When participating in sports and other physical activities, the last thing a person should have to worry about is protecting his or her teeth. That’s exactly why Scottsdale, AZ dentist Dr. Rod Gore, customizes mouth guards for their patients. Scientifically tested and durable, these mouth guards are made ultra-thin to be comfortable and strong enough to withstand large amounts of physical contact. Mouth guards are a great way to protect the teeth from chipping, cracking, and breaking during practice and while involved in sports like soccer, basketball, and hockey. Dr. Gore constructs each mouth guard to perfectly fit the patient for optimum protection.

What to Expect
Once the dentist decides the type of mouth guard that will be created for the patient, a series of digital x-rays and dental impressions will be taken to send to the dental laboratory. At the dental lab, a custom mouth guard will be crafted from high-quality materials and sent back to the dentist’s office. The dentist will check the mouth guard for proper fit and bite and make minor adjustments for the patient’s comfort.
Patients should carefully follow all care instructions the dentist gives them for their mouth guard, including cleaning and storage. The mouth guard should be brought to all future dental appointments so the dentist can check the wear and fit of the guard over time. Depending on how the mouth guard is used, it may last up to 8 years, but the dentist will let the patient know when it is time for a new mouth guard.
The cost depends on the materials used and whether the patient needs upper only or upper and lower mouth guards. During the consultation, the dentist will go over the patient’s dental concerns and their goals for their mouth guard and then help determine the best mouth guard for their situation.
