At Yonge Street Dental in Toronto, our dentists offer custom-fitted dental appliances including night guards and sports guards, to help improve and protect your oral health.
What is a Dental Appliance?
Maintaining good oral health is more than just brushing and flossing. For those of us who play sports or clench or grind our teeth, dental appliances can help preserve and protect our oral structures.
Dental appliances offered at Yonge Street Dental – such as mouth guards, sports guards, and space maintainers – are used to help improve and protect the health of your oral cavity.
Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards
We offer custom-made mouthguards that fit over your teeth to protect them from damage.
Night & Sports Guards
If you grind or clench your teeth during sleep or during the day, a mouth guard will help protect your teeth from damage. If you clench your jaw, a mouth guard will also help prevent you from clenching and provide some pain relief.
A sports guard provides a cushioning barrier over your teeth and the soft tissue of your teeth and supporting structures from damage from trauma.
Since teeth can move into open spaces, if a baby tooth is lost prematurely the dentists at Yonge Street Dental can make a custom-fitted dental space maintainer to ensure that enough space is left open for the permanent tooth to grow in.
In some cases, we may also create a space maintainer when an adult has lost a tooth until a permanent replacement can be made.
