What are mouth guards?

Do you live a fairly active lifestyle? Are your children involved in sports? Then it may be time to consider a mouth guard to guarantee the health and safety of your family’s smiles. Mouth guards are dental appliances used to protect your teeth from dental trauma or accidents. Our talented dentists, Dr. Carolyn Walker and Dr. Clarian Lannom, offer custom-made mouth guards at Carolyn Walker. After taking molds and impressions of your smile, we create a mouth guard from flexible, comfortable plastic that will fit snugly over your teeth and gums for the ultimate protection.
