Mouth Guards to Protect Your Teeth
Sports Mouth Guards
Imagine what it would be like if you suddenly lost one or two of your front teeth. Smiling, talking, eating—everything would suddenly be affected. Knowing how to prevent injuries to your mouth and face is especially important if you participate in organized sports or other recreational activities.
Mouth guards help cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age.
At Halton Denture Clinic we offer a wide variety of colours, designs and patterns for you to choose from.

Mouth Guard FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions
A sports mouth guard is designed to act as a shock absorber that distributes force exerted onto your jaws and teeth evenly throughout the appliance. Sports mouth guards act as an internal impact barrier between your upper and lower teeth and also as a protective barrier from external impacts as well.
Sports mouth guards come in three main different types:
Stock MouthGuard – An inexpensive and universally fitting mouth guard that provides some protection, but not nearly as much as their counterparts.
Boil & Bite MouthGuard – Made from a thermoplastic material, this type of sports mouth guard is placed in hot water and then is placed in your mouth to be shaped around your teeth, providing a more comfortable and conforming fit.
Custom Fitted MouthGuard – Individually designed and made at a dental office based on an impression of your teeth. Although more expensive, they provide the most comfort and the best protection.
There are many different ways to thoroughly clean a mouthguard with common household supplies:
- Toothbrush & Non-Abrasive Toothpaste
- Alcohol-Free Soap & Water
- Diluted Mouthwash
- Baking Soda
- Hydrogen Peroxide & Vinegar
Each combination of household items provide a different level of cleanness and need to be rinsed off thoroughly. Contact our team to learn more about our techniques for cleaning your mouth guards!
A dental mouth guard’s main purpose is to prevent teeth damage. Whether that be from sports, physical activities, or, you suffer from bruxism (subconscious grinding or teeth clenching) it’s typically advised to use a mouth guard to help reduce injury or damages. A dental mouth guard will help protect your teeth, and can reduce jaw tension as well.
A mouth guard’s lifespan is determined by which materials are used, the degree at which you exert yourself during physical activities, grind your teeth, and how well you take care of your mouth guard. However, you can expect a typical dental night guard to last for up to 5 years.
