Protect Your Smile With Sports Guards & Nightguards
At Cedarbrae Dental in Scarborough, our experienced staff has seen the protective benefits of sports guards and nightguards time and time again, and we’d love to create a custom-made guard that will protect your smile.
How are sports guards and nightguards made at Cedarbrae Dental?
After we take a mold of your mouth, our lab team will create a personalized sports guard or nightguard for either the upper or lower teeth that will provide durable, dependable, and comfortable protection while you engage in sporting activities or when you sleep. Once complete, we’ll check your guard’s fit and make fine adjustments if necessary.
What benefits do sports guards and nightguards provide?
Sports guards provide protection not just from sports-related dental injuries, but they can also help prevent more serious traumas, including jaw fractures, concussions, and neck injuries that can happen during contact sports.
Nightguards protect a patient’s teeth while they sleep and simultaneously reduce jaw pain and headaches that are often associated with bruxism.
Who is a candidate for these oral appliances?
Patients who participate in a variety of sporting activities, such as basketball, volleyball, soccer, football, hockey, baseball, and more should consider using a protective sports guard to prevent dental injuries. Those who know or suspect that they grind or clench while sleeping should wear a nightguard to avoid chipping and wearing down their teeth.
