Get Sports Mouth Guards in Edmonton at Westmount Dental
Are you or your child involved in a contact sport of any kind? A sports mouth guard might be an important consideration to protect your teeth from being harmed in a sports-related accident. Read on to learn more about mouth guards and how to contact an Edmonton dentist if you need one.
Who Could Benefit from a Sports Mouth Guard?
If you’re involved in any type of contact sport, an athletic mouth guard is for you. Non-contact sports, such as skiing, skateboarding and cycling can result in injuries, too. If there’s any possibility that you could take a hit to the face, investing in sports mouth guard will save you both the pain and cost of an oral or dental sports injury.
Many professional sports mandate the use of mouth guards, including boxing, mixed martial arts, rugby, wrestling, ice hockey, and more.
Types of Mouth Guards
There are a number of different types of mouth guards available in stores. These mouth guards can vary in price, fit, durability and quality. The problem is that a mouth guard that does not fit properly simply does not work to protect your mouth. A mouth guard that is not durable will not be strong enough when you need it, and if it is of poor quality, it will need replacing more frequently.
The only way to enjoy the best protection is to have a custom mouth guard correctly fitted, of superior quality, and durable enough to last.
