Protecting your teeth and any investment you have made in the health and appearance of your smile is important- teeth do not grow back.
Inwood dentist Dr. Kenneth Banks offers custom sports mouth guards for all ages for superior protection when compared to over the counter options. Anyone who participates in sports should consider a custom fit mouthguard. Sports-related injuries are one of the leading causes of tooth loss in active teens and adults.
Custom designed mouth guards can also help athletes perform better while protecting their teeth and gums from damage. With a custom fit appliance, the mouth guard fits snugly on the teeth and does not require jaw clenching to keep it in place, leaving all of your energies focused on your athletic pursuits. It is easy to drink fluids and speak with teammates while wearing a custom fit sports mouth guard, making it more likely that your young athlete will keep the mouth guard in place.
I came in today for x-rays and a treatment plan. Everything was carried out in a timely, professional, and thorough manner. I am always pleased with the dental care and congenial manner of Dr. Banks, and everyone who works there. Keep up the excellent work!Carol G.

Dr. Banks practice is a model of what a "Top of the Line" dental experience should be. I have been with his practice for many years. The experience starts with the reception desk and a warm greeting. Appointments are kept "On Time". All staff members I have ever had contact…Eddie S.

Mouthguards What to Expect
Mouthguards are a way to protect the investment you make in your oral health. Many patients spend a lot of time and money investing the health of their teeth and gums. Custom mouthguards offer a secure fit for optimal performance during sports.
Dr. Banks will take molds of the patient’s mouth. The molds will be used to fabricate a custom mouthguard that will fit securely in the mouth during activity. Custom Mouthguards have been shown to help athletes perform better. Because the mouthguard is custom designed to form to the patient’s unique bite, there is less chance of the mouthguard falling out or getting lost during activity.
