A hit to the mouth during a sports activity can cause serious dental damage. Our Winnipeg dentists offer mouth guards to athletes of all ages to help you minimize the risk of injury and protect your mouth and teeth.
A sports mouth guard is a custom-made mouth guard that fits over your teeth and is worn during sports activities to protect them from any injury. Most often used in contact sports, like hockey and football, they're also a good idea for any sport where there's a chance that your face will come into contact with another person or object, like in soccer and gymnastics.
If you get hit in the mouth, a mouth guard acts like a cushion that absorbs the impact more evenly. It provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue in and around your mouth preventing injuries like chipped or broken teeth and cuts to lips and gums.
It is very important to have a mouth guard that fits properly. Our Winnipeg dentists will create a custom mouth guard to fit your teeth. By taking a digital scan of your teeth, your dentist will ensure a secure, comfortable fit.
With proper care and storage, your custom mouth guard will protect you for many years to come.
