About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dentist, like our dentists in Highlands Ranch, CO, can be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. martial arts and football) or activities that may involve falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, using a mouth guards has also been proven to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the release of hormones that can limit strength, reaction time, and endurance. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at Rock Canyon Dental Care are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last longer, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.
"We recently moved to Denver from Texas and were looking to get re-established with a dentist. I heard great things about Dr. Le and decided to give his office a try. It was a bit of a drive from Denver Metro area, but it was definitely worth the drive. Dr. Le and his staff were incredible and did a very thorough job. So happy to have found my new dentist."- D.N. / Google / Jul 19, 2019
"This dental practice is fantastic and they all are awesome!!! "I love going to the dentist said no one ever" but I have lived in the Ranch since 98' and trust me when I say I have been through a few (good, bad or indifferent)! If you want to feel at ease, someone to listen without judgment and be on the same page as yourself, then Rock Canyon is for you! Just walking in the door is comfortable from the get go, Dr. Le is a hoot! Also you just feel like you're part of the neighborhood..."- S.N. / Google / Jun 13, 2019
"I’ve been coming to this location for a couple years now. It’s not close to me so I go out of my way (45 minutes) to come here. The staff is always friendly and always helpful. I’ve done standard dental cleanings, wisdom tooth extraction and most recently decided on a night guard through them. I feel like I get up to date information on my oral care & health, every time I go in there. And while I’ve switched dental plans three times, they have accepted all three so far! Highly recommended!"- J.R. / Google / Jun 09, 2019

What to Expect
To customize the mouth guard, our dentists take a series of digital X-rays and impressions for the dental laboratory where advanced technology and high quality materials will be used to create the patient's unique mouth guard. Once the mouth guard is sent back to Rock Canyon Dental Care in Highlands Ranch, CO, our dentists will adjust the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will go over all mouth guard care instructions, including the best way to clean and store the mouth guard. To ensure the wear and fit of the guard is adjusted as needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to all of their cleaning appointments at Rock Canyon Dental Care. With proper care, a mouth guard can last up to eight years, but our dentists will check the mouth guard regularly and help each patient decide when to get a replacement.
A custom mouth guard is usually not covered by dental insurance plans, but Rock Canyon Dental Care will confirm each patient's benefits and out-of-pocket expenses. To help make custom mouth guards more affordable for our patients, Rock Canyon Dental Care does accept many forms of payment and we also offer financing plans.
