Custom Sports Mouth Guards

A sports mouth guard is a thick rubbery shield worn over the teeth (inside the mouth) that protects the face, jaws and teeth from impact to the face during sporting activities.

It is also strongly recommended by medical experts that both adults and children engage in regular sports/physical activity as it has amazing benefits for physical and mental health.

Each year thousands of adults and children are treated for sports-related dental injuries that could have been prevented or minimized simply by wearing a mouth guard.

Clean Teeth

Many people hesitate to clean their teeth at clinic. In most cases, cleaning your teeth is easy and painless. Most tooth cleanings are performed by a dental hygienist. It begins with a full mouth physical exam before the actual cleaning process begins.

A dental hygienist uses a scaler with a small mirror to remove plaque and tartar around the gum line and between teeth. You will hear scratches, this is normal.

The more tartar you have, the longer it will take to scratch a particular spot. Professional tooth cleanings use toothpaste that smells and tastes like regular toothpaste, but often you can choose the flavor.

Whether you floss regularly at home or not, nothing beats a professional floss session. A dental hygienist will go deep between the teeth to identify potential problem areas that may cause the gums to bleed.

The final step in the cleaning process is fluorine treatment. This remedy is used to protect teeth to fight cavities for several months.

Fresh Breath

You can easily improve bad breath while keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Try these simple steps to keep your mouth fresh and clean.

  • Plaque on your teeth attracts the bacteria that cause bad breath. Trapped food also contributes to the problem.
  • Mouthwash not only freshens your breath but also provides additional protection by removing bacteria. The refreshing mint scent will lift your mood. However, make sure the mouthwash you choose kills the bacteria that cause bad breath.
  • The plaque that normally forms on your tongue can be a host for foul-smelling bacteria. To remove them, gently brush your tongue with a toothbrush.
  • Avoid foods that make your breath acidic. Onions and garlic are enemies. But brushing after meals doesn’t help.
