Mouth Guards in

Mouth guards are dental appliances that protect the teeth from damage or excessive wear. They cover the teeth and offer protection to the lips, tongue and cheek lining.

Although mouth guards are typically used by athletes and players of contact sports, they can also protect the teeth of people who have the habit of clenching and grinding their teeth at night.

Mouth guards can be easily found over-the-counter at sports stores, but these varieties are not comfortable for most people as they are made according to a standard size and may not offer the best protection due to an improper fit. They also tend to be bulky and can interfere with your breathing and speech.

The best type of mouth guards for increased protection and comfort are those that are custom-made for your needs. Dentistry of East Sacramento offers high-quality mouthguards crafted using lightweight materials. These are prepared by taking an impression of your teeth and sending it to a dental laboratory to create your mouth guard. This will ensure that it fits you perfectly and is comfortable.

Caring for your Mouth Guard

  • Keep your mouth guard away from heat.
  • Store and carry your mouth guard in a sturdy, ventilated container.
  • Check for wear and tear to see if it needs to be replaced
  • Occasionally clean the mouthguard in cool, soapy water, rinse thoroughly and allow it to air dry. You should also rinse your mouth guard before and after each use, or brush using a toothbrush and toothpaste.

The (all women) staff is extremely warm and welcoming from the moment you enter. This is probably the best dentist experience I've had here in Sacramento. Definitely check them out!

I had the same dentist for over 20 years and was anxious about switching ( for a closer one). I'm glad To did. The doctor was super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I had my appointment at 5 PM (didn't need to miss work) and she offered to do my filling right then and there after she did all the cleaning. My husband really liked her too and got an early AM appointment. I highly highly recommend!!!!!!
