Are you need of a mouth guard to help keep your smile safe? Mouth guards come in several varieties designed to keep your teeth and gums safe. If you’re looking for a custom-made mouth guard designed to fit your exact dental profile, visit our office to have a customized one crafted for you. Another helpful product that you should consider that can be customized to your dental impressions is a boil and bite mouth guard, which contours to your dental impression if bitten into when it is soft. A third option is known as a stock mouth guard, which comes preformed and ready-to-wear. However, they are merely a one-size-fits-all option.

Once you have found your mouth guard, it is important to care for it properly. Tips for caring for your mouth guard include the following:

– Never leave your mouth guard in the sun or place it in hot water as it can warp, dry or crack.
– Store your mouth guard in an area free of moisture buildup or contamination.
– Keep your mouth guard out of reach of family pets or young children.
– If you notice any signs of damage to your mouth guard, bring it into our dentist for restorations and repairs.
– Schedule regular checkups and examinations with our dentist so that your mouth guard and your mouth can be evaluated properly.
– Always keep your mouth guard clean by rinsing it and cool, soapy water.
