What is a mouth guard?

A mouth guard is a plastic retainer that completely encases either the upper or lower arch of your smile in order to form a protective shield. At Dennis K. Sacry, DDS, PC, we generally suggest mouth guards to our athletic patients. During high-intensity or contact sports, such as football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, and rugby, teeth are easily damaged. A mouth guard helps protect your smile and keep it beautiful. There are many types of mouth guards available, and Dr. Dennis Sacry will help you decided what kind of mouth guard would be best for your individual needs.

What type of mouth guard do I need?

We may suggest a one-size-fits-all mouth guard, which suits any smile and is immediately available. This type of mouth guard is often bulkier when compared to others. Generally, we suggest having a custom mouth guard made to ensure your individual smile is protected and comfortable. But no matter the type of mouth guard in Whitehall, Montana that you choose, we will make sure you will be pleased with the results.
