Guard Your Grin

Did you know...

More than 3 million teeth will be knocked out this year while practicing or participating in youth sports. That's why Delta Dental of New Mexico is providing our ADA approved mouth guards to student athletes across the state completely FREE.

Delta Dental of New Mexico is dedicated to improving the overall health & smiles of the people we serve. We've partnered with the New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA) to provide the Delta Dental Athletic Mouth Guard, a completely moldable, American Dental Association approved athletic oral appliance, to students in middle schools and high schools in New Mexico - completely free.  

Our program provides mouth guards to students in boys and girls youth sports that require mouth guards.  For information on getting Delta Dental Mouth Guards at your school, please Contact Us.  

Protecting Smiles

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

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.

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.
