Preserving the smiles of patients at every stage in life is very important to our team at PDADental. Whether you and your family play professional sports or engage in physical activity just for fun, custom athletic mouth guards are a great way to protect your teeth, jaw, jaw joints, and gums. Mouth guards are made of a sturdy resin material and help to protect your oral tissues should your mouth, jaw, or face get bumped or hit during sports. If you or your loved ones play football, basketball, or even noncontact sports, you run the risk of oral strain and injuries. Partner with our expert dentists to help keep your family's smiles safe. Get in touch with our practice in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, NY to schedule your custom mouth guard consultation.
Children and adults of any age who play or engage in sporting activities can greatly lessen their risk of oral trauma or jaw injuries with an athletic mouth guard. Custom-crafted for each individual to fit comfortably in the mouth, athletic appliances sit between the upper and lower arches to cover and protect the teeth and gum tissues. When compared with commercial boil-and-bite appliances, custom mouth guards from PDADental offer a better fit and longer duration. Athletic mouth guards help protect the integrity of your teeth, gums, jawbone, jaw joints, and restorations, like crowns, veneers, fillings, and implants, against damage and injury during sporting activities. We partner with a professional dental lab to create custom athletic mouth guards of high-quality materials for a comfortable and secure fit. Wearing a mouth guard is essential for anyone participating in an activity where injury to the mouth may occur, including hockey, basketball, football, wrestling, boxing, martial arts, baseball, weight lifting, yoga, and track and field.
"Would highly recommend Dr. Ritholtz and his staff! They are all amazing and very supportive"- J.C. / Google / Apr 16, 2021
"Dr. Jalal Fatehi is an incredibly professional and highly skilled dental surgeon. I couldn't ask for a better experience. His assistant Mary was extremely helpful. I had three wisdom teeth extracted at the same time. Two extractions needed stitches. It only took about 30 minutes for Dr. Fatehi to remove all three wisdom teeth. I have a small mouth, and I can't open it very wide, but Dr. Fatehi was able to treat me comfortably. Today my mouth feels so much better. I highly recommend Dr. Fatehi. Thank you and God bless."- L.X. / Google / Apr 15, 2021
"Dr. Ritzholtz has been my dentist for over a decade. I’ve been very happy with my experience over the years. Staff are professional, cleanings are comfortable, and its actually a pleasure to go to the dentist for checkups. Recently I also completed Invisalign. Also a great experience. So much so I wish I had done it years earlier. I now have perfectly straight teeth and the treatment took less than 6 months start to finish. Would highly recommend his practice."- E.C. / Google / Apr 08, 2021

What to Expect
When you visit PDADental for your consultation, one of our experienced general dentists will evaluate your mouth and talk with you about your needs. An impression of your upper and lower arches will then be taken, which our partner dental lab will use to fabricate your custom mouth guard. We work with the highest quality materials and can often personalize your mouth guard with a color combination of your choice. Before you leave, we will schedule a visit for you about 1 – 2 weeks later for you to have your appliance fitted. At this appointment, our team will ensure your guard feels comfortable and secure and provide instructions on how to care for your sports appliance.
Mouth guards offer great protection for your oral health and smile when worn during sports games, practices, or any athletic activities. Without this protection, your teeth, gums, and jaw are at significant risk for injury. We have treated many emergency cases resulting from injuries sustained when mouth guards are not worn and encourage you to wear your athletic mouth guard whenever necessary. Custom mouth guards made from high-quality acrylic can last for serval years when cleaned, stored, and cared for in the best way. Please be sure to bring your appliance with you to your routine dental exam and cleaning appointments at PDADental so that our team can evaluate its fit and integrity and ensure it is still protecting your smile properly.
Dental insurance may offer limited coverage for custom athletic mouth guards in some cases. Before we take impressions for your appliance, we will talk with your provider and then discuss any anticipated costs for your care. PDADental offers a range of payment choices, including special patient financing with CareCredit®, to make covering any out-of-pocket costs convenient for your family.
