Athletic Mouthguards

Protect Your Mouth From Damage

A high-quality, custom-made mouthguard should be part of every athlete's equipment. What's a mouthguard? It's a small protective device that fits over your teeth and absorbs the force of an impact, helping to protect the mouth from damage. Gilmore and Dunn Dentistry specialize in custom-fitted mouthguards to provide maximum protection.

A custom-fabricated mouthguard is the one that's made just for you: First a model of your teeth is prepared, and then a piece of protective gear is individually fabricated for a perfect fit. It's strong, lightweight and comfortable — which means you can wear it comfortably for the duration of your event.

Custom-made mouthguards are an indispensable piece of equipment — especially when they could save the inconvenience (and potentially much higher cost) of restoring or replacing teeth. So, if you or your children are active in sports, consider having a custom mouthguard made by our office. It's the best way to prevent a dental injury from spoiling your game.

From the ADA

  • Mouthguard use has been shown to reduce the risk of sport-related dental injuries.
  • The ADA recommends wearing a properly fitted mouthguard to reduce the incidence and severity of oral injury in sporting or recreational activities, particularly activities with significant risk of dental trauma or orofacial injury.
  • Mouthguards should have adequate retention to provide a resilient, protective surface on the dental arch that is considered to be at highest risk of injury (typically the maxilla), and to offer protection from soft tissue injuries to the lips and cheeks.




The office is so calming and welcoming. Dr. Gilmore and the team go the extra step for a clean and safe environment. She recently had a Phantom Air Purifier installed in each room that cleans the air every 83 seconds.... Wow! It was a great way to start my day. I highly recommend this dentist office.

To walk into Dr. Gilmores office has the feeling for me of being anticipated and met. She, herself, greeted me months ago as I entered with a sagging front tooth. She gave generously of her own time to see a situation through. Skill at hearing and learning from patient concerns show me how deeply she ‘values’ her clientele. Upon every visit, she built on what had happen previously. Another skill is experienced as she ‘fit’ my work in where there was no space on the books for it.....but also with such grace. I have absolutely loved seeing the number of assistants come, grow and become settled in their particular gift toward making an office complete in it’s offering. The spaces are indeed therapeutic.....visually, audibly, and energetically.... In these ways as a patient I have felt ‘held’ and honored. Really....need I say more? ! Thankfully and Gratefully,
