Taking care of your sports guard:

When you invest in a sports guard, take the right steps to maintain proper hygiene:

 

  • Use cold water and a soft toothbrush to clean the sports guard before and after use. Never use toothpaste, as it can scratch the surface of your appliance.
  • You can use cool, soapy water to clean the sports guard, or retainer/denture tablets to keep them smelling fresh.
  • Avoid leaving the sports guard in hot temperatures or direct sunlight because this can distort its shape.
  • Replace the sports guard if you notice it has worn out. Holes or distortion of shape while not allow the appliance to protect your teeth properly.
  • Carry your sports guard to the dental clinic during your regular checkups. Your dentist is able to look at it and determine if it’s still in good condition.

Why custom made sports guards are the best

How sports guards are made

A sports guard that fits perfectly in the mouth can offer you all the protection you need when playing sports. During a sports injury, your top teeth are more likely to get hurt as opposed to the bottom teeth. Custom-made sports guards are molded to your individual teeth. They offer not only the best protection, but also an added comfort and retention because they are designed from the exact molds of your mouth.

When you visit Smiles on Queen for a custom-fitted sports guard, the dentist will begin by taking an impression of your mouth. This impression will be used to make a replica of your teeth. The mold created mimics every nook and crevice in your teeth, which is what assures the wearer of a custom fit. This mold is then used to create a mouth guard made of a special soft plastic material that can absorb shock and force. When done by an expert, there shouldn’t be an issue in how the mouth guard fits. If you have a sports guard that was custom fitted but doesn’t fit properly, contact us to make the adjustments accordingly. Our dental experts will help you select a sports guard that is right for you.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental office...so I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
