If you or your child plays a sport (for example, football, boxing, soccer, hockey, wrestling, or baseball), dentist William Shattuck strongly suggests a custom-made athletic mouth guard to shield the gums, teeth, and jawbone. Compared to store-bought generic mouth guards, customized mouth guards from Radiant Dental Care will be crafted and adjusted for you, which makes them even more effective and comfortable. Plus, they are custom designed for your particular sport.
These mouth guards have been shown to do much more than provide tooth protection, such as reduce cortisol release during activity, which improves performance and reduces recovery time. They have also been shown to reduce stress-induced adrenaline surges and reduce the risk of concussion by passively activating the supporting neck muscles to better support the head during contact sports. If you would like to decrease the danger of harm to your mouth, we invite you to contact Radiant Dental Care in Haslet, TX to learn more about custom-made mouth guards.
Custom mouth guards are helpful if you or your child participates in a sport with a high risk of injury or frequent contact. A number of our patients take part in football, volleyball, martial arts, soccer, softball, hockey, wrestling, and more. A custom-made mouth guard may be particularly beneficial if you have dental restorations or braces, because these can cut your gums as well as the soft tissues in your mouth. Mouth guards have also been shown to assist athletes in sports without contact (jogging, yoga, weight lifting) by reducing strain on the jawbone. Since a custom-made mouth guard has been created specifically for your goals, it generally matches better and lasts longer compared to boil-and-bite or stock mouth guards bought at sporting goods shops.
"The best dentist and dental office ever. I went in for a consult about a tooth that had been pulled by another dentist and after the doctors diving into my dental history about my TMJ and he offered treatment not a bandaid. I am so happy to be doing Invisalign to straighten my teeth and fix my cross bite causing the TMJ issues. I am now more pain free and lessened headaches. I followed all his instructions and recommendations and what was supposed to take 18-24 months is only been 12 months and soon will be over and into retainers and mouth guard. I am so happy i found Radiant Dental. Without him i would be hooked on muscles relaxers that really did not help and may have needed surgery to correct my TMJ. Yes thank you and the staff is amazing. They help me and offered suggestions and advise with any questions i had from Invisalign to billing questions and concerns. This is the best place ever and I know that my husband who recommended them to me and he hates dentists but loves this place!

What to Expect
For the first step in making your mouth guard, Dr. Shattuck will use a high-precision, positive-pressure vacuum former to create impressions of your teeth. Your impressions will be used to custom craft your mouth guard from high-quality, durable materials. Once your mouth guard is complete, you will return to our practice to get your guard fitted.

When you get your guard, it's crucial to wear it during sports or whenever your mouth requires extra protection. Taking care of your mouth guard will be critical in maintaining its lifespan.
