Get the Protection You Need
If you or your child plays body-contact sports, a mouthguard is essential. High-impact sports like hockey, lacrosse, and rugby have plenty of opportunities for collisions that can knock out a tooth or two.
At Hill Top Dental Centre, we can mould custom mouthguards to provide the protection your mouth needs to keep your smile intact while on the ice or playing field. Visit us today to get started on a custom mouthguard.
Custom Fit for Enhanced Safety
Getting a custom mouthguard ensures that the bite and shape are tailored to your mouth, giving you enhanced protection over boil-and-bite guards you find at a sporting goods store. Standard mouthguards can be bulky and uncomfortable to wear during the game.
The team at Hill Top Dental Centre provides custom mouthguards that are only available through a dental provider—and you’ll notice improved comfort and fit when it’s made for your mouth.
Benefits of Custom Mouthguards
Taking a proactive approach to your oral health while playing sports has several benefits, one of which is preventing a hefty tooth-replacement bill down the line.
When we fit a custom mouthguard, we take an impression of all of your teeth, including the posterior teeth, for a unique fit. When your mouthguard hugs all your teeth perfectly, there’s less movement during wear.
Enhanced Protection from Sports-Related Injuries
Having a mouthguard that fits snugly in your mouth reduces movement upon impact. In addition, they act as shock absorbers between the jaws and help reduce concussion as a result.
More Confident Playing
Sports mouthguards can provide a psychological advantage to athletes. With the proper protection in place, findings suggest that athletes feel more confident in the game.
Prevent Hefty Dental Bills
Would you rather be proactive and invest in a custom mouthguard or foot a dental bill for a tooth replacement when it’s needed. Getting set up with a custom mouthguard can save you in the long run. Mouthguards protect the soft tissues in the mouth from bruising and lacerations while also preventing tooth fractures and dislocations. A mouthguard redistributes the forces of impact, acting like a cushion.
