Enjoy custom-made sports mouthguards with Calgary, AB, dentist
High impact sports such as soccer and football can significantly increase an individual’s risk of damage to the smile. That is why Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma and her team at Lake Chaparral Dental Care in Calgary, AB, encourage patients to consider the creation of a custom-made sports mouthguard. Mouthguards are used in many sports activities to keep from damaging the soft tissues, bone, or teeth in the mouth. In many situations, participation in any of these activities requires sports mouthguards to be used during active play.
What is a sports mouthguard?
A sports mouthguard is an oral appliance that is custom-made at Lake Chaparral Dental Care for patients to wear during certain activities to protect their smiles from damage. This includes trauma to the mouth, which might result in:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Knocked-out teeth
- Damage to the soft tissues of the mouth
- Damage to orthodontic work
When should I have a sports mouthguard made?
At Lake Chaparral Dental Care, we strongly encourage our patients to have a custom mouthguard made before participating in high impact sports. We can make sure that the mouthguard fits properly, to provide the best possible protection of the smile. Patients come into our office and have impressions made of their upper and lower dental arch. These impressions are then used by our laboratory to create a mouthguard that fits precisely over the patient’s teeth and gums. A custom-made sports mouthguard will fit and function better than anything available over-the-counter at the local drugstores, ensuring the best care possible.
