protect wetaskiwin kids teeth with custom mouthguards

At Wetaskiwin Family Dental we see many Wetaskiwin children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.

I am Tim Mahoney and I recommend that Wetaskiwin parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most Wetaskiwin sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.

If you or your child is in need of cosmetic dentistry due to an injury or an accident, my staff and I at Wetaskiwin Family Dental offer many restorative procedures.

If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be the best remedy. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth or teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or discoloration.

Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth colour and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.

If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Wetaskiwin Family Dental will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, colour, and translucency.

Wetaskiwin Family Dental has been offering family and cosmetic dentistry to the people of Alberta since 1983. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. Wetaskiwin dentist invites you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
