Sports Mouth Guard in
Chino Hills, California

Dental mouth guards have long been used to protect the teeth, gums and supporting tissues from damage, injury and trauma.

Sports Mouth Guard in Chino Hills, California

There are two types of sports mouth guards: over-the-counter and custom. While over-the-counter guards are helpful for occasional use, many dental patients require the benefit of a customized dental mouth guard fitted by a dentist to effectively prevent injury.

Caring for your new custom mouth guard is simple.

The American Dental Association recommends keeping protected in a sturdy container in between usage. You should also be careful to clean your mouth guard after use and occasionally soak it in cool, soapy water for thorough sanitation. Custom dental mouth guards are designed for durability, but it is important to check your mouth guard for signs of wear every few months. Mouth guards for children and teens must be replaced frequently to account for growing jaws and changes to the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many reasons why wearing a dental mouth guard could be right for you. A few examples include:

  • Nighttime wear to prevent damage from teeth grinding and bruxism
  • Tooth and lip protection during high-impact sports, such as martial arts
  • To serve as a barrier between the lips and oral appliances, such as metal braces
  • To protect fragile bridgework

Your visit will consist of taking an impression of your teeth that will be used as a mold for your new mouth guard. You may even be able to leave your dental appointment with your custom mouth guard in-hand.

Before you leave your dentist’s office with your new mouth guard, you’ll receive instructions on how and when to wear it. If you suffer from TMJ disorders or bruxism, for example, you will likely wear your mouth guard at night. If you participate in recreational sports, however, you may only need to wear your mouth guard during physical activity.
