About Athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your child play a high-impact sport (such as soccer, football, boxing, wrestling, hockey, or baseball), we highly recommend a custom-made athletic mouth guard to protect the gums, teeth, and jaw. Compared to generic mouth guards bought at the store, we create personalized mouth guards and adjust them for our patients. To make it more convenient for you, our on-site lab can create the guard. If you want to decrease the risk of injury or trauma to your mouth, we encourage you to contact Complete Family Dentistry in Wellsboro, PA to learn more about athletic mouth guards.
Should You Buy An Athletic Mouth Guard?
Professionally made athletic mouth guards are helpful if you or a member of your family play a sport with high contact or have an increased risk of injury. Many of our patients participate in martial arts, football, volleyball, soccer, softball, hockey, and wrestling. A personalized mouth guard is great for patients who have dental restorations or braces because these can cut the gums or the soft tissues. A mouth guard can also help athletes who run, perform yoga, or lift weights because it reduces strain on the jaw. Because a customized mouth guard is designed specifically for your needs, it can work better and last longer than stock or boil and bite mouth guards bought at sporting goods shops.

What to Expect
During your appointment for an athletic mouth guard, we will take a series of digital or physical dental impressions. For your convenience, we can send your impressions to our on-site lab. Here, our lab team will expertly craft your athletic mouth guard from high-quality, durable materials. Once completed, patients will come back to have their athletic mouth guard personally fitted. Before you leave, we will ensure your guard fits correctly and feels comfortable. Our team will provide detailed information on caring for your mouth guard so it lasts longer.
As soon as you receive your mouth guard, it is very important to wear it while playing sports or anytime your mouth requires protection. Taking care of your mouth guard is crucial to ensuring it lasts a long time. We recommend keeping it in a secure location and cleaning it before and after use. Depending on the materials used, someone from our team will discuss the best way to clean your mouth guard. You should take it with you to every dental appointment so we can review its current state and also let you know when a new guard is necessary.
