How Do Sports Mouthguards Work?

Contact Corbin Dental today to learn more about our dental services.

Dr. Bruce Corbin and Dr. Richard Corbin provide custom sports mouthguards to patients in Oyster Bay, NY. Both children and adults can receive custom, professionally-made sports mouthguards to protect their teeth when playing sports. At Corbin Dental, we can help patients receive durable mouthguards as a preventative treatment against dental injuries and even tooth loss. Wearing a mouthguard during sports can prevent the need for cosmetic and restorative dental care for problems like chipped, cracked, and missing teeth.

The Benefits of Custom Sports Mouthguards

Custom, professionally-made sports mouthguards conform to the teeth so they have less of a chance of falling out during a game. Because our mouthguards are customized, they stay in the mouth and make it easier for athletes to drink and speak clearly. With store-bought mouthguards, athletes may feel like they have to clench their teeth to keep their mouthguard in place.

Poorly-fitting mouthguards distract athletes from the game and can cause pressure on their teeth and jaw. Sports mouthguards that fit properly not only feel comfortable but fully protect the smile.

Treatment with Sports Mouthguards

Dr. Bruce Corbin or Dr. Richard Corbin will help you or your child receive a custom sports mouthguard. To begin, they will take dental impressions of the teeth. These impressions are sent to a dental lab, where the mouthguard is precisely fabricated. Once the mouthguard is complete, Dr. Bruce or Richard Corbin will ensure that it fits precisely and feels comfortable in the mouth.

Patients should replace their sports mouthguard when they notice a change in its fit. Most patients typically replace their mouthguards every season. Over time, wear on the mouthguard can impact the shape of the mouthguard. Contact our office if you have an old or worn mouthguard and we will provide you with a new replacement.
