Mouthguards An Overview
Remember, teeth can not grow back. Protect yours with a custom fit sports mouthguard.
Mouthguards are an easy way to protect your whole family’s teeth and gums from damage or loss during sports. Custom fit mouthguards are ideal for athletes of all ages.
Custom mouthguards offer superior protection and comfort in comparison to over the counter options. Some studies show that mouthguards can even help athletes perform better than when wearing a “bite-and-fit” mouthguard from the store. Custom mouthguards fit better and have less chance of dislodging during play so that athletes can focus on the game, not on their mouthguards. Custom mouthguards allow patients to drink while wearing the device. There is less chance of misplacing the mouthguard during practice.

I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Ahrabi. I've gone to him every six months for my regular cleanings for about three years now. Dr. A is super-friendly, as is the rest of his staff. He explains everything he does…Joshua D.
