About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dentist, like our dentists in High Point, NC, can be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. football and martial arts) or activities that may involve falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, using a mouth guards has also been proven to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the release of hormones that can limit reaction time, strength, and endurance. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - High Point are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last longer, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.

What to Expect
To customize the mouth guard, our dentists take a series of digital X-rays and impressions for the dental laboratory where advanced technology and high quality materials will be used to create the patient's unique mouth guard. Once the mouth guard is sent back to DentalWorks - High Point in High Point, NC, our dentists will adjust the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will go over all mouth guard care instructions, including the best way to clean and store the mouth guard. To ensure the wear and fit of the guard is adjusted as needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to all of their exams and cleanings at DentalWorks - High Point.
