Sport Guards

If you have ever watched a hockey player during an interview, you can quickly tell if he wears a mouth guard or not. Many sports such as football, martial arts and soccer can become physical and it only takes one accidental knee or elbow to drastically alter you smile. Teeth are built to be strong but a sudden impact can chip, break and completely remove teeth from the mouth. Canyon Dental offers custom fitted sports guards which will not only protect your teeth but they will also help reduce injuries to your arches, lips and gums

A custom fitted sports guard will be comfortable to wear and will not negatively impact your performance or breathing during your physical activity. Play your heart out, but make sure you are protecting your precious teeth while doing so!

Night Guards

A night guard is similar to a sports guard in the fact that it is designed to protect your teeth and is uniquely made to fit your smile. A night guard is designed to ward off teeth grinding and other damages that may occur while you are sleeping. Most people don’t partake in full contact sports in their bed but grinding your teeth can lead to serious dental damage in the long run. Our night guards are harder than sports guards and can also help relax your jaw and ward off tension headaches and migraines as a result.

How do I know if I grind my teeth at night?

  • Do you wake up in the morning with a slight headache?
  • Are your teeth sensitive?
  • Do you often dream of your teeth falling out or breaking?
  • Does your jaw click?
  • Do you have neck or jaw pain?
  • Are all your teeth the same length or appear flat?

If you answered yes to any of these, you may need a night guard to thwart grinding and save your teeth from long term damage! Book your appointment today to end headaches, jaw pain and sensitive teeth.

We are always welcoming new patients!
