If you or your kid plays a high-impact sport (for example, football, soccer, boxing, hockey, baseball, or wrestling), then our dental specialists highly recommend a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth, gums, and jaw. Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, customized mouth guards from SmilesNY Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry will be molded and fit for you, making it more comfortable and effective. If you would like to reduce the risk of damage to your mouth, we encourage you to contact SmilesNY in New York, NY to learn more about custom mouth guards.
Custom mouth guards are important if you or your kid plays a sport that involves high contact or has a high risk of injury. Many of our patients participate in football, martial arts, volleyball, soccer, hockey, softball, wrestling, and more. A custom-made mouth guard can be especially beneficial if you have braces or dental restorations since these can cut your gums and the soft tissue lining your mouth. Mouth guards have also been shown to help athletes in non-contact sports (running, yoga, weight training) by decreasing tension on the jaw. Since a custom mouth guard is made especially for your needs, it generally fits better and lasts longer than stock or boil, and bite mouth protectors available at sporting goods stores.

"I don't usually take time to write reviews, but I felt it was time to give KUDOS that are well deserved. Over the past 15 years, Dr. Chase set 8 porcelain crowns; I can happily say I've had no problems during the procedures or in the years that I've had them! In fact, during the last session, I felt so relaxed, sans any medication, I could've easily fallen asleep. Dr. Chase and the staff are meticulous and precise in their attention to detail. Each step is explained in advance and my comfort level is always top priority. I confidently recommend Dr. Chase and his staff at Smiles NY!!"- P.R. / Google / Jun 17, 2021

What to Expect
To create your mouth guard, a series of digital or physical dental impressions is taken. Your impressions will be sent off to a dental laboratory where your mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once completed and shipped back to our office, you will come back to our office for a fitting. Your SmilesNY dentist will make sure your guard fits properly and feels comfortable.
When you receive your mouth guard, it is crucial to wear it while playing sports or whenever your mouth needs protection. Caring for your mouth guard will be crucial in preserving its lifespan. It is necessary to store it in a safe place and clean it before and after use. A member of our dental team will go over the best way to clean your mouth guard based on the materials used. You should bring it with you to every dental appointment so it can be inspected and so that your dentist can tell you when a replacement is required.
During your consultation, your dentist can go over your options and costs. SmilesNY accepts many payment methods and we can help you find low-interest financing. Dental insurance may cover some of the price, so we will call your provider to ascertain your exact benefits and estimate your out-of-pocket costs.
