Mouth Guards & Dental Appliances
We offer our Orangeville Dental Centre patients a variety of dental appliances such as mouth guards and space maintainers, to protect and improve their mouth health and development.
For child or adult, participating in potentially injurious recreational or sporting activities mouth guards, also known as sports guards or athletic mouth protectors, are crucial pieces of equipment.
Snugly fitting over the upper teeth, mouth guards protect the entire oral region from traumatic injury. This preserves both the aesthetic appearance and the health of the smile. Mouth guards are also used to prevent tooth damage in those who grind their teeth at night (bruxism).Learn More About Mouth Guards
Space maintainers or “spacers” are orthodontic appliances that are inserted as placeholders until the permanent teeth are ready to erupt. Space maintainers can be fixed or removable and are typically used to manage the premature loss of baby teeth.
Our team of professionals at Orangeville Dental Centre will determine whether a fixed or a removable space maintainer is the best option for your situation.
