Protect your teeth with good quality mouthguards available with Kirkland, WA area dentist

Protect Teeth with Good Quality Mouthguards Available in Kirkland Wa Area

Men, women, teenagers, and children who are involved in high impact sports such as football or soccer need to take great care in protecting their smiles. The mouth is extremely vulnerable to damage, and our team at Kingsgate Dental encourages you to protect your teeth with good quality mouthguards. Our Kirkland, WA area dentist recommends the use of mouthguards available at the dental practice, as these are often much more effective at keeping teeth from becoming damaged.

What is a mouthguard?

Mouthguards are plastic or acrylic mouthpieces that are worn to protect teeth from damage while participating in high impact sports. Injuries to the mouth area can cause chipped, cracked, or knocked-out teeth. Patients with orthodontic work, including metal brackets and wires, may also be putting their smiles at risk for damage if they do not wear a mouth guard during certain activities. Mouthguards are:

  • Inexpensive
  • Custom-made
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to clean
  • Effective

Who needs a mouthguard?

Any patient who is performing an activity that may result in injuries to the mouth area is encouraged to ask their dentist at Kingsgate Dental about the benefits of wearing a custom mouthguard. These mouth guards can help patients avoid expensive dental repairs and irreversible damage to the soft tissues, bones, or teeth. When patients are proactive about protecting their teeth, they can rest easy knowing that they are avoiding these costly problems.

How are custom mouthguards made?

Dr. Ann Kelley of Kirkland, WA completes impressions of a patient’s upper and lower dental arch and uses these for the fabrication of custom mouthguards. These oral appliances are made to fit only the person they were fabricated for, ensuring proper fit and function.

 - 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.
