Calgary dentist offers custom sports mouthguards to protect the smile during participating in high impact sports
Are you an athlete? Do you participate in any sports teams or high-impact activities such as CrossFit? Do you take the time to protect your smile from damage during these activities? If not, you need to take the time to learn more about the benefits of using sports mouthguards to protect your smile from damage. Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma of Calgary, AB is dedicated to helping patients in and around the area with their dental needs, including custom mouthguards.
How does a mouthguard work?
Sports mouthguards are highly recommended for anyone who participates in a sport or activity that may put the teeth, gums, and other soft tissues in the mouth at risk to injury. The mouth guard works as a barrier that absorbs trauma and diffuses the pressure throughout the mouth instead of the area of impact, decreasing the chances of a knocked-out tooth or concussion. By wearing custom mouthguards during these activities, patients are taking a step in the right direction for protecting the smile.
Why should I choose a mouth guard from a dentist instead of a drugstore purchase?
While there are many over-the-counter options for patients to choose from when it comes to sports mouthguards, they do not compare in fit and function in the way a custom mouthguard can. Ready-made guards rarely fit, and many patients don’t like to wear them because they are uncomfortable. Boil-and-bite mouthguards are better, but still not as protective as anything available from a dental office. Our mouthguards are:
- Properly fitted
- Strong and durable
- Easy to care for
- Simple to use
