About athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your kid plays a high-impact sport (for example, boxing, football, soccer, hockey, baseball, or wrestling), then dental professionals Drs. Kahn, Ferrari, Aldieri, and their team highly recommend a custom mouth guard to shield your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Compared to store-bought, generic mouth guards, custom-made mouth guards from KFA Dental Excellence will be crafted and adjusted for you, making it more comfortable and effective. If you want to decrease the chance of harm to your mouth, we encourage you to contact KFA Dental Excellence in Farmingdale, NY for more information about custom-made mouth guards.
Best Candidates For a Mouth Guard
Professionally made mouth guards are important if you or a member of your family plays a sport with high contact or has a high risk of injury. Many of our patients participate in volleyball, martial arts, football, soccer, softball, hockey, wrestling, and other sports. A professionally made mouth guard can be particularly helpful when you have braces or dental restorations since these can cut your gums, as well as the soft tissue in your mouth. Mouth guards have also been shown to assist athletes in sports without contact (jogging, yoga, weight lifting) by decreasing strain on the jaw. Since a custom mouth guard has been created especially for your needs, it usually fits better and lasts longer compared to boil and bite or stock mouth protectors available at sporting goods stores.

What to Expect With a Mouth Guard
To create your mouth guard, our dental team will take a collection of digital or physical dental impressions. Your impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where professionals will make your mouth guard from durable, high-quality materials. Once made and delivered to our office, you will come back to our office for a fitting. We will make sure your guard fits correctly and feels comfortable.
As soon as you receive your mouth guard, it is very important to wear it during sports or if your mouth requires extra protection. Taking care of your mouth guard will be critical in maintaining its lifespan. It's necessary to keep it in a safe place and wash it before and after use. Our team will go over the ideal method to wash your mouth guard based on the substances used. You should take it with you to every dental appointment so we can check its current state and also let you know when a replacement is needed.
