Checkup & Cleaning
We at New Hamburg Dental Group ensure your child’s safety while playing sports. It is our top priority to keep him away from dental injuries. We fabricate custom-made sports guards for ultimate dental protection and comfort. We make these mouthpieces from thermoplastic materials based on your child’s dental mold. Also, we add cool mouthguard designs that reflect your child personality.
Steps in creating sports guards
We use a digital scanner in taking a dental impression of his teeth to capture the crevices of each tooth. We send the information to the milling machine that will fabricate the sports guards. We let your child choose from various sports guards designs that would match his uniform and unique personality. We cut any excess material for a final touch, and check that your child feels comfortable when wearing the sports guard.
Purpose of sports guards:
- Custom-fit to hug each tooth tightly for maximum protection
- Act as a buffer to the mouth when receiving force and tension
- The thickness of the sports guard reduces tension on the jaw
We believe that your child needs to continue honing his skills in playing sports. We want him to keep doing what he loves to do. Let us design and fabricate his custom sports guards as he achieves different milestones in his chosen sport.
