At Marine Way Dental Centre in Burnaby South we are here to help fit you with dental appliances such as mouth guards, bite guards and snoring devices that are custom fit to your mouth.
A mouth guard or sports guard is an important device that protects yours or your child’s teeth from damage when playing contact sports or sports where there is a risk of damage to the teeth. Generic sports guards do not always fit the mouth and may not protect the teeth properly.
At Marine Way Dental Centre, we custom fit mouth guards to fit the unique shape of your mouth. Having a custom fit mouth guard ensures that the device stays in and provides optimal protection. At Marine Way Dental Centre, we believe mouth guards are extremely vital when it comes to protecting your teeth. Contact us to get fitted out with your custom mouth guard today. Contact Us.
Bite guards are important dental devices that are used for a variety of reasons and to ensure the overall health of your teeth. Bite guards are often recommended to patients who experience chronic tension headaches, have TMJ, and are experiencing teeth ware, tooth pain and tooth cracking.
These issues are often the result of teeth grinding or clenching – the bite guard ensures the teeth are protected from wear and tear.
The first step in creating a custom fit mouth guard or bite guard often involves dental imaging of the patient’s teeth.
After this, a mould is taken of the patient’s teeth to ensure the guard will fit snugly in the mouth. The mould or impression of the jaw will be sent to the lab where a guard is created.
The patient will generally return to the dentist for a second appointment to try out the bite/mouth guard to ensure that it fits properly and is comfortable.
