Protect your teeth from impact or bruxism with a dental mouth guard in Calgary!
A dental mouth guard in Calgary is one of the easiest ways to protect your teeth and prevent a dental emergency.
Knocks to the face and mouth are a leading cause of dental emergencies, including cracked/broken teeth, knocked-out teeth, bleeding gums, and more. While we can’t always prevent the impact, we can protect our oral health with a simple mouth guard.
Another common cause of tooth damage is wear and tear from bruxism (or grinding teeth at night). Again, a custom mouth guard is a simple way to keep your teeth in their best shape and prevent damage from bruxism.

Sports Mouth Guard in Calgary
One common type of mouthguard many patients can benefit from is a dental sports mouth guard. Sports mouth guards in Calgary are designed to protect the entire mouth from sports-related trauma.
They are very helpful for patients in high-impact activities, including contact sports. They allow you to lead an active life without putting your teeth at risk.
Some of the activities to use a sports mouth guard during include:
Combat sports (wrestling, boxing, MMA, etc.)
Dental Night Guard in Calgary
Another helpful type of guard is the dental night guard. A dental night guard in Calgary is worn during sleep. It prevents the wearing down of your teeth as a result of grinding and clenching while you sleep. Studies show that the majority of patients who grind their teeth are completely unaware that they are doing it. After some time, tooth grinding can wear down the teeth, leaving them misshapen and susceptible to later problems.
Using a night mouthguard is a simple way to protect your teeth from the harmful impact of bruxism. Patients who clench or grind their teeth at night should wear a custom mouthguard.
