Protecting your teeth goes beyond just brushing, flossing, and routine dental checkups. Sometimes your teeth need protection during physical activities or from bad habits like nighttime teeth grinding. At Panatella Dental, we provide both custom and brand name dental mouth guards in Calgary. Mouth guards are available for both adults and children who play sports or grind their teeth at night. Even if your recreational activity isn’t a contact sport like biking, it is still worth considering getting a mouth guard if there is still a risk of injury to your mouth. You can talk with one of our dentists to see if you need a mouth guard.
There are two types of mouth guards we offer at Panatella Dental: hard mouth guards and soft mouth guards. Each is prescribed according to your needs. Hard mouth guards, for example, are used to treat bruxism or teeth grinding, retention issues, and TMD (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders). We provide soft mouth guards for those in sports or who have clenching habits.
At Panatella Dental we provide Pro-Form sports mouth guards. They provide protection and comfort without interfering with speech or breathing during play. If you are dealing with teeth grinding, TMD, or any other problem that requires a mouth guard, Panatella Dental has them custom made in a lab.
Mouth guards require two appointments to complete. During the first appointment, we take an impression of your bite. The following appointment we insert the mouth guard and provide adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit and bite. Call Panatella Dental in Calgary to schedule your appointments today.
