Mouth Guards in San Diego, California

At Celebrity Smile, we are dedicated to helping our patients keep their smiles healthy and strong. That’s why our team offers durable custom-fitted mouth guards for adults and children. We also offer Under Armour® mouth guards and night guards for patients who suffer from bruxism.

What Are Mouth Guards?

A properly fitted mouth guard is an essential piece of athletic equipment for athletes who participate in contact sports and other physical activities. Mouth guards are protective devices worn over your top teeth to absorb the impact from blows to the face, hard falls, contact between players, and other sports-related accidents. If you have braces, crowns, bridges or other dental repairs, Dr. Safar recommends a mouth guard to protect them.

What Are the Benefits of Mouth Guards?

Mouth guards protect your teeth, gums, and tongue from trauma and accidents during sports and other physical activities. Common sports-related injuries include broken teeth, knocked out teeth, broken tooth roots, and lacerations of the lips, gums, cheeks or tongue. In some cases, mouth guards have been shown to help reduce the risk of more severe injuries, such as broken jawbones or concussions.

Mouth guards are required equipment in contact sports such as boxing, ice hockey, field hockey, football and lacrosse. However, doctors and dentists recommend the use of mouth guards in a variety of sports and physical activities such as gymnastics, bike riding, and skateboarding. Mouth guards are also recommended for children between the ages of seven and 11.

Types of Mouth Guards

There are three types of mouth guards available to adults and children:

  • Stock mouth guards: Pre-made stock mouth guards are available at sporting goods stores and most department stores. While affordable and widely available, they are often bulky and provide little protection. Stock mouth guards may make breathing and speaking difficult due to their size.
  • Boil and bite mouth guards: This type of mouth guard is available at most sporting goods stores. Made from thermoplastic, simply boil the mouth guard to soften the material and bite down on it to shape it to fit your teeth. Boil and bite mouth guards offer more.
  • Custom-fitted mouth guards: A custom-made mouth guard is designed to your unique needs. Based on detailed impressions of your teeth and mouth, a custom-made mouth guard offers the highest degree of comfort, durability and performance. We make mouth guards for patients of all ages.

At Celebrity Smile, we also offer the ArmourBite® mouth guard from Under Armour®, a patented mouthpiece that increases airflow, strength, stamina, and focus. The ArmourBite® mouth guard features patented ArmourBite® Power Wedges™ to pivot your jaw forward when you run, lift, and train. Why? To reduce your body's production of performance-sapping cortisol, while also maximizing air intake to increase your endurance and improve your strength, speed, and reaction time.

Under Armour®’s patented T-Bar Grip Fit System custom-fits the mouth guard only on your lower teeth, which allows you to speak freely while it's in. Power, performance, and another game-changing innovation from Under Armour®. Learn more about the benefits of the ArmourBite® mouth guard and schedule an appointment with Dr. Safar.

What are Night Guards?

If you suffer from nighttime bruxism (excessive grinding or clenching of the teeth during sleep), Dr. Safar may recommend a night guard. Night guards can be worn over the teeth at night to reduce the damage to your teeth caused by bruxism. Signs of bruxism include worn teeth, jaw pain, headaches, and cracked or broken teeth.

Best experience getting my cavity filled ever! I've been to a lot of dentists in San Diego, but none make their patients more comfortable or do more careful and precise work than Celebrity Smile. I feel like I am in excellent hands here; love the dentist, the assistant, the hygienist, everyone here is 5 stars!
