Mouth Guards

Tavistock, Ontario

Your Search For A Perfect Mouth Guard End Here!

Mouth guards can help treat a number of conditions, including teeth grinding and sleep apnea. They can also protect your mouth from sports-related injuries. If you require this dental appliance, Tavistock Family Dentistry can provide you with the perfect, custom-made mouth guard for your specific needs. 

Mouth guards can be store-bought or custom-made, although we highly recommend the later ones as they fit perfectly over your teeth. They also offer a very high level of comfort that the store-bought mouth guards cannot provide. 

Both children and adults can benefit from mouth guards, and we may recommend this dental appliance for a number of reasons. Most mouth guards fit over your upper teeth,, but depending on the situation, we may also recommend a mouth guard for your lower teeth.

When Do We Recommend Mouth Guards?

We may recommend a mouth guard if you grind or clench your teeth or have TMJ disorder or obstructive sleep apnea. Mouth guards are also ideal for people who play contact sports like football, basketball, hockey or boxing and for those who participate in activities with a high fall risk, like gymnastics or ice skating. 

Mouth guards will significantly reduce your risk of chipped and knocked-out teeth when playing contact sports and will help protect your smile. If you require a mouth guard because you grind your teeth, this appliance will help protect them from the effects of grinding and clenching, and you can wear your mouth guard day or night. 

Mouth guards can also benefit people with chronic snoring or obstructive sleep apnea because a custom appliance will shift and reposition your jaw to open your airway during sleep. 

Why Choose a Custom Mouth Guard?

Our dentist will create a mouth guard that fits your exact dental anatomy. They are specially designed to fit your teeth and are far more comfortable. Store-bought mouth guards are bulky and uncomfortable and will not sit right, but a custom-made mouth guard will provide you with the protection you need, and this is true regardless of whether you need this dental appliance for bruxism or sports-related trauma. 

Also, custom-made dental mouth guards last much longer and are a far better choice. 

We will start by taking dental impressions and will then send these impressions to a dental lab where a technician will fabricate a mouth guard that fits the anatomy of your teeth. Once it is ready, we will contact you and will make sure the fit is perfect when you come into our office. We will make sure you have all of the information you need, including proper care instructions, as this will ensure your appliance lasts several years. 

We ask our patients to bring their mouth guards with them to their dental appointments, as this will allow us to inspect the appliance for any cracks or signs of wear.
