When you or someone in your family plays a sport (like boxing, football, soccer, wrestling, hockey, or baseball), it is strongly suggested that you wear a custom-made mouth guard to shield your gums, teeth, and jawbone. Compared to store-bought generic mouth guards, custom-made mouth guards from Ah! Dentistry will be crafted and adjusted for you, which makes it even more effective and comfortable. If you wish to decrease the chance of harm to your mouth, we invite you to contact Ah! Dentistry at one of our DFW area locations to find out more about custom-made mouth guards.
Professionally made mouth guards are helpful if you or a member of your family participates in a sport with a high risk of injury or frequent contact. A number of our patients take part in volleyball, martial arts, football, softball, soccer, hockey, wrestling, and other sports. A professionally made mouth guard may be particularly useful when you have dental restorations or braces because these can cut your gums, as well as the soft tissues in your mouth. Mouth guards also have been demonstrated to assist athletes in sports without contact (jogging, yoga, weight lifting) by reducing strain on the jawbone. Since a custom-made mouth guard has been created specifically for your goals, it usually matches better and lasts longer compared to boil and bite or stock mouth guards bought at sporting goods shops.
What to Expect
For the first step in making your mouth guard, we will take a collection of physical or digital impressions. Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab where professionals will make your mouth guard from high-quality, durable materials. Once finished and delivered to our practice, you will return to our office to get your guard fitted. We will ensure your mouth guard fits correctly and is comfortable.
As soon as you get your guard, it is very important to wear it during sports or if your mouth requires extra protection. Taking care of your mouth guard will be critical in maintaining its lifespan. It is very important to keep it in a secure location and wash it before and after every use. Our dental team will explain the ideal method to wash your mouth guard, depending on the substances used. You should take it to each dental appointment so we can check its current state and also let you know when a new guard is necessary.
In your initial consultation, we will talk about your options and prices. Ah! Dentistry takes several payments and we will be able to help you to find medical financing. Insurance can cover a portion of the expense so we will talk to your company to find out your precise advantages and calculate your personal expenses.
