NW Calgary Sports Mouthguard

Do You or Your Children Play Sports? Protect Your Mouth with a Sports Mouth Guard!

 16TH AVENUE DENTAL is pleased to offer NW Calgary Sports Mouthguards! Approximately 39% of all dental injuries occur while playing sports and of those, 75% of sports-related dental injuries affect at least one of the most visible teeth in our smile. Our goal is to help keep your teeth protected, even while playing the sports you love.

Why Do I Need to Wear a Sports Mouthguard?

A Sports Mouthguard should be considered a vital piece of equipment, regardless of the sport. Most dental injuries occur when participating in contact sports, such as football, rugby, hockey, boxing, and basketball. Activities, including skateboarding, soccer, squash, gymnastics, and Taekwondo also pose a risk to your dental health.

At 16TH AVENUE DENTAL, we recommend that anyone who participates in athletic activities should protect his or her teeth with high quality, proper fitting sports mouthguard.

Protect Your Teeth From Dental Injury

Sports mouthguards are designed to fit over your top teeth to redistribute the force of impact.  A mouthguard also provides a barrier between your teeth and the soft tissue in and around your mouth. Many studies have shown that mouthguards help prevent chipped or broken teeth and protect against cuts to lips, gums, and other soft tissue in the mouth area.

Store Bought or Custom Made?

Dr. My Le recommends custom made Sports Mouthguards because of their superior fit when compared to over-the-counter mouthguards. Custom made Sports Mouthguards are also much thinner and more comfortable to wear, which means there is more compliance to wear the mouthguard. Store bought mouthguards are often bulky and very uncomfortable to wear.
