Written by Dr. Grayem on Mar 22, 2022

Protecting your smile from sudden dental damage and trauma is now easier than ever before with our Saint Louis dentists. We encourage all of our patients who participate in contact and extreme sports to be fitted for personalized mouthguards. Keep reading to learn more about important considerations when it comes to protective dental gear… 


When your mouthguard is crafted to your specifications you have the peace of mind of knowing that your teeth are adequately protected in case of an accident or trauma. Your mouthguard should fit snugly and firmly over your natural teeth, so that it reliably stays in place.

Structural Support

It is also important that your protective oral appliance allows you to maintain healthy bite structure and temporomandibular joint function. Unfortunately, poorly-fit mouthguards can end up creating unnecessary structural dental problems.


Another advantage of a personalized mouthguard is that it is appreciably more comfortable than generic alternatives. We want your oral appliance to be comfortable, because we want you to actually wear it when you need it!


These mouthguards hold up to the wear and tear of an active life. The thermoplastic material we use to mold these oral appliances can also be thoroughly cleaned without degrading.

Don’t leave your dental health at risk—take control by getting high-quality, well-fitting dental guard right away. Our Saint Louis dentists can help you with any additional information and support you need!
