About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom built by a dentist, like our dentists in Universal City, TX, can be used to shield the teeth and gums while enjoying contact sports (i.e. martial arts and football) or other activities that often involve falling or injury (i.e. biking and skating). In addition to defending the jaw, teeth, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to boost athletic performance by lowering stress, which diminishes the release of hormones that can restrict strength, reaction time, and endurance. Even though generic mouth guards are priced lower, custom built mouth guards from our dentists at Pat Booker Dental Care are created from superior quality ingredients, fit more snuggly, last longer, and give more reliable protection, which can prevent high-priced dental services.

"Scheduling an appointment was easy with their online booking system. Their front desk staff was very friendly and helpful through my experience. This was my first dental appointment after retirement and I was completely satisfied with my visit. My Dentist was very nice and accommodating with my pain. She almost immediately diagnosed my symptom and referred me to an alternate clinic versus trying to keep the business for her practice. I will be completing my treatment, and all future dental appointments with Pat Booker Dental Care."- J.J. / Google / Jun 13, 2019
"I hate going to the dentist but the staff at Pat Booker Dental Care are excellent at helping ease my anxiety! Everyone is so friendly and efficient. I had to get a couple fillings this go around and I was in and out in no time. After the numbness wore off, there was no residual pain and I was able to eat and drink with no problem! I moved out of Universal City a while back but I still come here even though it is about 30 minutes away from my home. They really take care of me here!! I highly recommend this place."- R.M. / Google / Jun 11, 2019
What to Expect
To personalize the mouth guard, our dentists take a set of digital X-rays and molds for the dental lab where progressive technology and top-quality supplies will be used to build the patient's personalized mouth guard. When the mouth guard is shipped back to Pat Booker Dental Care in Universal City, TX, our dentists will fine-tune the mouth guard for the patient's best fit and the most comfortable bite.
Our dentists will talk to the patient about all mouth guard use information, such as the proper technique to clean and keep the mouth guard. To make sure the wear and fit of the guard is modified if needed, the patient should bring their mouth guard to every one of their cleaning appointments at Pat Booker Dental Care. With ideal care, a mouth guard can be worn for 6 - 8 years, but our dentists will assess the mouth guard at all visits and help the patient choose when they may need a replacement mouth guard.
A personalized mouth guard is generally not covered by dental insurance plans, but Pat Booker Dental Care will calculate each patient's benefits and out-of-pocket expenses. To help make personalized mouth guards affordable for our patients, Pat Booker Dental Care does accept quite a few forms of payment and we also offer financing plans.
