In Thunder Bay, investing in a mouthguard for sports and high-performance activity can be a smile-saving choice.


A nightguard is worn while sleeping to prevent grinding or clenching. Also referred to as a bruxism appliance, a nightguard is constructed in a laboratory using a mould of your teeth. It is a hard clear plastic on the outer surface with a soft inner layer that fits to the teeth. It is an effective tool to reduce stress on the jaw or wear on the teeth while you sleep.



Protect injuries to your teeth, jaw, face and head while playing contact sports by wearing a mouthguard in Thunder Bay. Almost mandatory in many sports, mouthguards are custom fitted and flexible, composed of a plastic material and made at our dental clinic.

  • Do use a properly constructed mouthguard fabricated by a dental professional.
  • Do consider a coloured mouthguard as it may be easier to find than a clear one on a playing field.
  • Do rinse your mouthguard with cold water or with a mouthwash before and after each use. To properly clean it, use toothpaste and a toothbrush or clean it in cool, soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
  • Do store and transport your mouthguard in a firm, perforated container to prevent damage and permit air circulation.
  • Do remove retainers and other removable dental appliances such as orthodontic retainers, removable bridges, or dentures (complete or partial) before inserting your mouthguard.
  • Do replace your mouthguard every 2 to 3 years under normal use. Earlier replacement is recommended if it becomes cracked, torn or split, or if the fit deteriorates, significant wear appears, or there is unsatisfactory retention. If your mouthguard absorbs a strong blow, it may need to be replaced immediately.


  • Don’t chew on your mouthguard or use hot water to clean it; don’t leave it in direct sunlight or alter the mouthguard in any way as this will affect the fit and may damage it or decrease its effectiveness.
  • Don’t share your mouthguard with others.
  • Don’t close the mouthguard container until your freshly washed mouthguard is dry.
