What is a Mouth Guard?
Maintaining good oral health is more than just brushing and flossing. For those of us who play sports, who clench or grind our teeth, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures, and the health of our whole bodies.
Mouth guards offered at Smile Dental Centre are used to help protect the health of your oral cavity. We offer custom-made mouth guards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
If you get hit in the mouth during a sports activity, a custom-made mouth guard provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue of your mouth to protect your smile. This device helps prevent injuries such as fractured teeth and cut gums.
If you grind your teeth during sleep, a mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage. If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard will also help prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
