Get Your Custom Athletic Mouthguard in Time for Fall Sports

If you play sports, fall is a big time of year! As part of your preparations for the season, have you thought about a mouthguard? Mouthguards protect your teeth, gums, and lips from painful injuries like chips, cracks, cuts, and knocked-out teeth. Now is a great time to get a custom athletic mouthguard!

Why Are Custom Athletic Mouthguards the Right Choice?

You can get mouthguards at any sports equipment store or online retailer, but they’re typically one-size-fits-all. While these mouthguards are better than nothing, they don’t fit well and can be uncomfortable. Custom mouthguards are based on impressions of your smile, so they’re a perfect fit. They’re also more comfortable and durable, so they last 3-5 years with proper care!

How Do You Care for Your Mouthguard?

To protect your mouthguard and oral health during the fall sports season, mouthguards should be cleaned regularly. Always rinse the mouthguard with warm water after taking it out, but don’t use hot water. Heat can warp the plastic. You should also thoroughly brush the mouthguard at least once a week with a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild dish soap. Why not toothpaste? It’s too abrasive. For a deep clean, soak your mouthguard in a cleaning substance like a denture cleaner about once a month.

Are Custom Mouthguards Expensive?

Custom mouthguards cost more than store-bought mouthguards, but they’re worth the price. Not only are you more likely to wear your mouthguard consistently, but a custom mouthguard lasts longer. Using a mouthguard also protects you from expensive and painful dental emergencies. Have insurance? Your provider may cover a portion of mouthguard costs. We also offer a membership plan with a 15% discount on all services!

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
