At the New Hamburg Dental Group we want to ensure your child’s safety while playing sports. It is our top priority to protect them from injuries including broken teeth and concussions. We fabricate custom-made sports guards for their ultimate protection and comfort. The appliances are made from thermoplastic materials fabricated on your child’s models or digital impression. They are available in many cool colours and designs that reflect your child’s personality.
Steps in creating sports guards
We use a digital scanner or impression material to take an accurate impression of their teeth. The information is sent to the scanner that will fabricate the sports guard. We let your child choose from various designs that may match his uniform and unique personality. The mouthguard is delivered and checked to ensure your child feels comfortable when wearing it.
Purpose of sports guards:
- Custom-fit to hug each tooth tightly for maximum protection
- Act as a buffer to the teeth when they receive a blow to the head or face
- The thickness of the sports guard helps reduce the impact of a hit. This aids in reducing the severity of concussion
