About Sports Mouth Guards
At ACE Dental of Texas, we understand that sports and physical activities are a major part of our patients' lives. To help protect your family's smiles and oral health, we are pleased to offer custom-made sports mouth guards made of the highest quality materials. Athletic mouth guards are worn between the upper and lower teeth during sports and help minimize damage to the jaw, teeth, and gums during physical strain or impact. Compared to generic mouth guards bought at the store, custom mouth guards from ACE Dental are molded for each individual, making these dental appliances more comfortable and effective for patients of all ages. Whether you or your loved ones play high- or low-impact sports, we invite you to contact our family dental practice to learn more about custom-made mouth guards.

"I like this place better compared to others in Taylor. I know is small and not luxurious but the coupons saved us money. You don't see or hear rivalry or gossiping within the assistants while you are waiting for your turn and your service. They treat each other politely so creates a relaxing atmosphere. The Dr is very meticulous analyzing x-rays and she explains everything to you in a gentle manner and does her best to be on time with you and spend the necessary time working in your mouth not in a rush but very professional no matter the schedule. We'll keep going there as long as they keep up with the good service."- N.T. / Yelp / May 23, 2019

Who Should Wear an Athletic Mouth Guard?
Wearing a mouth guard is essential for children, teens, and adults who engage in any type of sport, from volleyball, football, and martial arts to hockey, soccer, wrestling, and more. Mouth guards are also important for athletes who participate in non-contact sports, such as running, yoga, and weight lifting, by decreasing strain on the jaw. A custom-made mouth guard can be especially helpful if you have braces or dental restorations, which may cause injury to the soft tissues or become damaged should impact occur. Since a custom mouth guard is made for each individual, it usually fits better and lasts longer than boil-and-bite mouthpieces available at sporting goods stores.
What Is the Mouth Guard Process?
To create a custom sports mouth guard, the ACE Dental team will take impressions of the upper and lower teeth using advanced digital technology. These impressions will be sent off to a dental lab where your mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once your appliance is ready and delivered to our office, we will ask you to return to have your athletic mouth guard fitted. Custom mouth guards are designed to be worn over the upper or lower teeth (depending on the design) and may be adjusted for a comfortable yet snug fit.
Caring for Your Dental Appliance
As soon as you get your mouth guard, it is crucial to wear it while playing sports or when your mouth needs protection. Cleaning for your mouth guard after every use and storing it in a safe place will help maintain its lifespan. Our team will explain the best way to clean your dental appliance, depending on the materials from which it is made. We suggest that you bring it with you to every dental appointment at ACE Dental so our practitioners can evaluate its condition. Custom athletic mouth guards may last for many years when cared for properly; however, children may require a new appliance as their jaws grow and develop.
Insurance Coverage for Athletic Guards
Custom mouth guards may be partially covered under some dental insurance plans. If you carry insurance, we will contact your company to find out your exact benefits and calculate your personal costs. ACE Dental accepts several payment methods and can help you apply for low-interest medical financing. In your consultation, our team will talk with you about your options and help you find a budget-friendly solution to protect your family's smiles.
