Do you or your child play contact sports? Receive a custom sports mouthguard at Fedida Family Dentistry and Dental Spa. Dr. Haim Fedida provides professional mouthguards to help protect the teeth and gums from injury during sports. Football, baseball, hockey, basketball, lacrosse, and other contact sports require mouthguards to be worn at games.
As a general dental service, sports mouthguards have a higher compliance rate than store-bought mouthguards. This is because they are more comfortable and easier to use. When wearing professional sports mouthguards, players can easily drink and talk. Parents do not have to worry about their child’s mouthguard falling out during games.
The Benefits of Sports Mouthguards
Custom sports mouthguards made by dental professionals:
- Fit securely in the mouth
- Prevent tooth loss and damage
- Protect dental work
- Do not slip during games
- Make it easy to speak
Over-the-counter mouthguards do not offer a custom fit and are often not made of thick or durable material. In addition, store-bought mouthguards may fall out or make it difficult to speak. When you constantly have to clench your teeth to keep a mouthguard in, it can distract you from the game.
Constantly exerting jaw pressure to keep a mouthguard in place can also lead to temporomandibular joint disorders. TMJ disorders can cause painful symptoms such as teeth grinding, jaw and facial pain, and headaches. Sometimes, TMJ treatment includes a custom mouthguard that we specifically design for this disorder.
A Custom Mouthguard in Jackson Heights, NY
Dr. Fedida creates custom sports mouthguards in his office for both children and adult patients. He takes impressions of the teeth to use for the fabrication of the mouthguard. Once the mouthguard is complete, he will make sure that it fits securely and feels comfortable. Mouthguards provide preventative care to patients so they do not have to receive cosmetic or restorative care. Wearing a professional mouthguard can prevent chips, cracks, and breaks in the teeth as well as missing teeth.
