Mouth Guards in Steinbach

Custom Sports Mouth Guards

Sports guards are a device worn over your teeth that protects them from blows to the face and head. Sports guards are an important piece of athletic equipment for anyone participating in a sport that involves falls, body contact or flying equipment. Sports guards typically cover the upper teeth, and are designed to protect against broken teeth, cut lips and other damage to your mouth. If you wear braces or other fixed dental appliances (such as a bridge) on your lower jaw, your dentist may suggest a mouth protector for these teeth as well. Properly diagnosed, designed, and custom fabricated mouth guards are essential in the prevention of athletic oral/facial injuries. A properly fitted mouth guard must be protective, comfortable, resilient, tear resistant, odorless, tasteless, not bulky, cause minimal interference to speaking and breathing, and most importantly, have excellent retention, fit, and sufficient thickness in critical areas. We offer custom-fitted mouth guards are professionally made especially for you by your dentist. They offer a better fit and comfort which means your child is more likely to wear the guard. Your dentist can make a mouth guard that is a perfect fit for your mouth. If you are considering getting a Sports Guard, please contact your local Steinbach Dentist for more information.

Night Mouth Guards

Bruxism is a habit that is characterized by the grinding of teeth and is typically accompanied by the clenching of the jaw. Clenching refers to holding your jaw tightly closed, causing additional stress on your teeth. Your jaw should only be closed when eating, or chewing. An individual who bruxes (clenches) may experience such symptoms as jaw pain and headaches. It is common for patients to complain about experiencing headaches in the morning, after a long nigt of grinding or clenching their teeth. Many times it is your dentist or hygienist that will first see the wear patterns on your teeth and inform you about your grinding. Your Steinbach dentist can make a custom mouth guard that is durable yet comfortable to protect your teeth and fix your bruxism issues; and which wont interfere with your breathing.
