About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Canton, OH, may be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or other sports that can have a high risk of injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the production of hormones that can constrain strength, endurance, and reaction time. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Belden Plaza are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last for a longer time, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.

What to Expect
To make the mouth guard, our dentists will take a collection of digital X-rays and physical impressions for the dental workshop where sophisticated equipment and superior resources will be used to craft the patient's custom mouth guard. As soon as the mouth guard is returned to DentalWorks - Belden Plaza in Canton, OH, our dentists will fit the mouth guard for the patient's ideal fit and the most secure bite.
Our dentists will explain all mouth guard maintenance guidelines, particularly the ideal method to wash and carry the mouth guard. To confirm the fit and wear of the guard is fine-tuned when needed, the patient should take their mouth guard to each of their appointments at DentalWorks - Belden Plaza. With good care and use, a mouth guard can be kept as many as 5 - 8 years, so our dentists will examine the mouth guard frequently and help every patient determine when they need a new mouth guard.
