About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dentist, like our dentists in Chicago, IL, can be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or other sports that can involve injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the release of hormones that can constrain strength, endurance, and reaction time. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last longer, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.

"My Experience here is great. Above that I’m a new patient. My original dentist is no longer available so I went looking for a new one close to work where I won’t have to leave work early and lose pay. The staff is amazing and beyond helpful and very forward on what is needed for me to take care of myself.UPDATE - I don’t publish feedback unless I mean it. So here it goes. They are still the best! 💪 ❤️ I was out for a year traveling for work and by keeping up with my health and using the necessary tools to stay healthy; as suggested, I was happy to come back for my check up and cleaning. The staff, as always, is Fabulous and the communication with patients is top notch! I recommend anyone who wants a new dentist! I literally now look forward to the dentist... and not many people say that!"- G.H. / Google / Nov 23, 2019

What to Expect
To make the mouth guard, our dentists take a collection of digital X-rays and physical impressions for the dental workshop where sophisticated technology and superior resources will be used to craft the patient's custom mouth guard. As soon as the mouth guard is returned to DentalWorks - Chicago Loop in Chicago, IL, our dentists will fit the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.

To confirm the wear and fit of the guard is fine-tuned when needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to each of their appointments at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop.
