About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dentist, like our dentists in Cary, NC, can be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. martial arts and football) or other sports that can involve injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the release of hormones that can constrain strength, reaction time, and endurance. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Cary Crossroads are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last longer, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.

What to Expect
To make the mouth guard, our dentists take a collection of digital X-rays and physical impressions for the dental workshop where sophisticated technology and superior resources will be used to craft the patient's custom mouth guard. As soon as the mouth guard is returned to DentalWorks - Cary Crossroads in Cary, NC, our dentists will fit the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will explain all mouth guard maintenance guidelines, particularly the ideal method to clean and carry the mouth guard. To confirm the wear and fit of the guard is fine-tuned when needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to each of their cleaning appointments at DentalWorks - Cary Crossroads. With good care, a mouth guard can be kept as many as 5 - 8 years, but our dentists will examine the mouth guard frequently and help every patient determine when they need a new mouth guard.
