What Is an Athletic Mouth Guard?
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 A Mouth Guard for Sports?
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.

What is The Custom 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.
