Athletes and Mouth Guards

Wearing a mouth guard while playing a sport protects the teeth from dental damage, trauma, and may also prevent concussions. For optimal protection, the mouth guard should be comfortable, resistant to tearing and ripping, and ultimately resilient. Dr. Gregory Ross, DDS can fit patients for custom-fitted mouth guards so that you can finish the game without the worry of knocking out a tooth.  

Custom mouth guards are made from exact and precise models of an individual’s own teeth. They are also made of resilient and tear resistant materials ensuring a proper fit. A properly fitted mouth guard absolutely must be protective, comfortable, resilient, tear resistant, odorless, tasteless, and allow room for you to breathe. Because our custom-fitted mouth guards are made for your mouth and your mouth only, they are more reliable than over-the-counter mouth guards.
