Mouth Guards

What are Mouth Guards?

We offer custom-fitted sports mouth guards for patients who play close contact sports. Without a mouth guard, you’re risking the health of your teeth and smile. If you get hit in the face, your teeth can easily break, crack, and shatter, causing severe pain and discomfort. Unfortunately, most generic mouth guards aren’t specially fitted to patients’ smiles, leaving gaps and spaces, while providing an ill fit. This is why a custom-made mouth guard is the best option in protecting your teeth.

Why are Mouth Guards needed?

If you or a child plays close contact sports, we’ll recommend that a mouth guard is worn. The mouth guard protects the teeth in a few different ways. Not only does it protect the front of the smile from impact, but it provides a cushion between the upper and lower teeth in the event of clenching. Mouth guards are durable, and can last for years before replacement may be needed.

Who is a good candidate for Mouth Guards?

Any patient who plays sports can and should have a mouth guard made. These guards protect against trauma to the teeth and mouth. They are comfortable to wear because they’re custom-fitted to the mouth. Mouth guards can be made in a range of different colors so that they match your unique style.

What happens during the procedure to make Mouth Guards?

We begin the process by taking impressions of your teeth and mouth. These molds are used to make the actual mouth guard that you’ll wear. Your second appointment involves being fitted for these guards. We will adjust the fit and bite as necessary, and will instruct you on how to wear them. It is important that you bring the mouth guards with you any time you’re planning on playing sports. If the guards show any signs of wear, it’s important to have them replaced before continuing to wear them to ensure your teeth are fully protected.

If you think you might need a mouth guard or have a child who will benefit from the appliance, call our office today and we will be happy to schedule an appointment.

CORONAVIRUS HEALTH UPDATE

Our dear patients,

We hope that this message reaches you well and in good spirits during this trying time. As this global pandemic continues to run its course, we sincerely hope that you are doing your best to take care of yourself physically and mentally. While we are unable to operate business as usual, we are still here for you in cases of emergency. If you find that you are experiencing dental pain, tooth fracture, uncontrolled oral bleeding, and/or extreme sensitivity, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 404-549-2650. We are available for virtual consults or will get you scheduled to come into the office.

Unfortunately, we will be operating in this limited fashion for an uncertain amount of time and will be sure to notify you once it is safe to continue non-emergency treatment. Here, at Brookhaven Dental Group, we have always practiced CDC and OSHA standards of infection and will continue to operate only under their direction.

In the spirit of a line from a poem that China sent to Italy, “We are all waves from the same sea.” Meaning that no matter where you are or how this pandemic may be affecting you, we’re all in it together. The ebb and flow of life right now is not what we’re used to but staying in place is necessary to get us to our new normal quicker.

Thank you to each one of you for being such a vital part of the reason why BDG just celebrated 2 years of being in practice. We’re here when you need us and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Be well,
Dr. Brown
