Mouthguards & Nightguards Can Help Protect Your Teeth
Protective devices that are worn over the teeth to protect from injury and wear, professional sports mouthguards and nightguards are custom-made, comfortable, and highly durable. At Bloor Dental Clinic in Toronto, we’re proud to provide our patients with these devices and encourage you to contact us today to learn more about how one or both can benefit your smile!
How can a professional sports mouthguard protect my smile?
Mouthguards are often used by athletes to protect their teeth, gums, and jaws from physical contact. They can help reduce the risk of oral and head injury if you play a contact sport or engage in any type of physical activity that could harm your smile.
How can a professional nightguard protect my smile?
Nightguards are similar to sports mouthguards in that they’re custom-made and protect your teeth from grinding and clenching that can happen while you sleep. These devices can help reduce the risk of tooth wear, gum recession, and headaches by helping create a barrier between your teeth.
What are the main differences between professional and over-the-counter options?
Professional devices are made to fit your unique dental structure, providing a comfortable and secure fit. The material they’re made of is also more durable than over-the-counter options, which break down more quickly.
Who can benefit from a professional nightguard and/or a sports mouthguard?
Anyone who participates in contact sports or suffers from bruxism (grinding of teeth at night) should consider wearing a mouthguard or nightguard. It is especially important for young children and adolescents to wear appropriate protective gear while playing physical sports.
