About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom built by a dentist, like our dentists in Erie, CO, can be used to shield the teeth and gums while enjoying contact sports (i.e. hockey and football) or other activities that often involve falling or injury (i.e. biking and skating). In addition to defending the jaw, teeth, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to boost athletic performance by lowering stress, which diminishes the release of hormones that can restrict endurance, strength, and reaction time. Even though generic mouth guards are priced lower, custom built mouth guards from our dentists at Vista Ridge Dental Care are created from superior quality ingredients, fit more snuggly, last longer, and give more reliable protection, which can prevent high-priced dental services.
"I've been using them for 6 years now, and always get excellent care and advice. I went in for a teeth cleaning, and the hygienist took the time to explain what she was seeing, and then did an outstanding and thorough job of cleaning my teeth. Everyone has always been extremely friendly over the years."- B.D. / Google / May 03, 2019

"Just gotta say so far this place is amazing! I had taken my daughter to another dentist to get a quote for some dental work and it was outrageous! Quoted me almost 2000. I took the same quote to Vista ridge and had them evaluate her teeth and I'm only paying $15. They are super friendly and really want to help. Thank you!"- J.B. / Yelp / Apr 27, 2019

What to Expect
To personalize the mouth guard, our dentists take a set of digital X-rays and molds for the dental lab where progressive technology and top-quality supplies will be used to build the patient's personalized mouth guard. When the mouth guard is shipped back to Vista Ridge Dental Care in Erie, CO, our dentists will fine-tune the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will talk to the patient about all mouth guard use information, such as the proper technique to clean and keep the mouth guard. To make sure the wear and fit of the guard is modified if needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to every one of their scheduled appointments at Vista Ridge Dental Care. With ideal use and care, a mouth guard can be worn for 6 - 8 years, but our dentists will assess the mouth guard at all visits and help the patient choose when they may need a replacement mouth guard.
A personalized mouth guard is generally not covered by dental insurance plans, but Vista Ridge Dental Care will calculate each patient's benefits and out-of-pocket expenses. To help make personalized mouth guards affordable for our patients, Vista Ridge Dental Care does accept quite a few forms of payment and we also offer financing plans.
