure fit.
We want our patients to enjoy the activities they love without fearing damage to their teeth and mouth. The use of a sports guard can help relieve these concerns.
Should your mouth get hit during an activity, a mouth guard should absorb the impact more evenly. It acts as a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissues in your mouth, trying to prevent injuries such as chipped or broken teeth and cut lips or gums.
Custom mouth guards should be able to protect your teeth for many years with proper care and storage.
Keep Your Smile Safe
Patients who play contact sports, such as hockey and football, should have a custom mouth guard to protect their teeth. Even activities such as soccer, mountain biking, and gymnastics pose a risk that your face may come into contact with another person or object.
