With warmer weather comes a lot of fun sports that you and your children love to play! We know you must be excited to enjoy the sun while playing your favourite sports, but it does come with some risks. At myORTHODONTIST, we want to help keep your smile safe, and ensure that no matter what the activity, your teeth and jaw are protected. Let’s take a look at why a mouthguard is important, and what we can do to help!
Why Are They Important?
Mouthguards are essential in preventing sports related injuries. In Canada, the estimated number of injuries attributed to sports can be as high as 39%. They are designed to minimize the risk of broken teeth and oral and facial injuries. When wearing a custom mouthguard, not only will you reduce the chances of fracturing your jaw, but you will also greatly reduce your chances of breaking a tooth, tooth fractures, chipped teeth, and more!
What Happens At A Mouthguard Consultation?
At our clinic, we take an impression of your smile to make sure your custom-made mouthguard fits your smile just right! After this, we send it off to our digital laboratory, and once completed you can conveniently pick it up at our clinic!
How We Can Help!
We love helping our community! Children and adults can be fitted for a custom mouthguard for only a $5 donation and all proceeds go towards supporting KidSport Calgary. This national non-profit organization provides financial support to local youth who don’t have the financial support to play sports. During your next visit, ask us how you can contribute to this amazing cause!
