Why Choose Custom Mouth Guards?

When it comes to protecting your teeth, generic mouth guards simply can’t compare to the benefits of a custom-fitted guard. Here’s why our custom mouth guards are the ideal choice for athletes in Ottawa:

Precise Fit – Our experienced dentist will take impressions of your teeth to create a mouth guard that perfectly conforms to the contours of your mouth. This customized fit offers superior protection and prevents the guard from slipping or shifting during physical activity.

Enhanced Comfort – Unlike one-size-fits-all mouth guards, our custom options are crafted with your comfort in mind. The personalized fit reduces discomfort and allows for natural breathing and speaking, ensuring you can focus on your game without any distractions.

Maximum Protection – The primary purpose of a mouth guard is to shield your teeth from impacts and prevent dental injuries. Our custom mouthguards provide an additional layer of protection by effectively absorbing and distributing the force of any blows or collisions.

Durable and Long-lasting – Our custom mouth guards are made from high-quality materials that are built to last. With proper care and maintenance, they can withstand rigorous use and offer long-term protection for your teeth.
