About Sports Mouth Guards
At ACE Dental of New Braunfels, our dental professionals understand the importance of protecting your mouth and smile during sports activities. When you or someone in your family participates in a high- or low-impact sport (like football, soccer, boxing, wrestling, hockey, or baseball), our dental team highly suggests a custom-made mouth guard to shield your gums, teeth, and jawbone. Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, customized mouth guards from ACE Dental of New Braunfels will be crafted and fitted for you, which can make them even more comfortable and effective. If you wish to reduce the probability of damage to your mouth during sports, we invite you to contact our New Braunfels, TX team to learn more about custom athletic mouth guards.
who Should Wear An Athletic Mouth Guard?
Custom mouth guards are important for children and adults who participate in sports of any kind. A custom-made sports mouth guard can be particularly useful at protecting any dental restorations or braces during sports, as they can become damaged or injure your mouth should impact occur. Mouth guards also have been proven to assist athletes in non-contact sports (running, yoga, and weight lifting) by reducing tension on the jaw. Since a custom mouth guard is made especially for your needs, it typically fits better and lasts longer than boil and bite or stock mouth guards bought at sporting goods stores.
"I have hated going to the dentist forever. All of them judging me for the condition of my teeth. I changed dentist every time because of this. I went to Ace with the intent of another extraction because I wait too long. Dr Park wasn’t judgemental at all. She listened to me and heard my story and provided me a treatment plan. I’m 2/3 done. I can smile without being ashamed. There’s more work but she is patient with me. I will complete my treatment plan and go to Ace and their wonderful staff always. Big thanks to Dr Park and everyone at Ace for turning my smile back on."- T.D. / Google / Apr 10, 2021

What is The Mouth Guard Process?
For the first step in making your mouth guard, our dental team will take a series of digital impressions of your upper and lower teeth utilizing advanced technology. Your impressions will be sent off to a dental lab where your athletic mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once finished and shipped to our practice, you will come back to our office for your guard fitting. Our team will make sure your guard fits properly and feels comfortable and provide you with instructions on how to properly care for your new device.
Caring For your Mouth Guard
Once you receive your mouth guard, it is important to wear it during sports or whenever your mouth requires protection. Taking care of your mouth guard will be crucial in preserving its lifespan. It is necessary to store it in a safe place and clean it before and after use. Our team will go over the ideal method to clean your sports mouth guard, depending on the materials used to create it. You should take it with you to each dental appointment at our New Braunfels, TX practice so we can inspect its current state. Children may require a new mouth guard as they grow and their mouth further develops.
