About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Aurora, CO, may be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. football and martial arts) or activities that may have a high risk of falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the production of hormones that can limit reaction time, strength, and endurance. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at Windsor Dental Care are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last for a longer time, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.

What to Expect
To customize the mouth guard, our dentists will take a series of digital X-rays and impressions for the dental laboratory where advanced equipment and high quality materials will be used to create the patient's unique mouth guard. Once the mouth guard is sent back to Windsor Dental Care in Aurora, CO, our dentists will adjust the mouth guard for the patient's ideal fit and the most secure bite.
Our dentists will go over all mouth guard care instructions, including the best way to wash and store the mouth guard. To ensure the fit and wear of the guard is adjusted as needed, the patient should take their mouth guard to all of their exams and cleanings at Windsor Dental Care. With proper care and wear, a mouth guard can last up to eight years, so our dentists will check the mouth guard regularly and help each patient decide when to get a replacement.
A custom mouth guard is usually not paid by insurance companies, however Windsor Dental Care will confirm every individual's benefits and personal expenses. To help make custom mouth guards more affordable for our patients, Windsor Dental Care does take many methods of payment and we also have financing plans.
