A sports mouth guard is a dental appliance used to lower the risk of oral injuries during physical activities, including contact sports. Without a mouth guard, injuries that could occur include chipped or broken teeth, damage to the tooth's root, broken crowns, fractured jaws, and concussion. For this reason, every athlete should be fitted with a mouth guard. We at Harborn Dental understand its importance and offer you custom-fitted mouth guards in Mississauga.
There are many options available such as stock mouth guards or the boil-and-bite variety of mouth guards, which can be purchased at your local sports store. However, the safest and most effective option are the custom-fitted mouth guards in Mississauga made by our dental professional at Harborn Dental. Our professional makes an impression of your teeth and uses it as a mould to create the custom-fitted mouth guard. It allows the mouth guard to cover all the teeth and stay firmly in place, offering maximum protection against injury.
It is important that you keep your mouth guard clean to prevent any bacteria build up and to make it last longer. It is extremely simple to take care of your mouth guard.
All you need to do is follow these simple steps:
Rinse it regularly with water before and after each use.
Store it in a perforated container.
Keep it away from extreme temperature extremes.
Get it checked regularly by your dentist.
