What Are Custom Mouth Sports Guards?
When you or someone in your family plays a sport (like soccer, boxing, football, wrestling, hockey, or baseball), we highly recommend a custom mouth guard to protect your gums, teeth, and jaw. Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, custom mouth guards from NowDental of Suffolk will be molded and fit for you, making them even more comfortable and effective. We encourage all Hauppauge, Long Island, and Suffolk County men, women, and children to wear custom mouth sports guards when participating in sports. If you want to decrease the danger of damage to your mouth, we encourage you to contact NowDental of Suffolk in Smithtown, NY, to find out more about custom mouth sports guards.
Who Should Use Custom Mouth Sports Guards?
Professionally made mouth guards are helpful if you or a member of your family participate in a sport that involves high contact or has a high risk of injury. A number of our patients participate in martial arts, football, volleyball, hockey, softball, soccer, wrestling, and more. A custom-made mouth guard can help defend your teeth during a sports-related accident, and may even be particularly useful if you have dental restorations or braces because these can cut your gums and the soft tissues in your mouth. Mouth guards have also been demonstrated to assist athletes in sports without contact (running, yoga, weight training) by reducing tension on the jaw. Since a custom-made mouth guard has been created specifically for your needs, it generally matches better and lasts longer than stock or boil and bite mouth protectors available at sporting goods shops.

What Can I Expect When Getting an Athletic Mouth Guard?
To create your mouth guard, one of our team members will take a series of digital impressions of your mouth. 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 back to our practice, you will return to our office for a fitting. We will make sure your guard fits properly and is comfortable.
Is There Follow-Up When Getting a Custom Mouth Guard?
As soon as you get your mouth guard, it is crucial to wear it during sports or anytime your mouth needs protection. Taking care of your mouth guard will be crucial in maintaining its lifespan. It is very important to keep it in a safe place and clean it before and after every use. Someone from our team will go over the best method to wash your mouth guard, depending on the material it was created out of. You should bring it with you to each dental appointment so we can check its condition and let you know when a new guard is necessary.
Will Insurance Pay for Custom Mouth Sports Guards?
During your initial consultation, we can talk about your options and prices. NowDental of Suffolk accepts several payment methods, and we will be able to help you find low-interest medical financing. Insurance may cover a portion of the expense so we will contact your company to estimate your out-of-pocket costs.
