What are the benefits of using a sports mouth guard in Kirkland, WA?

Dr. Ann Kelley at Kingsgate Dental explains What are the benefits of using a sports mouth guard in Kirkland, WA

Dr. Ann Kelley and the team of Kingsgate Dental in Kirkland, WA are here to treat patients like family. The members of the practice care about everyone and believe in providing the best dental care available in the area. Part of dental care includes preventative care, including the use of a sports mouth guard.

What is a sports mouth guard?

Dental sports mouth guards are plastic appliances that patients wear during high-impact sports to protect their teeth. These mouth guards can lessen the chance of teeth getting knocked out during sports such as soccer or football. Wearing the mouth guard protects the teeth and gums from damage.


What are the benefits of wearing a sports mouth guard?

Sports mouth guards are:

  • Effective
  • Affordable
  • Comfortable
  • Preventive

At Kingsgate Dental, we provide custom-made mouth guards for athletes. They provide a much better fit and function than anything available over-the-counter at the local drugstore. Many commercial guards require patients to boil the guard and then wear it to have it mold to their teeth. Our practice uses traditional dental molds instead to create a mouth guard that fits perfectly for each individual patient. This ensures not only comfort but also effectiveness.

How much do sports mouth guards cost?

Most mouth guards available through a dental office cost more than over-the-counter alternatives, but provide better fit and function. Patients can ask about the cost when they schedule their consultation visit. Patients are encouraged to bring their dental insurance cards with them to see if they have coverage to reduce the overall cost. Using dental insurance benefits is important, as many are “use them or lose them” benefits that should be utilized by the end of each calendar year.

 - 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.
