Protecting Smiles

A properly fit mouth guard can help minimize the impact of a concussion & other injuries to the teeth, tongue, lips, jaw, & face.

  • With unmatched fit, performance and protection, Delta Dental's Athletic Mouth Guards are the only mouth guard to earn the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance
  • Our mouth guards are scientifically proven to provide up to 2x the impact absorption of traditional "boil-and-bite" mouth guards. 
  • Developed from Vistamaxx — a patented fitting material that provides a lockdown fit and can be remolded over and over — these mouth guards provide a comfortable, protective fit that works with braces.


There are many benefits to wearing a properly fitted mouth guard for both students and their families. 
  • Preventing Injury: Wearing a mouth guard minimizes the impact of concussions & other injuries to the teeth, tongue, lips, jaw, & face.
  • Orthodontia Friendly: The patented fitting material molds comfortably over braces, and can be remolded again and again as teeth move.
  • Saving Families Money: The average sports dental injury is usually not a one-time cost to fix; treating knocked-out teeth can cost between $5,000 to $20,000 over a lifetime.
  • More Time for Learning: Reducing orofacial injuries in school sports keeps kids in the classroom, and out of the emergency room.
