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 have been going to this dental practice for more than 25 years and couldn't imagine getting dental work done anywhere else. They have moved from their original location and have added 2 dentists over the years but a practice I always loved got even better over time. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience there. The office is modern and immaculate. When you arrive for your appointment, you are immediately greeted by the friendly staff at the reception desk. The office is run like clockwork so you never have to wait very long. Once called in, you are personally escorted to your dental chair (which has a massage option) where they go out their way to make you feel extremely comfortable. You get personalized attention to discuss any problems or concerns you may be having in your mouth. This office has all the latest and greatest in technology to make your experience the best it can be. The dentists, hygienists and all staff members are great people who are very caring and dedicated to their profession. My family of five are all patients and although my older children moved away from the area, they return to have all their dental work done by KFA Dental!"- K.S. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"I love KFA dental ! 5 years ago my son was treated by Dr. Kahn for some cosmetic dental work. My son was about to go away to college and was very unhappy with his smile. He rarely smiled and that made me hurt for him. We had a consultation with Dr Kahn who was happy to help my son. Dr. Kahn’s care and concern, along with his professional expertise brought back my son’s smile. To this day my son still talks about his smile and how happy he is with Dr. Kahn’s help. I would highly recommend KFA dental. #happysonhappymom AND… Over the past year Dr. Ferrari has helped me with my dental care. I came to her with concerns regarding my 30 year old cosmetic dental work. My case was extensive, needing implants , orthodontics and Endodontics along with cosmetic work. Dr Ferrari took on my case and guided me through every step of the way. She listened to my desires for a finished smile and I felt she truly understood what I was communicating. She is great at what she does, and is very detail oriented. I love the fact that she is a perfectionist and does not settle for anything less. After the structural work was completed, Dr Ferrari put her professionalism to work and completed my cosmetic work. Today was my final visit and I could not be happier. Her complete staff at KFA are wonderful as well ( From the front desk, to the office manager Christine, to the hygienists). I highly recommend Dr. Ferrari for any work (routine maintenance to cosmetic). She’s the real deal!"- L.T. / Google / Sep 29, 2021

They have treated my entire extended family from ages 16-87. The office is immaculate. You are never rushed and there is always a comprehensive plan in place before any work begins. My husband John has worked for Henry Schein for many years and is highly selective re dentists and best practices. He has never seen a cleaner, more well run practice. Most of all they’re a lot of fun . Ps ty ty ty for everything 💕"- P.D. / Google / Sep 26, 2021
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.
