In North Carolina, the last months of summer include parades, outdoor food festivals, and the return to sports practice for thousands of school-aged athletes. When stocking up on your child’s helmets, pads and cleats, don’t forget to visit a Wilson family dentist at Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles for your student athlete’s custom sports mouth guard.

Mouth guards help prevent injuries such as chipped, broken, or dislodged teeth as well as unintentional biting of the tongue or inner cheek.

Our Wilson family dentistry office is among the select few in the nation authorized to fit patients for ArmourBite® Mouthguards, delivering customized, premium-grade mouth and jaw protection for anyone playing football, soccer, basketball, hockey and lacrosse.

The ArmourBite® Mouthguard is a custom-made device, individually crafted to fit the unique contours of your teeth and bite. The initial fitting lasts approximately 20 minutes, and the final mouth guard is ready in two weeks. ArmourBite® Mouthguards differ from their standard, off-the-shelf counterparts because of their:

  • Increased strength and endurance due to multi-patented, clinically proven technology
  • Custom fit
  • Individualized color, team logo, name and/or player number

No type of safety equipment can guarantee the prevention of injury. However, if you’re struck by a ball, puck or other player, a mouth guard can help minimize the impact on your jaw, teeth and oral tissue.

If you or a member of your family is gearing up for an upcoming sporting season in Goldsboro or Wilson, a family dentist at Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles can help. Contact our office today by calling 252-291-2892 or by completing the form on this page to schedule your appointment. Our office welcomes patients from Greenville and Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
