Protect Your Teeth
at Home & at Night
There’s more to protecting your teeth than a thorough brushing and flossing routine. If you love playing sports or struggle with grinding your teeth while you sleep, one way you can help preserve your healthy, glowing smile is by wearing sports and night guards.
Despite their similarities, they serve different purposes. We can help you find out which type of mouthguard is right for your needs when you come in for an appointment. Book your next one today and let the team at Elevate Dental protect your teeth, whether you’re out on the field or getting a full night’s rest.
Customizing Your Guard to Fit Your Needs
While there is a variety of over-the-counter mouthguards available at your local pharmacy centre, they might not address every concern you may have about your teeth.
Every smile is different, so we take the time to customize your mouthguard to meet your needs. Using advanced moulding technology, we get detailed impressions of your teeth that we use to create your mouthguard so it fits comfortably and protects your smile.
Custom mouthguards help lower your risk of dental injuries related to sports and teeth grinding.
Why Wear a Sports Guard?
If you play sports like soccer, hockey, football, lacrosse, and rugby, we highly recommend using a sports guard. Sports mouthguards are specifically designed to help protect your teeth from impacts to the face and reduce the risk of biting your tongue, lips, and cheeks.
Sports guards can protect more than your teeth, so please speak to our team before settling for an over-the-counter mouthguard at your local sporting goods store. Researchers believe that athletes wearing over-the-counter products are twice as likely to experience mild traumatic brain injuries and concussions as those who wear custom-made dental appliances!
Should You Wear a Night Guard?
If you struggle with grinding your teeth at night, you might have a condition known as bruxism. Bruxism could damage your teeth, but the condition could lead to other symptoms like:
- Facial sensitivity
- Jaw pain
- Tooth sensitivity
A nighttime mouthguard can help manage these symptoms by acting as a layer of cushioning between your upper and lower teeth. With the help of a custom night guard, you could sleep more comfortably and wake up feeling less pain around your face and mouth.

OUR GOOGLE REVIEWS
I had an accident that resulted in a cracked tooth and a lot of pain. They saw me the same day I called and came in the next day, on a closed day on a long weekend, to fix it! Great staff ( thank you Cindy and Sherry) and Dr Hakkaarrt was very thorough in her assessment and repair of my injury. She is the best at giving freezing needles that I ever experienced. I would give 6 stars if I could. Thank you to you all for your help.
Dr. Krystal is excellent! I highly recommend her and her team to everyone who is looking to keep their teeth where they should be.
I desperately needed to get out of pain. There are no words to describe how WONDERFUL my experience with Dr. Krystal and her staff! Greeted with respect, dignity and a deep desire to provide the best possible care for her patients and their many, diverse needs. Having neglected myself and my teeth comes the my own challenges and going to the dentist is quite a daunting challenge to say the least. Patience, persistence, and perseverance is what it takes with each individual and Dr. Krystal and her staff come through with flying colors! Alway’s warm and welcoming and not satisfied until their patient is happy with whatever work may have been needed! My gratitude for this dentist and her staff goes beyond the stars! There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it!
