Mouth Guards and Retainers

Mouth Guards and Retainers

Mouth Guards and Retainers are essential services for preserving oral health and prolonging dental treatments. Mouth guards are a preventive solution, designed for people who grind their teeth at night or for those engaged in athletic activities. By cushioning and protecting teeth, they prevent wear, fractures, and other potential injuries. On the other hand, retainers play a crucial role post-orthodontic treatment. By using them, you can maintain the alignment of your teeth, ensuring that the results of orthodontic procedures like braces are preserved. These devices are custom-fitted to each individual’s mouth, ensuring optimal comfort and effectiveness.

At 24th Street Dental Biltmore in Phoenix, AZ, we specialize in providing high-quality mouth guards and retainers. As one of the few practices in Arizona, we boast in-house equipment to manufacture retainers using the same high-grade materials as third-party laboratories. This capability allows us to offer our retainers at a fraction of the cost and with a much faster turnaround time. To ensure your oral health is maintained and your dental treatments remain effective, schedule an appointment with us for your mouth guard or retainer needs.

Benefits of Mouth Guards and Retainers


Anyone experiencing teeth grinding at night, participating in contact sports, or those who have completed orthodontic treatment are ideal candidates for mouth guards and retainers.

You can expect effective protection against teeth grinding damage, sustained alignment of teeth post-orthodontic treatment, and reduced risk of dental injuries.

It’s advisable to replace mouth guards and retainers as recommended by your dentist, typically every few years, or if there are significant changes in your dental structure.

There is no downtime. Some initial discomfort may be experienced as you adjust to wearing the device, but this typically subsides quickly.

Before getting a mouth guard or retainer, ensure your teeth are clean and healthy. After receiving it, maintain good oral hygiene and regularly clean the device as instructed.

The process involves taking an impression of your teeth to create a custom-fitted device. There’s minimal discomfort and the fitting process is quick and straightforward.
