About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dental professional, such as our dentists in San Antonio, TX, may be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. hockey and football) 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 endurance, strength, and reaction time. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics 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 The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics in San Antonio, TX, 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 scheduled appointments at The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics. With good use and care, 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.
A custom-made mouth guard is typically not paid by insurance companies, however The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics will determine every individual's benefits and personal expenses. To help make custom-made mouth guards reasonably priced for our patients, The Rim Dental Care and Orthodontics does take several methods of payment and we also have financing plans.
