Custom Sports Mouthguards
Our Ottawa, ON dentists offer custom sports mouthguards for patients of all ages. Custom fit mouthguards offer superior protection in comparison to over the counter options. Patients of all ages should consider getting a custom mouthguard if they participate in sports. Sports-related injuries are a leading cause of tooth loss, and mouthguards can help prevent that.
Teeth can not grow back; protecting them is an investment in your long-term oral health!
Many athletes can perform better when while wearing a custom designed mouthguard. Over-the-counter mouthguard options are often frustrating as they may slip or fall out while on the field. Custom fit sports mouthguards offer better protection with a more precise fit. Athletes are able to focus more on the game, not on keeping their mouthguard in place with a clenched jaw. Custom mouthguards make it possible to speak and drink normally while wearing the device and reduce the chances of your young athlete removing and misplacing it during games or practice.
Getting fit for your mouthguard is a painless and relatively quick procedure. Your Villanova Dental Studio dentist will begin by taking molds of your teeth. The molds will then be used to fabricate your personalized mouthguard that will fit securely in the mouth.
Mouthguards are a simple way to protect the investment you make in your, and your children’s oral health. Custom mouthguards can protect metal braces from becoming damaged or broken as well as protect the teeth and gums from becoming damaged by braces during sports.
