Accidents happen, which is why we are strong supporters of protecting your mouth
and teeth with custom-made mouthguards.

What Are Custom-made Mouthguards?

Custom-made mouthguards are designed to fit your mouth and protect your gums and teeth from injury during certain activities or sports. A mouthguard acts as a barrier to lessen the impact from elbows, knees, balls, or anything else that makes contact with your jaw or teeth during physical sports.
As opposed to ready-made, one-size-fits-all type mouthguards sold over the counter, custom-made mouthguards are professionally made to fit the exact shape of your mouth. Off-the-shelf, ready-made commercial mouthguards do not provide the same level of protection and are not as retentive or comfortable.

When Should I Wear a Mouthguard?

We recommend wearing a mouthguard for activities such as:

  • Hockey
  • Football
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Boxing
  • Any other contact sport or as recommended by your dentist

What is the Process for Constructing a Custom-made Mouthguard?

Your dentist will examine your teeth and either take impressions (moulds of your teeth) or a 3D computer scan. At a follow-up appointment, you will be fitted with your new mouthguard.
Future appointments may be needed to assess the fit, especially if there are any tooth movements in a growing mouth.
