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.
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.
"Dr. Calcano has blessed hands. I was so nervous before a recent dental procedure and she made me feel comfortable. I was done before I knew it and the best part is that it was PAINLESS. Highly recommend her and her staff."- E.A. / Facebook / May 25, 2021

"We've been coming to Chestnut Hill Dental for many years. The reason we've been loyal is because of the amazing service we've gotten and most importantly, the staff has been phenomenal. Lauren, Julia and Dr. Calcano are among the best. They always make us feel at home. On a side note, I wish I can say the same with the new receptionist. The younger one is cold and lacks friendly customer service. I was met with a cold response when I asked her a question. She is not very welcoming. We miss Erin."- A. / Demandforce / Sep 24, 2020

What to Expect
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.
As soon as you receive your mouth guard, it is very important to wear it while playing sports or if your mouth needs protection. Caring for your mouth guard will be crucial in preserving its lifespan. It is very important to store it in a safe place and clean it before and after use. We will go over the best way to clean your mouth guard based on the materials used. You should bring it with you to every dental appointment so we can inspect its condition and tell you when a replacement is necessary.
During your consultation, we can go over your options and costs. Chestnut Hill Dental accepts many payment methods and we can help you find medical financing. Dental insurance may cover some of the expense, so we will talk to your provider to find out your exact benefits and estimate your out-of-pocket costs.
