Sportguards and Mouthguards

Northern Dental Care’s Mission

To be the dental resource to the Sault Ste Marie youth and adult athlete community for education and prevention of dental related sport injuries and concussions.

Why are sport guards important?

When a sport mouthguard is worn (and fits properly) it helps provide protection for the hard (teeth and jaw) and soft (lips, cheeks, gums) tissues of the mouth, by absorbing and redistributing the forces generated by traumatic blows.

Why a “Custom” sports guard?

Custom sport mouthguards are typically regarded as the most protective and comfortable type of guard. Therefore, the athlete is more likely to wear their sports guard. Custom sport guards only fit the athlete it was made for and they are still able to speak quite clearly.

Why not a “boil and bite” or generic sports guard?

Typically they are uncomfortable, flop around in the mouth, and you must clench to hold them in place. Often you see athletes with their sport guards half in, half out of their mouths.

What sports should require a sports mouthguard?

Any sport where player contact is commom.The following would be considered a contact sport. Football, boxing, ice hockey, roller hockey, lacrosse, field hockey, rugby, soccer, basketball, water polo, martial arts and wrestling.

Are there any other sports where one requires a sport mouthguard?

Anyone participating in skateboarding, baseball, racquetball, volleyball, tennis, gymnastics and skiing are all at risk for injury and therefore should wear a sports guard.

The Northern Dental Care team can make a variety of custom fabricated athletic sports guards(size and colour) . The type of sport participated in determines the thickness that is needed for the guard.
