About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Huntersville, NC, may be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. martial arts and football) or activities that may have a high risk of falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the production of hormones that can limit strength, reaction time, and endurance. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Northcross Village are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last for a longer time, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.

"Exceptional patient care! The moment I arrived, kind and courteous office staff awaited me. The entire appointment was everything (and more) a dental visit should be. The office staff, technicians, hygienist, and dentist are kind, professional, honest and knowledgeable about every facet of dentistry. I have made an appointment for my daughter and husband as well.

"I don't even know where to begin, I just want to brag about this dental staff from a Dental Phobic perspective. Can we say WOW? Long story short, In an emergency, I had called this office and ultimately had to have a tooth extracted. Dental Fear for me is like "death"! LOL I can tell everyone, Jaime (front desk), Jessica (Ofc. Mgr.), Dr. Veders(Dentist) Deena, (Dental Assistant), Emily (Dental Asst.) Vanessa (Front Desk), Kostace (Dental Hygienist) were incredible during the extraction/follow -up and new patient exam. They ALL understood my fear and put me at ease pretty quickly. Yesterday at my new patient exam, I had a great time! I have never had the opportunity to say that with any dentist anytime in my life! We joked, I was educated and I was UNAFRAID! Please if you experience this phobic condition...Your dental staff should care about you as a whole person, not just a mouth on a conveyor belt. Not only the fear was gone, But they do a great job with all of the dental procedures and it is not agonizing either! I am quite sure that I have found my forever dentist! Thanks to all of you at Dental Works in Northcross Village/Huntersville!"- C.T. / Google / May 03, 2018

What to Expect
To customize the mouth guard, our dentists will take a series of digital X-rays and impressions for the dental laboratory where advanced equipment and high quality materials will be used to create the patient's unique mouth guard. Once the mouth guard is sent back to DentalWorks - Northcross Village in Huntersville, NC, our dentists will adjust the mouth guard for the patient's ideal fit and the most secure bite.
Our dentists will go over all mouth guard care instructions, including the best way to wash and store the mouth guard. To ensure the fit and wear of the guard is adjusted as needed, the patient should take their mouth guard to all of their cleaning appointments at DentalWorks - Northcross Village. With proper care, a mouth guard can last up to eight years, so our dentists will check the mouth guard regularly and help each patient decide when to get a replacement.
