About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Dublin, OH, may be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or activities that may have a high risk of falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the production of hormones that can limit strength, endurance, and reaction time. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Dublin are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last for a longer time, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.
"I was in town for the Memorial Tournament and a tooth cracked. It was terribly painful. The staff got me right in and took great care of me in a time of need. Super experience. Dr Lee was very nice and fit me into a busy schedule. 5 stars!!"- M.B. / Google / Jun 08, 2019
"My appointment went wonderfully! I was going in for a laser treatment, and the staff was very kind. The treatment itself was very reasonably priced, and I'm already feeling better- just 24 hours later. I'd say this office is a good place whether you're looking for a new dentist or just going for a simple procedure. They had me in and out in an hour- and it's only because I had to fill out some paperwork and contact my dental insurance for some id information. If you are prepared, then you'd be in and out even faster. Thanks again Dr. Jing Li and staff!"- S.P. / Google / Apr 30, 2019
