What are Athletic Mouth Guards?
Braces and other orthodontic treatments are a major investment in the appearance and health of your smile, which is the reason why our dental team recommends athletic mouth guards. When playing contact sports (hockey, football, wrestling) or sports with a high likelihood of harm to your mouth (basketball, skateboarding, soccer), a custom-made mouth guard can shield your orthodontics in addition to your gums, teeth, and jaw. Schedule an appointment at Rosenberg Orthodontics in Hartford County to find out more information about athletic mouth guards that are created especially for anyone with orthodontics.

She had a tough case and Dr Rosenberg took his time with us and made sure we had an awesome result. He explained everything and couldn’t have been any nicer.

Who Needs an Orthodontic Mouth Guard?
Athletic mouth guards are made especially to fit and shield your mouth. If you have aligners, braces, or another orthodontic appliance, then you should have a mouth guard that can cover your teeth, gums, and corrective equipment. Store-bought mouth guards normally do not fit comfortably and aren't intended to work with orthodontic treatments. A number of our patients also say an ill-fitting guard pushes against their gums and teeth, which can be distracting during their sports. Our team at Rosenberg Orthodontics knows how important it is to choose the perfect protective equipment. Your mouth guard should be properly fitted to protect your teeth from trauma or injury.
How Are Mouth guards for Braces Made?
When you have made the choice to receive a mouth guard, we will take a set of pictures (electronic x-rays and dental impressions) to be sent out to a dental lab. Our mouth guards are made from high-quality substances. When the guard is ready, you can come back to get a fitting so we can make small alterations until it is fitted properly. We recommend that you begin this process well before the start of your sports season so that you can have protection without delay.
What Can I Expect With a Sports Mouth Guard?
As soon as your mouth guard is created and fitted, a member of our team will discuss with you how to look after your guard. To prolong the life span of your mouth guard, you must clean it before and after each use. It is also advisable to keep it in a secure, dry location when you are not wearing it. We request that you bring your guard with you to every appointment so that we can examine it for wear and also make suggestions for a replacement or repairs. For sports with higher contact or danger of harm, you might require a fresh guard prior to each season.
Does Insurance Cover Mouth Guards?
At your consultation, we will talk about price quotes and what payments we accept. If necessary, we can provide info about medical financing to make your mouth guard easier to afford. If you are using dental insurance, we will contact your insurer to determine your coverage before calculating your personal expenses.
