Mouth Guards for Sports & Sleep
Custom mouth guards from Ottawa Dentistry are oral appliances that can help protect your oral health during sports or while you sleep.
What is a Mouth Guard?
A mouth guard is a custom-made tray that fits over your teeth. It can be worn during sports activities to protect your teeth from trauma, or during sleep to protect them from the effects of grinding and clenching.
Custom mouth guards from our dental office can help protect your teeth and prevent any future dental issues.
Your dentist will create a custom mouth guard to fit your teeth exactly using dental impressions to ensure a secure, comfortable fit. With the proper care and storage, your custom mouth guard can protect you for years to come.
Mouth Guards for Sports
If you get hit in the mouth during a high-impact activity, a mouth guard will absorb the impact more evenly.
It provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissues of your mouth.
Mouth Guards for Sleep
If you grind your teeth during sleep, a mouth guard will act as a barrier to help protect the teeth from damage.
If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard will help prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
