Protect Your Health with a Mouthguard
Mouthguards designed for use in sport are as important for protecting teeth as they are for protecting against concussions. Functioning as a sort of shock absorber, mouthguards have been proven to ward against sport related minor head injuries.
At Zanon Dental, we go above and beyond offering the insurance of store bought mouthguards by designing items moulded specifically to the individual mouth. By taking an impression of your teeth, Zanon Dental is able to mouth a guard designed for sports including hockey, football, rugby, lacrosse and wrestling.
Protect Your Smile - Wear A Mouth Protector During Sports!
Because Zanon knows it can be difficult to get children keep safety in mind while playing sports, we ask for a colour choice when moulding our personalized mouthguards. By choosing their own mouthguard colour, we have found that kids are less reluctant to wear their mouthguards.
While it is important to keep your child’s teeth safe, and possibly any investment you have made in orthodontics, mouthguards are necessary for safety. The main purpose of mouthguards is to reduce the incidence and severity of injuries that occur while playing sports.
Mouthguards are proven to Prevent and Protect:
- Oral tissues from being injured by teeth (broken lips, lacerations, etc)
- Tooth fractures
- Jaw fractures
- Against neck injuries
Facts About Mouthgards

- The cost of mouthguards is small when compared with the cost of medical and dental treatment of sports injuries.
- Nearly 200,000 oral injuries every year are prevented by the use of mouthguards.
Zanon Dental would be pleased to fit you with a mouthguard to help protect your smile and your health against injury.
