At Tower Dental Clinic in Calgary, our dentists may recommend a custom mouth guard to help protect your teeth from damage during sports activities or from teeth grinding during sleep.Request Appointment
A mouth guard is a custom-made dental appliance that is worn over the teeth.
Our dentists may recommend that you wear a mouth guard during sports to protect your teeth from trauma, or at night to prevent teeth grinding (known as bruxism) and Jaw Muscle Dysfunction (TMD).
Wearing a sports guard is recommended for anyone who participates in sporting activities that put their teeth, mouth, or jaw at risk of coming into contact with another person or object.
Custom-made sports guards act as a protective barrier between your teeth and anything that might cause impact. Wearing a sports guard can help to prevent dental injuries such as cut gums and lost or broken teeth.
