Activities That Call For a Mouthguard
There are a number of activities that could endanger a smile, including:
- Martial Arts
- And Many More!
Nightguards for Bruxism
Do you suffer from bruxism (also known as the unconscious grinding and/or clenching of your teeth either when you’re awake or asleep). In addition to athletic mouthguards, we also offer nightguards that are designed to protect your teeth but still allow for a good night’s rest. When you come in for your next biannual checkup, ask about how nightguards can lead to better rest and healthier teeth.
Sports mouthguards in Las Cruces vary in price depending on your unique smile. When you schedule a consultation, we’ll be sure to give you an accurate price estimate.

Do mouthguards damage teeth?
If you have a mouthguard made from a dental professional like Las Cruces Dental Solutions, it will not damage your teeth. In fact, its whole purpose is that it’ll protect your teeth from damage, whether that be due to an athletic injury or nighttime grinding. The problem is if you have a poorly fitting mouthguard, possibly one of the generic boil-and-bite ones from a store. With those, it’s possible that if it doesn’t fit properly on your teeth, it’ll end up doing more harm than good.
Are mouthguards expensive?
It’s difficult to say whether or not dental mouthguards are “expensive” because everyone has a unique budget. Plus, your dental health is priceless! It’s true that mouthguards made by a dentist are more expensive than storebought versions—but that covers making a custom mold of your teeth to ensure perfect fit and function. It’s truly a case of you get what you pay for.
Does insurance cover mouthguards?
If you have dental insurance, it may cover a portion of the costs for a mouthguard, so we recommend talking to your provider to see what’s covered in your plan. If you don’t have dental insurance or your plan doesn’t cover mouthguards, you may want to consider joining our in-house dental plan to get a discount on our services.
