Dental Mouthguard in Waukee, IA

A mouth guard is an important device that should be considered an essential piece of sports gear for anyone who plays a contact sport. A mouth guard is a small device that is placed over the teeth to protect them from injuries that might result from physical impact. Athletes who take part in rigorous sports involving physical contact wear mouth guards to prevent damage from blunt force to the mouth and jaw area.

Mouth guards help to absorb the majority of the shock from the impact of a blow, thus, keeping the user safe. Injuries like chipped teeth, tooth fractures, loss of teeth, cracked jaws, oral/soft tissue lacerations, and general structural damage can be prevented with mouth guards.

What Types of Mouth Guards are Available?

There are three major types of mouth guards available today:

  • Stock mouth guards: These are inexpensive mouth guards that can be bought and worn as-is. They do not require any preparation before they are used and can be bought at a sports store or pharmacy. They provide the least level of protection.
  • Boil and bite mouth guards: These can also be bought at a sports store. They provide a more seamless fit around your teeth and gums than the stock mouth. They made of thermoplastic which is softened in hot water and fit around your mouth by applying slight pressure.
  • Custom-made mouth guards: These are the best types of mouth guards because they are made from the impression of the patient by the dentist. These are the types of mouth guards we offer at Lush Family Dental in Waukee. They provide the most protection and comfort of all three types.
