At Lake of the Woods Dental Health Centre in Kenora, we can help fit you or your child with a night guard or sports guard.
You can help protect yourself or your child's smile with a custom sports mouth guard.
We recognize that being active is part of life, which is why we offer sports guards for patients of all ages.
A custom-fitted mouth guard can help protect your teeth and jaw when participating in sports such as hockey, lacrosse and rugby.
While many sporting stores sell sports guards, a dentist can help ensure a mouth guard fits properly over your teeth to prevent any slipping during a sports activity.
We normally recommend a night guard or bite guard for people who grind their teeth, called bruxism, during sleep.
A night guard can help protect your teeth, any existing dental work, and other vital structures by offering a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth.
Wearing an appliance at night can also help alleviate the strain on your head, neck and jaw muscles.
