Do You Need A Mouthguard?
Our dental office in Mississauga offers sports guards (mouthguard) and space maintainers to protect your child’s teeth.
Your child should be protected when it comes to their oral health. It’s important to check erupting teeth for decay and to not delay a child’s first visit to the dentist. When they arrive we can give their teeth a gentle cleaning and polishing, while checking teeth for abnormalities or misalignment.
What Are Mouthguards?
Mouthguards can prevent your child from tooth loss and other oral injuries. These flexible dental appliances are worn by athletes and can be custom-fitted for superior ease and comfort.

If you’ve enrolled your child or yourself into any kind of contact sport such as hockey, basketball or soccer, it’s important to have the right contact sport safety gear like a sports guard that will prevent teeth grinding and clenching. Adding unnecessary pressure on your teeth can cause major oral injuries.
Benefits of Custom Fitted Mouthguard
A professionally created mouthguard will protect teeth, gums, and bone structure by molding properly to your teeth. Over-the-counter sports guards may prevent clipped or damaged teeth but are not made to protect the important structures that support the teeth. While over-the-counter ones are available and offer protection, it will not compare to a custom fitted mouthguard made just for you!
