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.

"I had two teeth pulled, absolutely no pain. People there were very friendly and caring. Great place. I called in the afternoon, and the very next morning, I was seen and taking care of. I had been to a different dentist who had told me all my teeth needed to come out, so I was quite happy to only have to loose two. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you"- E.B. / Yelp / May 05, 2021

"I have a 30 year fear of going to the dentist, And I was 100% comfortable with Dr. Mills. He was kind compassionate and understanding of my fears. He also took the time to really listen but not only to listen but hear what I was saying to understand where those fears came from.The staff there was very friendly and accommodating as well. I have had consultations with many other practices and dentists etc. and for one reason or another it was a let down.For the first time I am looking forward to Improving my smile and getting the work done to improve my mental health."- S. / Google / Apr 11, 2021
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.
