Custom Sports Mouth Guards

Risk of serious injury to an athlete’s mouth and head is a natural part of contact sports. As dental professionals, we urge those who participate in contact sports to wear a mouthguard that is properly fitted any time they are playing or practicing. This will help reduce the degree of injury from traumatic blows. A properly fitted mouthguard is one that is custom-designed to fit your teeth and bite. This is what allows for maximum protection. While a mouthguard cannot prevent injuries from occurring, they can provide protection from serious damage. We are proud to offer this preventive dentistry service in both our Mound and Chaska, MN dental offices.

For students, a mouthguard costs $35 and includes your name and school logo directly on the appliance. If interested, call West Lakes Dentistry today to reserve your time. Each athlete much have a waiver form signed by a parent or guardian before an impression can be taken.

Note that if you are currently wearing braces or using Invisalign, fee is $50 due to increased complexity.
