Sports Guards

As a family-oriented practice, By The Lake Dental wants to ensure your whole family, kids and adults, can enjoy sports safely. In contact sports such as hockey, football, rugby and boxing it is often required to have a mouth guard, however injury can occur even in other sports such as soccer, basketball, and many others where contact is made with other people and objects, as accidents can happen.

Without a mouthguard these dental injuries are extremely painful and expensive to fix, especially for people with braces. In order to help your family have fun safely, we have custom made mouth guard options that are right for you. With custom made sports guards we ensure that you have more comfort and protection compared to the over the counter sports guards, which often are uncomfortable, impair speech and breathing, and do not provide the same level of protection.

For children as their mouth grows it is important to change mouthguards roughly every 6 months, to keep a fit that protects the mouth. For adults, as long as there is no damage to the mouth guard they can last much longer. In order to care for your mouth guard properly, rinse it with cold water before and after each use, store it in the provided container and regularly check for any wear and tear or damage.
