PROTECTION FOR SPORTS

Perform at Your Peak… and Protect Your Teeth!

Plenty of us love to live active, healthy lives with plenty of exercise, particularly when it comes to sports. However, that game of basketball can cause serious problems for your teeth if you get hit or take a hard fall on your mouth. We’ve seen plenty of injuries come in ranging from chips and cracks to missing teeth that cause nerve damage, and we don’t want that to happen to you!

The solution? Purpose-built athletic mouthwear, available now at Costello Family Dentistry. However, these aren’t your run-of-the-mill mass-produced mouthguards – they’re custom-fitted pieces that offer real protection for your unique smile!

Why Use
Mouthguards?

We can’t stress enough the importance of protecting your teeth, particularly in contact sports such as hockey. By partnering with Pro-Form, we can offer custom-fitted mouthguards that not only better protect you from impact but also stop you from clenching – and hurting – your teeth! This way, your body won’t push your brain to release hormones that can negatively impact performance. In short, athletic mouthwear can actually help you perform at your peak – without hurting your teeth! Many professional athletes such as weightlifters, soccer and golf stars, baseball champions, and more swear by custom-fitted mouthguards to stay safe and play their best game.

ENSURING FIT & COMFORT

The Fitting Process

Our team will work closely with you to ensure the athletic mouthwear you select achieves a perfect, protective fit. We start by making an exact impression of your top and bottom teeth, followed by a bite impression for optimal results and wearing comfort. We pour and make the mouth guards in-house. Night guards are sent out to a lab and typically arrive back to our Carleton Place dental clinic within 10 days. Finally, we make sure that the fit of the mouth guard or night guard is precise and sufficiently protects all of your teeth.

TRUSTED MOUTHGUARDS

Durable and Dependable

These are no ordinary mouthguards; they’ve been specially engineered to last through plenty of heavy use, constructed from highly durable materials. A single athletic mouthguard from Costello Family Dentistry can last the entire season, ensuring you can stay at the top of your game without worrying about bruxism or unintended damage. If you’re a habitual chewer, however, be aware that you may need to replace yours earlier than intended.

Also, did we mention that they come in a bunch of fun colours and custom appearances?

Who are Mouthguards for?

Our Pro-Form mouthwear is an ideal choice for most athletes over the age of 8 years old. However, there are restrictions that you should be aware of. For instance, should you have braces, it’s better to discuss other options with us. The same applies to those with joint pain or who are missing molars due to the specific design of the mouthguards we offer; alternative solutions can be found by arranging a consultation.
