Gum Shields/Sports Dentistry
This is where gum shields come in. They are designed to offer protection for both your teeth and the gums, lips and cheeks that may also be at risk for harm.
When is a Mouth Guard recommended?
What is a Mouth Guard?
If you wear traditional fixed braces, then it’s essential that you have a sports mouth guard in place. Not only could a direct blow to the mouth or face cause abrasions and cuts on the soft tissues of your mouth, but it could lead to damage to the braces.
Why choose a Dental Protection?
What is the procedure for getting a mouth guard?
You’ll learn that your dentist offers the skills and tools that are needed to ensure that you get the right fit and the best protection benefits from your mouthguard.
What can a mouth guard protect against?
You may experience serious injuries to the gums, cheeks and lips. Teeth could be cracked or broken. Jaw fractures can also occur.
It’s important to remember fractures, chips and cracks to teeth can lead to decay in a short period of time. Even when you don’t notice that there is damage and you feel no pain, decay could be rapidly advancing. This could even lead to tooth loss.
What types of mouth guards are there?
A mouth guard that has been professionally made will offer you complete protection. During your appointment to the clinic, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth. The impression will be used by the laboratory to create your very own custom-fitting mouth guard.
