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.
"My first time there was to have them check on a tooth that had been bothering me for months. I was afraid of the dentist (which is why I procrastinated for so long). When I arrived the receptionist met me with a smile. I had enough time to fill out my paperwork before I got called back. The dental assistant was nice and the Dentist was reassuring. The booker my appointment to be seen with an oral surgeon and made a follow up appointment to have the rest of my teeth checked out. I appreciate their kindness as well as making my trip there not so painful."- C.J. / Google / May 17, 2018
