Overview

If you or your child plays a high-impact sport (for example, football, boxing, soccer, hockey, wrestling, or baseball), then experienced dentist Dr. Sangiv I. Patel highly recommends a custom mouth guard to protect the teeth, gums, and jaw. Unlike generic mouth guards bought at the store, customized mouth guards from Dr. Patel's private practice will be molded to fit uniquely for you, making the mouth guard more comfortable and effective. If you would like to reduce the danger of damage to your mouth, we encourage you to contact Sangiv I. Patel, D.D.S., PA in Melbourne, FL to learn more about custom mouth guards.

Best Candidates

Custom mouth guards are important if you or your child play a sport that involves high contact or has a high risk of injury. Many of our patients participate in football, volleyball, martial arts, soccer, softball, hockey, wrestling, and more. A custom-made mouth guard can be especially beneficial in case 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.

What to Expect

To create your mouth guard, Dr. Patel will take a series of digital impressions of your mouth. Using these thorough impressions, we will be able to craft a durable mouth guard made of high-quality materials. Once completed, you will return to our office for a fitting. Dr. Patel will make sure that your guard fits properly and feels comfortable.

Follow-Up

When you receive your mouth guard, it is crucial to wear it while playing sports or whenever your mouth requires additional protection. Caring for your mouth guard will be important in preserving its lifespan. It is necessary to store your mouth guard in a safe place and clean it before and after use. Dr. Patel 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 Dr. Patel can inspect its condition and tell you when a replacement is required.

Insurance Coverage

During your consultation, Dr. Patel can go over your options and costs. Our office accepts many payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing if it is necessary. Dental insurance may cover some of the price of your mouth guard so we will call your provider to ascertain your exact benefits and estimate your out-of-pocket costs.
