About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom built by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Austin, TX, may be used to shield the teeth and gums while enjoying contact sports (i.e. martial arts and football) or other activities that often have a high risk of falling or injury (i.e. biking and skating). In addition to defending the jaw, teeth, and gums, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to boost athletic performance by lowering stress, which diminishes the production of hormones that can restrict strength, reaction time, and endurance. Even though generic mouth guards are priced lower, custom built mouth guards from our dentists at Parmer Dental Care are created from superior quality ingredients, fit more snuggly, last for a longer time, and give more reliable protection, which can prevent high-priced dental services.

What to Expect
To personalize the mouth guard, our dentists will take a set of digital X-rays and molds for the dental lab where progressive equipment and top-quality supplies will be used to build the patient's personalized mouth guard. When the mouth guard is shipped back to Parmer Dental Care in Austin, TX, our dentists will fine-tune the mouth guard for the patient's ideal fit and the most secure bite.
Our dentists will talk to the patient about all mouth guard use information, such as the proper technique to wash and keep the mouth guard. To make sure the fit and wear of the guard is modified if needed, the patient should take their mouth guard to every one of their cleaning appointments at Parmer Dental Care. With ideal care, a mouth guard can be worn for 6 - 8 years, so our dentists will assess the mouth guard at all visits and help the patient choose when they may need a replacement mouth guard.
A personalized mouth guard is generally not paid by insurance companies, however Parmer Dental Care will calculate every individual's benefits and personal expenses. To help make personalized mouth guards affordable for our patients, Parmer Dental Care does take quite a few methods of payment and we also have financing plans.
