Mouthguards


Mouthguards
When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age. While collision and contact sports, such as boxing, are higher-risk sports for the mouth, you can experience a dental injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.

There Are Three Types of Mouthguards
•  Stock: These are inexpensive and come pre-formed, ready to wear. However, they often don't fit well. They can be bulky and can make breathing and talking difficult.
•  Boil and Bite: These mouth protectors can be bought at many sporting goods stores and drugstores and may offer a better fit than stock mouth protectors. They are first softened in water (boiled), then inserted and allowed to adapt to the shape of your mouth.
•  Custom Made: The best mouthguard is one that has been custom made for your mouth by your dentist. They may be more expensive than the other versions, but because they are customized, usually offer the best fit. However, if you can't afford a custom-fitted mouthguard, you should still wear a stock mouthguard or a boil-and-bite mouthguard from the drugstore.
What Our Patients Are Saying About Us

"My 4 year old son loves getting his teeth cleaned! He woke up asking when he was going to go get his teeth brushed because he remembered us talking about it the day before. His assistant Whitney was awesome and made the experience spectacular. The treasure tower on the way out was just icing on the cake!"
