Mouth Guards

Your Kanata dentist can help you protect your teeth from getting worn down or injured!

Mouth guards are resilient plastic appliances designed to cover over and encase a person’s teeth and the gums and bones that support them. The guard is meant to provide protection for the teeth, jaw, lips, cheeks and gums by absorbing and redistributing the impacting forces of teeth grinding or injuries to the area of the mouth. A custom-fitted mouth guard is designed specifically for you to perfectly fit your dental arch and provide the best protection. At the Hazeldean Family Dental Centre, your Kanata dentist always makes sure to design a mouth guard or sports guard specifically for you to perfectly fit your dental arch and provide the best protection.

Custom-fitted Night Guards by your Kanata Dentist

Night guards are extremely important if you tend to grind your teeth or clench your jaw while sleeping. This hard to control habit can cause other health problems, such as chronic headaches, earaches and jaw pain. The night guard absorbs the pressure caused by (delete-teeth) grinding, preventing your teeth from getting worn down. A night guard can also reduce the ability of the jaw muscles to clench by 70% thereby relieving the pressure which can lead to headaches & jaw pain.

Custom-fitted Sports Guards by your Kanata Dentist

Sports guards are resilient plastic appliances designed to cover (over ) and encase a person’s teeth and the gums and bones that support them. The guard is meant to provide protection for the teeth, jaw, lips, cheeks and gums by absorbing and redistributing the impacting forces of (teeth grinding or) injuries to the (area of the) mouth area. If worn correctly, they may also help in the prevention of concussions.

Sports guards are recommended to all our athlete patients (, or patients) who partake in contact sports, or to patients who partake in activities with a high risk of falls or contact to the head.
