Dental appliances offered by our North Vancouver dentist, such as sports mouth guards, are designed to protect your teeth and gums during physical activity.
Protect Your Smile While Playing to Win
Do you lead an active, sporting lifestyle? A custom Sports-flex mouthguard might be the right choice to protect your teeth.
What is a dental appliance?
Playing sports keeps us mentally and physically healthy, and is a great way for children, teens and adults to stay active. But we need to protect and preserve our teeth, gums and other tissues while we're on the rink, court or field.
Injuries to our mouth and teeth can occur at any age and the danger does not only lie in sports that are considered "high-impact" - injury and tooth loss can happen to anyone, any time.
That's why we recommend Sports-Flex Mouthguards to protect the face, head and neck while you play. These are custom-made by your dentist to fit your precise needs.
A sports mouth guard can protect your mouth while you play. Before you step on the court, field or rink, come see us - we can help you find a mouth guard that fits properly and preserves your smile.
Facts About Mouthguards
Did you know millions of teeth are lost ever year across North America due to injuries sustained during athletic activities?
We see many patients come into our office with various sports-related injuries. These can be costly and time-consuming to repair. That's why we say prevention is the best treatment.
Athletes, both amateur and professional, should wear a mouthguard while playing sports or participating in any activity where contact or falls can happen.
Benefits of a Sports Mouth Guard
The types of blows that impact our neck and jaw and cause concussions can also cause tooth loss.
A Sports-Flex sports mouth guard will protect your teeth and help to guard against damage that could happen to your teeth, mouth or soft tissues as a result of coming into contact with another player, a ball or anything else while you play.
For amateur and professional athletes of all ages, sports guards work well to prevent injury, tooth loss and the subsequent time in the dentist's office.
