About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dentist, like our dentists in Coppell, TX, can be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. hockey and football) or other sports that can involve injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the release of hormones that can constrain endurance, strength, and reaction time. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at Riverchase Dental Care are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last longer, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.

"My first visit to Riverchase Dental today was great! Like most people (I'm assuming), I'm not usually a fan of going to the dentist. But I actually enjoyed going here! Every staff member I came into contact with was beyond helpful and kind. And I spoke to many people during my visit--the receptionist who checked me in; the technician who took my x-rays; the hygienest who told me what to expect when I come in for a cleaning; the dentist; and the financial specialist who checked me out. It was the first time I left the dentist's office feeling like I had no questions left unanswered. Each person was more than willing to answer my questions and ask if there was anything else I was wondering. Very thorough and comforting."- A.M. / Yelp / Jul 28, 2017

What to Expect
To make the mouth guard, our dentists take a collection of digital X-rays and physical impressions for the dental workshop where sophisticated technology and superior resources will be used to craft the patient's custom mouth guard. As soon as the mouth guard is returned to Riverchase Dental Care in Coppell, TX, our dentists will fit the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will explain all mouth guard maintenance guidelines, particularly the ideal method to clean and carry the mouth guard. To confirm the wear and fit of the guard is fine-tuned when needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to each of their scheduled appointments at Riverchase Dental Care. With good use and care, a mouth guard can be kept as many as 5 - 8 years, but our dentists will examine the mouth guard frequently and help every patient determine when they need a new mouth guard.
A custom-made mouth guard is typically not covered by dental insurance plans, but Riverchase Dental Care will determine each patient's benefits and out-of-pocket expenses. To help make custom-made mouth guards reasonably priced for our patients, Riverchase Dental Care does accept several forms of payment and we also offer financing plans.
