Dental Implants at Sone’s On Sheppard Dental Centre in Scarborough

Missing teeth can result in improper biting and chewing, resulting in physical discomfort, a shifted jaw, and even facial disfiguration.


Sone’s On Sheppard Dental Centre offers implants to replace missing teeth. Made from porcelain with a titanium post, implants are permanently placed where your old tooth was and offer realistic appearance, feel and functionality.


We can also use implants to anchor your full dentures or to replace your partial dentures.

Mouthguards

Swimmer

Mouthguards offer protection for your teeth and are often used while playing sports or engaging in any other activities where you can be hit in the mouth.


Pre-made mouthguards are inexpensive but provide minimal protection for your teeth. “Boil-and-bite” mouthguards mould to your teeth and offer greater protection, while custom-made mouthguards are created by your dentist and offer the best protection possible, though they can be expensive.


Consult us about mouthguards before engaging in contact sports.



Mouthguard Care

As with retainers and braces, it is important to keep your mouthguard clean for good oral health.


Tips to keep your mouthguard clean include:


  • Gently scrub your mouthguard after each use with a toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Store your mouthguard in a protective case
  • Do not leave your mouthguard in the sun or in hot water
  • Replace your mouthguard at the beginning of every new sports season or if you notice it has become worn and no longer fits properly
  • Do not wear a retainer with your mouthguard; if you wear braces, your dentist will help design a mouthguard to protect your teeth and your braces.
  • Do not chew on or cut pieces off of your mouthguard.
  • Bring your mouthguard to each dental checkup and your dentist can check to make sure it's still in good shape.


We want to help you protect your mouth against injury. Be sure to ask your us about mouthguards at your next dental checkup – GO TEAM!
