About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Boardman, OH, may be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. football and rugby) or other sports that can have a high risk of injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the production of hormones that can constrain endurance, reaction time, and strength. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Southern Park Boardman are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last for a longer time, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.
"I am just thrilled with the dental care I received from Dentalworks! I came in for a routine cleaning and the Hygentist did a wonderful and thorough job. She went over and above by probing a little to see if I had any issues (which I did but didn't think could be fixed) I had a root canal done 10 years ago and it had been bothering me all this time.. she set up the Dentist, with all the possibilities, and discovered that it need to be adjusted. A very slight adjustment has made all the difference to me!! Other dentists' over the years brushed it off as "phantom" pain because there was no root in the tooth. Dentalworks, and especially the Hygentist, really went the extra mile to help me with my Very Long, on-going discomfort. Thank you! God Bless!!"- C.M. / Google / Feb 12, 2018
