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.
"I met Dr. Ferrari and her staff in July of 2021 for a pretty complicated issue that I was terrified of having done. From the minute I stepped into the office, I was at put at ease. The staff truly gives the Ritz Carlton experience to each and every person that walks in. Once you are escorted to the treatment room, from the second you sit in the chair until you walk out, my comfort was always the main priority. Like many, going to the dentist was not my favorite thing to do, but the second I met Dr. Ferrari, I knew all of my fears and anxieties would vanish. She is truly the most kind, caring, professional, medical professional I have ever seen. I have been going to her monthly for almost a year now and I must admit, I look forward to each visit. Not once have I ever experienced a bit of discomfort during or after any of my treatments. The follow up calls and texts from either Dr. Ferrari or her staff to check in on me are also a welcomed bit of excellence in the days of automated calls or just being a number. 5 stars are not enough for KFA Dental. With the highest regards, Carrie Marone ⭐️"- C.S. / Facebook / May 04, 2022
"My kids and I have been patients for over five years. All the staff is so friendly both front desk and the hygienists ! Dr. Ferrari and Dr Aldieri care so much about their patients. Office goes above and beyond with regard to cleanliness and updated technology."- J.H. / Google / Apr 19, 2022
"I have been a patient of KFA Dental for over three decades. I LOVE KFA Dental, Dr. Angela Ferrari and my hygienist, Melissa. I know that that sounds strange but it's 100% true. The entire staff are the nicest group of people you could ever hope to meet and always make you feel welcome and well cared for. They are always up to date on the latest technology and truly care about how you feel both during and after whatever procedure it is that you're having done. I have and will continue to recommend KFA Dental to anyone and everyone who is looking for a new dentist. I actually look forward to my visits."- D.R. / Google / Apr 15, 2022

Every person in the office in wonderful. I’ve seen each of the dentists in the practice - each of them great. Highly recommend for everything from cleanings to Invisalign!!!!"- L.H. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
"I have never experienced a dentist like KFA, the whole team is by far the best. I love their text messaging system for follow-up, or when you need an appointment, with immediate response during business hours. I’ve never had a bad experience with anyone on the team. Every cleaning I have had these past few years, has always been nothing but great. Each of the hygienists have always been very accommodating to my phobia of going to the dentist, they have made each experience exceptional. Recently, I had my 3rd root canal preformed and Dr. Lewis. This has been by far the best “pain free” root canal I’ve had done. I wish I knew about KFA for my two previous root canals. Highly recommended."- G.S. / Google / Mar 31, 2022
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.
