Mouth Guards Overview
If you or someone in your family plays a high-impact sport (like soccer, boxing, football, baseball, hockey, or wrestling), then our experienced dental team highly recommends a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth, gums, and jaw. Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, custom made mouth guards from Chestnut Hill Dental will be molded and fit for you, making it more comfortable and effective. If you wish to reduce the probability of damage to your mouth, we encourage you to contact our facility in Chestnut Hill, MA to find out more about custom mouth guards.
Best Candidates for Mouth Guards
Professionally made mouth guards are important if you or a member of your family plays a sport that involves high contact or has a high risk of injury. Many of our patients participate in martial arts, football, volleyball, hockey, softball, soccer, wrestling, and other sports. A professionally made mouth guard can be especially useful when you have braces or dental restorations since these can cut your gums and the soft tissue lining your mouth. Mouth guards have also been demonstrated to help athletes in non-contact sports (running, yoga, weight training) by decreasing tension on the jaw. Since a custom mouth guard is made especially for your needs, it usually fits better and lasts longer than stock or boil and bite mouth protectors available at sporting goods stores.

What to Expect with Mouth Guards
To create your mouth guard, a series of digital or physical impressions will be taken. Your impressions will be sent off to a dental laboratory where your mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once finished and delivered back to our office, you will come back to our office for a fitting. Our team will make sure your guard fits properly and feels comfortable.
