Performance Mouth Wear
Safeguarding the mouth and teeth is something that shouldn’t be undervalued. At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, protecting the teeth is a high priority for patients of all ages. It goes well beyond oral hygiene and dental visits – it’s a conscious effort to take great care of the mouth and teeth.
Today, with many of us engaged in active lifestyles, and even organized sports, taking care of the teeth has become far more important. From bike riding, to racquet sports, to contact sports, more activity means more risk for injury – it just makes sense to take the extra care and precautions.
Many sports organizations have already established rules that require the use of approved safety equipment - like helmets, face shields, and body protection. But when it comes to protecting the mouth and teeth, this relies almost entirely on individual responsibility (no rules or regulations).
At the Mackenzie Dental Centre, Under Armour Performance Mouth Wear has proven to be one of the most effective ways to protect the mouth, lips, and teeth. The mouthpiece is available for all ages, in a variety of options, and is suitable for practically every sport and every athletic activity.
Under Armour Performance Mouth Wear provides a number of benefits during athletic activity. These mouth-guards offer basic personal protection; maximized airflow; and practically no tooth clenching. Unlike store-bought appliances, Under Armour is custom-fitted for each patient.
For those involved in non-contact sports, the customized ArmourBite® Mouthpiece allows the jaw to move naturally during distance running or weight lifting. This particular mouthpiece is designed to optimize air intake, which contributes to increased endurance and performance.
For those engaged in contact sports, the ArmourBite® Mouthguard has been designed to keep the teeth properly aligned, while offsetting the negative effects of tooth clenching. This mouth guard has a patented design that provides a comfortable fit, and allows for breathing and talking.
Another protective option from the Mackenzie Dental Centre is the ArmourFit™ Mouthguard. It’s designed for contact sports, and offers a “dentist-designed” fit. It provides excellent protection, without compromising performance, and makes it easy to breathe and talk during activity.
Under Armour Performance Mouth Wear is the ideal for any – from wrestling, to basketball, to martial arts, to soccer. Whether it’s the mouth guard or the mouthpiece, athletes can be assured that the teeth are cushioned, the mouth is protected, and the jaw is shielded from impact.
With Under Armour products, the team at Mackenzie helps patients choose the product that best suits the need. A perfect fit, and maximum comfort is assured with every installation. Above all, the Mackenzie team encourages every patient to be safe and preventive, in whatever they do.
Under Armour products come with a Universal Guarantee Of Performance – it simply means that the product is guaranteed to deliver performance for the long run. And at the Mackenzie Dental Centre, Dr. Lloyd Pedvis stands behind every mouth guard and mouthpiece that’s made.
For the patient, it’s important to understand that over-the-counter mouth protection is basic at best. With Under Armour, every piece is professionally crafted and custom designed.
