About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Ft. Worth, TX, may be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. hockey and football) or activities that may have a high risk of falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the production of hormones that can limit endurance, strength, and reaction time. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at Woodcreek Dental Care are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last for a longer time, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.

"I had not been to the dentist in 8 years so I was nervous! Everyone here was super friendly, though, and answered all my questions. Nobody tried to upsell me on getting older but still sound fillings replaced, and the cleaning wasn't painful like I feared it might be.

What to Expect
To customize the mouth guard, our dentists will take a series of digital X-rays and impressions for the dental laboratory where advanced equipment and high quality materials will be used to create the patient's unique mouth guard. Once the mouth guard is sent back to Woodcreek Dental Care in Ft. Worth, TX, our dentists will adjust the mouth guard for the patient's ideal fit and the most secure bite.
Our dentists will go over all mouth guard care instructions, including the best way to wash and store the mouth guard. To ensure the fit and wear of the guard is adjusted as needed, the patient should take their mouth guard to all of their scheduled appointments at Woodcreek Dental Care. With proper use and care, a mouth guard can last up to eight years, so our dentists will check the mouth guard regularly and help each patient decide when to get a replacement.
