Are you looking to receive mouthguards? If you are an athlete or enjoy participating in sports, you must protect your mouth and teeth from injuries. Mouthguards help cushion your face from any impact, which minimizes the risk of damaging your teeth as well as other injuries to the tongue, mouth, lips, or jaw. They also provide help with TMD or teeth grinding while you sleep. If you are interested in receiving custom mouthguards in Saskatoon, contact our Saskatoon dental clinic today to request a consultation!

Sports Guards in Saskatoon

Sports guards are a type of mouthguard worn during contact sports like football, hockey, basketball, and more! If there is a chance of impact from another person or object, it is recommended that you receive a sports guard in Saskatoon.

Although you can buy mouthguards at your local store, it is recommended that you receive a custom sports guard to ensure maximum protection. Custom sports guards are made to fit your mouth precisely so that they do not move around or fall out of your mouth.

Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them off to a dental laboratory, where they will be fabricated. Once they are made, your dentist will check to see that they fit perfectly. At Mount Royal Dental, we offer sports guards! Contact our dentist in Saskatoon to request a consultation.

Night Guards in Saskatoon

Night guards, often known as bruxism appliances, are a device worn over the biting surface of your teeth. This device prevents teeth from touching while you sleep. The first step in creating a customized night guard is to take a mold of your teeth so that they can fit securely in your mouth. The following are health issues that can be prevented by receiving night guards in Saskatoon:

  • TMJ
  • Tooth pain
  • Headaches
  • Cracked tooth or crown
  • Tooth wear

If you experience any of these, contact our dental clinic today to request a consultation for mouthguards.

How to Care for Your Mouthguard

  • Do not use hot water to clean your mouth guard as it may alter the shape
  • Do not chew on your mouthguard
  • Do not remove your mouthguard with your tongue
  • Clean your mouthguard with a separate toothbrush and store it in its case when you are not using it
  • If there are cracks or visible signs of wear and tear, contact our dental clinic to receive a new guard
