If you or your child plays a high-impact sport (such as boxing, football, soccer, wrestling, hockey, or baseball), then dentists Dr. Nam Kim and Dr. Minho Chang highly recommend investing in a custom mouth guard to protect the teeth, tongue, gums, and jaw. Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, custom mouth guards from Luminous Dental Studio will be molded and fit only for you, making it more comfortable and effective. If you want to reduce the chance of damage, we encourage you to contact Luminous Dental Studio in Frisco, TX for more information about custom mouth guards.
Mouth guards are important if you or your child plays a sport that involves any impact or has a high risk of injury. Many of our patients participate in volleyball, martial arts, football, softball, soccer, hockey, wrestling, and other contact sports. A mouth guard can be especially helpful if you have braces or dental restorations since these can easily cut your gums and the soft tissue lining your mouth. Mouth guards have also been proven to help athletes in non-contact sports (running, yoga, weight training) by decreasing tension on the jaw and alleviating wear on the enamel of the teeth from the pressure from stress grinding. Since a custom mouth guard is made especially for your needs, it typically fits better and lasts longer than stock or boil and bite mouth protectors available at sporting goods stores.

"I am normally terrified to go to the dentist and came here for the great reviews and new technology. I had the best experience I have ever had at a dentist. I felt very comfortable and even with my nerves regarding the dental work, I felt like I was being cared for with patience and kindness from my dentist. I’m very optimistic for future visits(this is a first for me)! Dr. Kim listened to my concerns, questions, and statements regarding my dental anxiety and took them into account my entire appointment. This made me feel more comfortable and helped me to get through the appointment with more ease than I have ever had."- E.F. / Google / Jul 06, 2019
"Love this place! We just moved my dad to the area due to health issues. He hasn't seen a dentist in more than 8 years. Dr. Chang was very thorough in his exam and with dealing with my dad. He explained everything and helped us set up a treatment plan. My dad was worried that it would take "too many visits" but felt that the plan was appropriate."- A.W. / Yelp / May 28, 2019

What to Expect
To create your mouth guard, Dr. Kim or Dr. Chang will take a series of 3D digital impressions to make a mold of your mouth. Your impressions will be sent off to a dental laboratory where your mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once made and sent back to our office, you will come back for a fitting. Our dentists will make sure that your mouth guard fits properly and feels comfortable.
Once you receive your mouth guard, it is important to wear it while playing sports or anytime your mouth needs protection. Caring for your mouth guard will be crucial in preserving its lifespan. It is important to store it in a safe place and clean it before and after use. Dr. Kim or Dr. Chang will go over the best way to clean your mouth guard based on the materials used. You should bring it with you to every dental appointment so we can inspect its condition and tell you when a replacement is needed.
