When you or someone in your family plays a sport (like soccer, boxing, football, baseball, hockey, or wrestling), then Dr. James Mills strongly suggests a custom-made mouth guard to help shield your gums, teeth, and jawbone. Compared to store-bought generic mouth guards, custom-made mouth guards from Market Common Dentistry will be crafted and adjusted for you, which makes it even more effective and comfortable. If you wish to decrease the probability of harm to your mouth, we invite you to contact Market Common Dentistry in Myrtle Beach, SC to learn more about custom-made mouth guards.
Professionally made mouth guards are helpful if you or a member of your family participates in a sport with a high risk of injury or frequent contact. A number of our patients take part in martial arts, football, volleyball, hockey, softball, soccer, wrestling, and other sports. A professionally made mouth guard may be particularly useful when you have dental restorations or braces because these can cut your gums, as well as the soft tissues in your mouth. Mouth guards also have been demonstrated to assist athletes in sports without contact (jogging, yoga, weight lifting) by reducing strain on the jawbone. Since a custom-made mouth guard has been created specifically for your goals, it usually matches better and lasts longer compared to boil and bite or stock mouth guards bought at sporting goods shops.
"Christine is a fabulous dental hygienist. Am NOT a fan of going-to-the-dentist (after having to have ALL my baby teeth pulled as a child; then, a decade+ of orthodontia and fillings (since we had no fluoride on our water, i.e. deemed a Communist conspiracy in the ’50s); then on to several decades of periodontal treatments/root canals/crowns and (elective) veneers...aside from wisdom teeth extractions.I swear, I have spent a large part of my life in a dental chair. (I have financed, I conjecture, the sailboats and antique collections of previous dentists) Thus, I have deep-rooted disquietude whenever I have to go to the dentist.That being said, although I still do not wake up w. a spring-in-my-step on days when I have a dental appt, Christine and Dr. Mills do their very best to make my visits (every 3 months) beyond bearable.I highly recommend Market Common Dentistry--for their skill, long-term care plans, and comfort during treatments."- M.R. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2020

What to Expect
For the first step in making your mouth guard, Dr. Mills will take a collection of physical or digital impressions. Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab where professionals will make your mouth guard using high-quality, durable materials. Once finished and delivered to our practice, you will return to our office to get your guard fitted. Dr. Mills will ensure your mouth guard fits correctly and is comfortable.
As soon as you get your guard, it is very important to wear it during sports or if your mouth requires extra protection. Taking care of your mouth guard will be critical in maintaining its lifespan. It is also important to keep it in a secure location and wash it before and after every use. Dr. Mills will explain the ideal method to wash your mouth guard, depending on the substances used. You should bring your guard to each dental appointment so Dr. Mills can check its current state and also let you know when a new one is necessary.
