Are you in need of mouth guard therapy? One of the best uses for mouth guard treatments is to lower your risk of suffering oral health problems caused by things such as blunt trauma. Due to the fact that a single strike to your face can destroy decades of hard work and damage your smile for years to come, it’s often of extreme importance in many situations to use preventative oral appliances to keep your teeth and gums safe.

If you are involved in any high-risk activities including contact sports, be sure to use a mouth guard. Mouth guards can be custom-made by your dentist, contour to your dental profile through a boil and bite mouth guard or come preformed and ready to wear thanks to stock mouth guards. Depending on your oral health care needs and the advice of our dentist, we can help make sure that you receive the mouth guard you need.

Once your mouth guard has been selected, be sure to replace it if any signs of wear or damage should occur. Never wait to replace your mouth guard, as even small signs of damage can lower its effectiveness. Furthermore, always keep it safe and clean from germs and bacteria that can begin to collect on it. Rinse it out with safe materials including soapy water as needed. Always make sure to transport it in a safe container that protects it from the antics of younger siblings or family pets.
