About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom built by a dentist, like our dentists in Richmond, TX, can be used to shield the teeth and gums while enjoying contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or other activities that often involve falling or injury (i.e. biking and skating). In addition to defending the jaw, teeth, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to boost athletic performance by lowering stress, which diminishes the release of hormones that can restrict strength, endurance, and reaction time. Even though generic mouth guards are priced lower, custom built mouth guards from our dentists at Waterside Dental Care are created from superior quality ingredients, fit more snuggly, last longer, and give more reliable protection, which can prevent high-priced dental services.

What to Expect
To personalize the mouth guard, our dentists take a set of digital X-rays and molds for the dental lab where progressive technology and top-quality supplies will be used to build the patient's personalized mouth guard. When the mouth guard is shipped back to Waterside Dental Care in Richmond, TX, our dentists will fine-tune the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will talk to the patient about all mouth guard use information, such as the proper technique to clean and keep the mouth guard. To make sure the wear and fit of the guard is modified if needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to every one of their appointments at Waterside Dental Care. With ideal care and use, a mouth guard can be worn for 6 - 8 years, but our dentists will assess the mouth guard at all visits and help the patient choose when they may need a replacement mouth guard.
A personalized mouth guard is generally not covered by dental insurance plans, but Waterside Dental Care will calculate each patient's benefits and out-of-pocket expenses. To help make personalized mouth guards affordable for our patients, Waterside Dental Care does accept quite a few forms of payment and we also offer financing plans.
