SEALANTS

A dental sealant is a thin plastic coating that is painted on the surface of the back teeth to protect them from bacteria. Premolars and molars have fissures that cannot always be properly cleaned by toothbrushes because they are very narrow. Sealants help to smooth out these depressions to keep bacteria out. The application of dental sealants is fast and painless

Mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment in contact sports. They should be worn by athletes of all ages who participate in the following:

  • Football

  • Hockey

  • Lacrosse

  • Wrestling

  • Basketball

  • Baseball / Softball

  • Soccer

  • + any sport where contact is a possibility


Wearing a mouth guard helps prevent against structural damage to your teeth and jaw and also helps prevent injuries such as lacerations to your cheeks, tongue and lips.  Mouth guards have also been shown to help decrease the risk of concussions.

Mouth guards are available in most any sporting goods store, but you should be careful when purchasing a mouth guard.  Mouth guards like this do not offer the best level of protection.  They are also usually ill-fitting and uncomfortable.  

For the highest level of comfort and protection, you should visit your dentist for a custom mouth guard fitting.  A custom mouth guard is created specifically for the optimal protection of YOUR mouth.  It is created with thin plastic that is hardened to protect your teeth.  The thinness of the custom mouth guard allows for easy breathing and also allows for easy communication (especially important for you star quarterbacks calling out the signals).  

See your dentist today for a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth and ensure that you maintain the highest level of performance on the field, court or rink.
