Mouth Guards in

Mouth guards are special oral appliances that are worn by athletes who play contact sports. By wearing one of these devices, an individual is much less likely to sustain a serious oral injury or experience major dental damage.

Sports Mouth Guards in Mustang

With the widespread prevalence of injuries in sports, taking every precaution possible is extremely important. That is why we strongly urge any patient who participates in contact sports or activities to consider the use of a mouth guard.

Some of the injuries that can be prevented by using a mouth guard include:

  • Lost and damaged teeth
  • Serious structural damage
  • Oral lacerations
  • Concussions

The mouth guards we offer at Buffalo Creek Dental are custom-made to provide an optimal fit. This helps to ensure maximum comfort and protection. We build our mouth guards from high-quality, lightweight materials in order to prevent them from causing interference with the user’s normal breathing or speaking; however, they still offer impressive strength and durability to withstand frequent use.

As custom-made devices, a patient will need to make two visits to our practice to receive an athletic mouth guard. During the first visit, we take impressions of the patient’s teeth. We then forward these impressions to a dental laboratory so that the appliance can be built. Once the device is ready, the patient can return to have the mouth guard fitted. Our mouth guards are suitable for recreational and professional athletes of all skill levels, and they can be used by both children and adults.

Buffalo Creek Dental also offers a protective guard that is used for treating bruxism, a condition that occurs when a person unknowingly clenches and grinds their teeth while they are asleep. Night guards can help prevent serious dental damage that can arise when this problem occurs. Studies have shown that night guards can greatly reduce the risk of chipped and cracked teeth, jaw discomfort, frequent headaches, tooth fractures and damaged tooth enamel.

Dr. Barnes is amazing. My daughter and I have been going to him for years and I seriously can’t recommend him enough. He and his entire staff are so friendly and always make us feel welcome. No one likes going to the dentist, but we always have a great experience!

They are really nice, matter-of-fact and worked very well with my family who is scared of the dentist. Also took my 3 year old and he did so good and he was able to watch tv above the chair - relaxed him a bit! Definitely recommend them to Mustang and surrounding area people!
