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.
"I confess I entered the lobby with some anxious feelings. Years of youthful neglect coming home to roost. The entire staff treated me like I was their only patient for the day; but every chair was occupied. This is the only review I have ever written. These professionals are the best! I've dropped in just to say hello. (Am I crazy to feel this way toward my dentist?) Thanks again, Dr Lee, Pink, and everyone! Sincerely, middle-aged disgruntled man."- L.R. / Google / Mar 11, 2020

"Ever since Dr. Brandon Lee has come to this Rock Canyon Dental office my overall view/experience has changed significantly. Not only is he a perfectionist when it comes to his dental work, he is by far one of the most personable professionals I've ever met! He always takes the time to catch up with me and has an amazing memory of things we have talked about in the past. Additionally, he is extremely generous as evident with his monthly drawings; this month it's a beautiful wooden table that he made himself! I can't say enough about what a great dentist/man Dr. Lee is. I only hope he doesn't have plans to leave any time soon. Thanks brother and keep up the awesome job that you do!"- M.J. / Google / Feb 16, 2020

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.
