If you or your child plays a high-impact sport (such as soccer, boxing, football, baseball, hockey, or wrestling), then the board-certified Dental Health team highly recommends a custom mouth guard to protect the teeth, gums, and jaw. Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, custom mouth guards from Dental Health are molded and fit for each patient, making them more comfortable and effective. To protect your family's smiles against the risk of oral damage that can occur during athletic activities, please contact Dental Health Brattleboro, VT for more information about custom mouth guards.
Mouth guards are important if you or your child plays a sport that involves high contact or has a high risk of injury. Many of our patients participate in martial arts, football, volleyball, hockey, softball, soccer, wrestling, and other contact sports. A mouth guard can be especially helpful if you or your family members have braces or dental restorations since these can easily cut your gums and the soft tissue lining your mouth. Mouth guards have also been proven to help athletes in non-contact sports (running, yoga, weight training) by decreasing tension on the jaw. Since a custom mouth guard is made especially for individual needs, it typically fits better and lasts longer than stock or boil and bite mouth protectors available at sporting goods stores.

What to Expect
To create your custom mouth guard, Dental Health will take a series of digital or physical impressions of your mouth. These impressions will be sent off to a dental laboratory where your mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once made and sent back to our office, you will come back to our office for a fitting. Our team will make sure that your guard fits properly and feels comfortable.
Once you receive your mouth guard, it is important to wear it while playing sports or any time your mouth needs protection. Caring for your mouth guard will be crucial in preserving its lifespan. It is important to store it in a safe place and clean it before and after use. A member of the Dental Health team will go over the best way to clean your mouth guard based on the materials used. You should bring it with you to every dental appointment so the Dental Health team can inspect its condition and tell you when a replacement is needed.
During your consultation, our Dental Health team can go over your options and costs. Our practice accepts many payment methods and we can help you find low-interest medical financing. Dental insurance may cover some of the cost, so we will contact your provider to determine your exact benefits and estimate your out-of-pocket costs.
