A simple way to prevent the physical, emotional, and financial pain of teeth injury is to wear a mouthguard. Our Oakville patients who play extreme or contact sports are especially encouraged to protect their teeth this way. We can fabricate a custom mouthguard in-house after a consultation appointment, and have it ready for use in no time.
We also advise patients to avoid everyday tasks like using your teeth to cut tape and open packages – scissors were invented for a reason! If you have children, you should also watch out for their teeth. Babies chew everything and toddlers learning to walk fall often, so bring them to a dentist quickly if you suspect a tooth injury.
