What types of sports mouth guards are available?
When you play a high contact sport that requires you to use a mouth guard, you might be wondering what types of sports mouth guards are available to you to keep your teeth safe and comfortable to allow you to perform your best. Watch this video by our Calgary dentist, Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh, to learn more about your options, and then give us a call for a consultation to get your custom sports mouth guards today.
There are multiple different types of sports mouth guards available. You can even get them at a store, boil them, and put them on yourself. However, the ones we make here are custom-made for your teeth.
If a patient is considering custom sports mouth guards, generally, we do an exam to make sure it’s an appropriate option for you. We take a digital scan that gets sent to a lab where they fabricate the sports guard based on your bite. We insert it and check your bite to make sure it fits and you’re comfortable with it. Then you’re off and you can use it while playing your high-contact sport.
If you are an athlete looking for options for custom sports mouth guards, please call us today for a consultation to learn more about the types of sports mouth guards available at our dental practice. We will be happy to provide you with all of your available options so you can make an informed decision about what type of mouthguard is best suited for your needs.
