Sports Guards in Markham, ON

Physical activity has many known benefits for people of all ages. Consistently moving throughout the day—whether playing sports, exercising, going for walks, tracking your steps, and so forth—is simply beneficial for your heart, lungs, joints, muscles, metabolism, and endurance. People who are always active, rather than sedentary or a hybrid of the two, are generally more robust and have less body fat. Some research even indicates that it helps improve mental health.

Of course, our team at 7 Days Dental, always encourages keeping fit. But just like you protect your body with elbow and knee pads and a helmet, we recommend protecting your teeth and gums with a custom fit sports guard in Unionville, ON. Since accidents can happen while you are physical, a sports guard can limit your risk of injuries. They help protect against a chipped or brother tooth, damage your nerves, and even tooth loss.

A custom fit for avoiding injury

Sports guards in Unionville, ON, help our patients to effectively avoid dental problems and absorb the harsh impact you may incur to your mouth or jaw from physical activity. Whether you get a ball to the face or your face to the ice or field, a sports guard adds a layer of protection from blunt force trauma. Our team and kids’ dentist near you can provide a custom fit by taking digital impressions to send out to a lab.

Our Markham dental team will advise you to get a sports guard if you participate in any of the following physical activities:
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Football
  • Soccer
  • Wrestling
  • Karate
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Boxing
  • Gymnastics
  • Skateboarding
  • Rollerblading
  • Mountain biking 

Sports guards in Unionville, ON, that you can purchase from a sporting goods store are a cheaper, sufficient way to help keep your teeth and gums safe. On the downside, however, they do not provide the exact comfortable and protective fit. When we customize a sports guard in Unionville, ON, for you, it is made of thinner and more malleable material that moulds your unique mouth.

The four-step process

In addition to treating our patients for different oral health problems, we strive to protect you from situations that could lead to further problems. That is why, if you play sports or participate in other physical activities that could make you vulnerable to injuries, we recommend getting a customized sports guard in Unionville, ON. This appliance is a preventative and straightforward solution:

  • Step 1: Dental impressions are taken with an iTeroTM­ scanner
  • Step 2: Your sports guard is designed and manufactured
  • Step 3: We receive your customized sports guard back from the lab
  • Step 4: You test out the mouth guard in our office to ensure a good fit

Sports guards sit over your teeth and gums to reduce the risk of harm to either of them. At 7 Days Dental, we are pleased to offer this effective dental solution for physically active patients. Call or email us today to find out more about sports guards or book an appointment to get fitted for one.
