About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Tega Cay, SC, may be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or other sports that can have a high risk of injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the production of hormones that can constrain strength, endurance, and reaction time. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last for a longer time, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.

What to Expect

As soon as the mouth guard is returned to DentalWorks - Fort Mill in Tega Cay, SC, our dentists will fit the mouth guard for the patient's ideal fit and the most secure bite.
