Calgary Dentist Discusses Sports Mouthguards
Custom sports mouthguards are essential to protect your teeth when playing physical contact sports. At Inglewood Family Dental, we offer several styles of sports mouthguards that are customized to provide optimal protection and comfort. Watch this video by dedicated Calgary dentist Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh as he explains the importance of custom sports mouthguards for athletes.
A lot of times people come in, especially athletes, and they complain about teeth that are broken, chipped, or sensitive, and they want to know what they can do to help protect their teeth. A lot of times we discuss a sports guard or a mouth guard for them. They often want to know the benefits of having these mouth guards.
A mouthguard is a layer of plastic that goes over the top of your teeth and helps protect them from damage, from external or internal sources. Let’s say you get hit and your teeth smash against each other. Instead of smashing into each other, it’s now hitting the plastic instead, which makes it a lot less likely to cause damage to your teeth.
While the cost of a custom sports mouthguard may seem a lot more than the stock variety, you need to consider the costs that a custom mouthguard will prevent. Losing a tooth in a traumatic sports injury can cause irreparable harm and large emergency dental treatment fees to try to save your tooth.
