child puts in his mouth a custom mouthguard

Mouthguards are an important piece of equipment for those involved in recreational and athletic events. Protecting the teeth is as essential to oral health as brushing and flossing are. Having teeth knocked out or injured affects more than just your appearance – it also affects how you speak, eat, and the overall health of your entire mouth. Mouthguards minimize the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your tongue, jaw, and entire face. They are designed to help cushion a blow to the face while protecting the soft tissues inside the mouth. Gainesville Dental Group provides customized mouthguards as part of our family dentistry treatments to our patients who play any type of contact sport.

Custom Mouthguards

Yes, you can drive down the road to the closest drug store and purchase a mouthguard that promises protection with a “one size fits all” selling tag. However, if you just took the time to observe a hand full of people, you would see how different each one of their mouths are. Now, would you still want a “one size fits all” mouthguard? The dental specialists at Gainesville Dental Group can provide custom mouthguards to our patients that are designed specifically for the shape of their mouths. With custom mouthguards, the personalized fit and placement helps to ensure that your teeth, gums, tongue, jawbone, and soft tissues are protected in order to minimize the risk of oral injury.

Protect Your Teeth with Athletic Mouthguards

Mouthguards are vitally important to the health of your mouth during any athletic event. Contact injuries during football, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, gymnastics, cheerleading and other sports are all too common. Protecting the teeth with athletic mouthguards should be a standard action from an early age. As soon as your child puts on his or her uniform, the athletic mouthguard should also be placed in the mouth. Protecting the teeth is vital in promoting the long-term health of the mouth. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Our Patient Reviews

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

Dennis C.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

Sarah R.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Linda H.

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Bruce Y.

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
