Your teeth are extremely important to the team of dental professionals at Uptowne Dental Centre in Toronto. Our dentists offer dental appliances such as sports guards and mouth guards to safeguard your teeth. If you are interested in getting a custom-made mouth or sports guard contact Uptowne Dental Centre today to learn more.
At Uptowne Dental Centre, we are always on the lookout for symptoms that can lead to TMJ disorders, such as teeth grinding, clenching or wear.
Over time, grinding or clenching can wear away your enamel and can lead to disorders like decay, sensitivity, and even cracks to your teeth and damage to the jaw joints.
To prevent the disorders that result from grinding and clenching, we recommend mouth guards to protect your teeth, mouth and jaw.
Sports guards and mouth guards can either be store bought or custom made and fitted by your dentist.
The following are some of the main benefits of having your sports guard or mouth guards custom made to fit the unique shape of your mouth:
- More comfortable
- Better fit
- Maximum protection
- Correct size
Any sport can pose a risk of injury to the mouth and teeth. A sports injury can result in broken teeth or damage to the soft tissues of your mouth such as your tongue and gums.
At Uptowne Dental Centre, we recommend that everyone, both young and old, wear a sports guard when engaging in sporting activities.
At Uptowne Dental Centre, we custom make sports guards to fit the unique shape of your mouth and teeth.
