Mouth Guards Overview
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.
Best Candidates for 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.

"When I had my first appointment with Dr. Kim at Luminous Dental Studio, I was instantly reassured that I picked the right dentist to work with my family. He was kind and listened to my concerns about my dental anxieties. With his gentle chairside manner, Dr. Kim was easy to talk. I had some extensive work done that most dentist would rush me through, but when things didn’t go as planned... Dr. Kim kept working through it while making sure I was comfortable. Their state-of-the-art technology is really great too. The intraoral camera displayed my dental concerns front and center in the treatment room on a big screen. It was a great dental experience even though they are never easy for me. Thanks Dr. Kim. Oh, and he made sure to check up on me after my lengthy appointment to make sure I was ok... that’s awesome."- S.C. / Google / Aug 23, 2019

What to Expect with Mouth Guards
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.
Mouth Guards Follow-Up
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.
