There are a lot of different kinds of guards out there that can benefit patients. Athletic guards are a must for youth or adults that are in active sports and martial arts. Certainly those are things we could help you with. They're going to be more of a custom guard for you as opposed to what you might get over the counter. We have professional dental laboratories using the best materials to make sure that those hold up the longest they can for you and perform the best way possible. Guards though are also important for a good majority of the population that either grinds or clenches their teeth. Many patients do that and they're even unaware that they do that. We have some designs here in our office that make the appliance much smaller and easier to get used to. Again, they're going to be far superior to what you'll get in the drugstore because it's a custom fit for your own mouth using materials that are high quality made by an actual dental laboratory. So when we custom-make a guard for you, it's going to last a long time and it's going to be well worth the investment helping you prevent further problems in the future.

Wear a Custom-Fit Mouthguard to Prevent Dental Damage
If you’ve ever used the boil-and-bite or one-size-fits-all mouthguards available at most sporting goods stores, you’ve probably noticed that they are not very comfortable. But that’s only part of the problem. Simply put, store-bought options do not work very well.
In contrast, custom athletic mouthguards from Dr. Wallin will fit comfortably and do an excellent job of protecting your teeth from injury. That’s because we take precise impressions of your mouth before making your new appliance.
Many high-contact sports, such as football and hockey, require this kind of teeth protection. But a mouthguard should be worn during any physical activity where dental injuries are possible. Here are just some of the other activities you should wear mouth protection for:
- Horseback riding
- Mountain biking
A professionally made mouthguard may be the difference between a dental emergency and manageable pain. Rather than chipping or even knocking out your teeth, you may only experience some minor swelling and soreness.
If you do happen to damage your teeth during physical activity, Dr. Wallin can recommend a variety of restorative dentistry options to repair or replace them.
Take Care of Your New Mouthguard to Make It Last
Taking care of your mouthguard is simple:
- Rinse it off with water or mouthwash before and after each use.
- Every so often, gently clean it with cool soapy water or by brushing with toothpaste.
- Store it in a clean, dry, vented container.
Don’t run the risk of dental injury to you or a family member. Visit Silver Leaf Dentistry for athletic mouthguards in Longmont, CO. Call us today at 720-504-2539 to request an appointment.
