About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dentist, like our dentists in Greensboro, NC, can be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) 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 strength, endurance, and reaction time. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Greensboro are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last longer, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.

Lol We have a one-year-old son who will definitely be joining us in making this our forever family dentist!!!"- M.T. / Google / Nov 06, 2017
"Dr. Aguero was a life saver for me. I had some pretty significant pain from an issue that I let go way too long. I called the office and they allowed me to walk in for treatment even though I was a "new patient". I called at 230 and was out of pain by 530. The staff was very nice and understanding. I really have zero complaints about this office. Would recommend."- D.D. / Google / Oct 16, 2017

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 DentalWorks - Greensboro in Greensboro, NC, 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 appointments at DentalWorks - Greensboro. With proper care and use, 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 DentalWorks - Greensboro will confirm each patient's benefits and out-of-pocket expenses.
