Custom Athletic Mouthguards in
Long Island City

At Queensboro Plaza Dental Care, we believe prevention is the key to oral health success. By investing in preventive dental treatments, patients can often save themselves a lot of time, pain, and money by avoiding restorative dental work. If you or your child regularly compete in athletic activities, ask our team about our custom athletic mouthguards, and we’ll be more than happy to help you.

What is the best mouthguard for sports?

For patients who participate in aggressive contact sports like football, soccer, and lacrosse every once in a while, a one-size-fits-all mouthguard may be fine for protecting their teeth. When it comes to patients who routinely participate in these types of sports, however, we highly recommend investing in a custom athletic mouthguard. Our custom mouthguards are designed around each patient’s unique smile, so they are comfortable to wear for hours at a time. They are also very durable and excellent for protecting the teeth against potential dental trauma.

How are custom athletic mouthguards created?

In order for a custom mouthguard to be designed around a patient’s teeth, impressions need to be taken. This can be done at the end of a routine dental visit, or we would be happy to schedule a quick appointment for you as well. Once we have accurate impressions of your smile, they will be sent to an offsite lab where your mouthguard will be designed, created, and sent to our office. Once it arrives, we will contact you and schedule a short appointment for you to try it on and make any necessary adjustments. Then, you’re free to take it home and begin using it!

Are custom athletic mouthguards expensive?

Custom oral appliances are typically more of a financial investment due to the fact that they are custom-made for each patient. However, we find that patients are more likely to wear custom athletic mouthguards, which means their teeth are protected more often than not, and they are less likely to need restorative dental work. Some dental plans offer full or partial coverage for custom mouthguards, and patients enrolled in our membership plan can receive a 15% discount as well.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
