About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dentist, like our dentists in Spring, TX, can be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. hockey and football) or activities that may involve falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, using a mouth guards has also been proven to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the release of hormones that can limit endurance, strength, and reaction time. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at Imperial Oaks Dental Care are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last longer, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.
"I recently had my teeth cleaned at Imperial Oaks and I can honestly say that it was one of the best dental experiences I've had in a while. The hygienist, Pamelia, was very thorough in her explanation of the my options, each process, and after-care. She was very professional and made sure that I was comfortable."- T.K. / Yelp / Oct 09, 2019
"Generally I go to Fairfield Dental Care and Orthodontics to see Dr. Ng for my braces, I needed an emergency appointment to fix my broken bracket and Dr. Ng was at this location for the day. Without hesitation, they told me to come in right away and they will work me into the schedule to be seen. They were very busy but I was there for no more than 35 minutes, as a last minute emergency appointment. Amazing staff, clean environment and I couldn’t have been more thankful that they allowed me to come in."- S. / Google / Jul 24, 2019

What to Expect
To customize the mouth guard, our dentists take a series of digital X-rays and impressions for the dental laboratory where advanced technology and high quality materials will be used to create the patient's unique mouth guard. Once the mouth guard is sent back to Imperial Oaks Dental Care in Spring, TX, our dentists will adjust the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will go over all mouth guard care instructions, including the best way to clean and store the mouth guard. To ensure the wear and fit of the guard is adjusted as needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to all of their scheduled appointments at Imperial Oaks Dental Care. With proper use and care, a mouth guard can last up to eight years, but our dentists will check the mouth guard regularly and help each patient decide when to get a replacement.
A custom mouth guard is usually not covered by dental insurance plans, but Imperial Oaks Dental Care will confirm each patient's benefits and out-of-pocket expenses.
