Prevent dental injuries with a custom mouth guard from Kirkland, WA area dentist

Dr. Ann Kelley at Kingsgate Dental advises how to prevent dental injuries with a custom mouth guard from Kirkland, WA

During high contact sports such as football and soccer, it is important for patients to consider the benefits of sports mouth guards to prevent dental injuries. A simple impact to the mouth can result in substantial damage that can cost a lot—including a patient’s adult teeth! Working with a dentist in Kirkland, WA such as Dr. Ann Kelley is the first step in learning more about the benefits of using a custom mouth guard during high contact sports to protect the smile!

Why mouth guards?

Mouth guards are oral appliances patients can wear that protect the teeth while playing sports that may result in damage to the smile. This ensures the teeth are at a lower risk for damage. This includes:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Knocked out teeth
  • Injuries to the soft tissues

By wearing mouth guards, especially those that are custom made at Kingsgate Dental, patients can protect their most important investment: their smile!

Why choose custom made?

Custom made mouth guards are more durable and better fitting than those available over-the-counter at the local drugstore. These are often poor-fitted solutions that fail to provide the protection needed to prevent major dental injuries. Instead, patients are urged to visit with their dentist to have impressions made of their smile and used to create a mouth guard made specifically for them. This ensures proper fit and comfort, which in turn improves compliance with wearing the mouth guard during practice and games. Mouth guards can be made for children, teenagers, or adults who are in need of dental protection from their extracurricular activities.

 - 5 Star Rating Review I have gone to Kingsgate Dental for about two years now, and every experience has been excellent. Dr. Kelley is very knowledgeable and very thorough with her analysis of the issues that I have faced with my teeth. The staff is polite and always happy to answer any questions that I have and give me pointers to improve my dental hygiene. I will continue to go to Kingsgate Dental/Dr Kelley for years to come.

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
