Nightguards/ Sports Guards
A nightguard, or mouthguard, protects your teeth and gums when you are prone to clenching your jaw throughout the night. This dental appliance serves as a mediator between your teeth to prevent damage to your teeth and jaw while you sleep. Nightguards are made from durable plastics and acrylic-based materials to make them more comfortable to wear.
A sports guard is famous among contact sports, such as boxing, basketball, and wrestling. The purpose of this mouth wear is to protect your teeth in strenuous activities, especially when they involve a lot of rowdiness and bumping. Sports guards also reduce the risk of clenching your jaws excessively when you are participating in these activities.
If you have a broken or cracked tooth, you may feel insecure – that’s why dental procedures such as tooth-coloured fillings give you a chance to restore your smile and have you feeling confident. Since tooth-coloured fillings have become popular, the variety of choices has increased as well. The most common filling requested among patients is the white filling, also known as the composite filling. The white filling mimics the texture and colour of your teeth. Cosmetic dentists also influenced and boosted this procedure because of the increased usage of amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings. If you’re interested in getting a tooth-coloured filling, visit us at London Square Dental today and get a no-obligation consultation.
Oral Cancer Screening
When you’re having a routine visit to your dentist, there’s a chance they could spot oral cancer simply by screening your lips and mouth. Oral cancer is common among people who drink alcohol regularly, smoke cigarettes of any form, and have too much sun exposure to their lips.
What are the common symptoms of oral cancer?
- Sore in your mouth area that does not heal
- Loose teeth
- Ear or mouth pain
- Difficulty swallowing
If you’re feeling any of these symptoms, call us at (403) 291-4945 to book an appointment.
