About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Aurora, CO, may be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or activities that may have a high risk of falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the production of hormones that can limit strength, endurance, and reaction time. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at Cherokee Trail Dental Care are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last for a longer time, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.
"Very very very good! Just finished a root canal with Dr. Eugenio Montecinos- didn’t feel a thing! I didn’t even feel the shot to numb me! Was in and out of there quick. They are also taking full precautions during the pandemic too- all of them were wearing the necessary gear to protect themselves and others- which was comforting! I feel happy to say that I will bring my family here. Great service and professional staff! Highly recommend!"- H.W. / Google / May 13, 2020

"Dr. Justus and staff are great! My Wife had extensive work done last week. From check-in the front desk Supervisor was professional, caring and patient. The office has such a great system that nothing was left to chance. They gave both my Wife and I copies of after care. I was given prescriptions to pick up while the surgery was going on. They called me by phone to give updates on how everything was going. After surgery Dr Justus and staff went over the procedure and how they felt it went. They went over further the home instructions. No one likes to have dental surgery. But it's a comfort to have Doctors and staff who give patient and family such professional care. A Big Thank You! From my Wife and I."- K.B. / Yelp / Aug 30, 2019
