Customized Bite Guards and Sports Mouth Guards

Our Newport Beach Dentist Can Help You Protect Your Teeth

At Luminous Smiles, we offer custom bite guards and sports mouth guards to patients of all ages. There are many reasons people choose bite guards to protect their teeth, and customized mouth guards offer a viable solution that is often more effective than over the counter mouth guard options. Once your dentist has determined that a bite guard is right for your situation, a mold will be taken of your mouth and a dental lab will use your oral impression to create a bite guard that is custom fitted to your mouth.

Bite guards are often prescribed to protect:

  • Teeth from nighttime grinding and chronic clenching
  • Teeth, cheeks, and tongue during sports and/or high-impact activities
  • Delicate bridgework or other dental work
  • Lips and cheeks from metal braces

To find out if a bite guard is right for you or your child’s situation, schedule an appointment with our Newport Beach dentist. Call Luminous Smiles at (949) 247-8484.

Why Are Sports Mouth Guards Important?

In high-contact sports, such as football or boxing, there is a greater risk of injury occurring to the mouth and teeth. A sports mouth guard can help you protect the lips, gums, cheeks, tongue, and teeth in the event of an accident. Customized mouth guards are also more comfortable as they are specifically fitted to your mouth and often, with proper care, will last longer than over the counter guards.

If you or your child plays a high-contact or high-impact sport, sports mouth guards can provide valuable protection in the event of an accident or other sports-related trauma to the mouth and teeth. While available over the counter, a customized sports mouth guard can provide long-term, effective protection. Our sports mouth guard dentist in Newport Beach can answer any questions you may have and help you determine if a customized sports mouth guard would be beneficial to you or your child.

How Do I Care for My Bite Guard?

Once our Newport Beach dentist has determined that a bite guard or mouth guard is appropriate for your situation, and the guard has been created, our team of caring, dedicated dental professionals will educate you on the proper care procedures for your new dental device. It is recommended that you keep your mouth guard in a protective case when you are not wearing it, that you wash it after use, and that you occasionally sanitize your mouth guard by soaking it in warm, soapy water. Additionally, if you are purchasing a sports mouth guard for your child or teen, we will help you update and replace their mouth guard as they grow to accommodate any changes in their teeth and jaw.
