When you or your kid plays a sport (like soccer, football, boxing, baseball, wrestling, or hockey), then our Moodus, CT team of dentists strongly suggests a custom-made mouth guard to shield your gums, teeth, and jawbone. Compared to store-bought generic mouth guards, customized mouth guards from East Haddam Dental Associates will be crafted and adjusted for you, which makes it even more effective and comfortable. If you would like to decrease the possibility of harm to your mouth, we invite you to contact East Haddam Dental Associates in Moodus, CT to learn more about custom-made mouth guards.
Custom mouth guards are helpful if you or your child participates in a sport with a high risk of injury or frequent contact. A number of our patients take part in volleyball, football, martial arts, hockey, soccer, softball, wrestling, and more. A custom-made mouth guard may be particularly beneficial in case you have dental restorations or braces, because these can cut your gums as well as the soft tissues in your mouth. Mouth guards also have been shown to assist athletes in sports without contact (jogging, yoga, or weight lifting) by reducing strain on the jawbone. Since a custom-made mouth guard has been created specifically for your goals, it generally matches better and lasts longer compared to boil and bite or stock mouth guards bought at sporting goods shops.
"I have been a patient of East Haddam Dental for very many years. I have at all times been treated courteously and professionally. Dr. Stofko and now Dr. Goldman have tended to my teeth with a maximum of skill and a minimum of pain. Dr. Pear has also pitched in in their absence when I had an emergency that could not wait. I have never had an issue with the front desk staff. When I have a problem with a tooth they are always sympathetic and do their best to get me an early appointment to get it fixed. As for wait time, my experience is that I'm usually seated within a few minutes of my appointment. On those rare occasions where I did have to wait it was only for 15 minutes or so. I always figured the Doctor was backed up because someone needed extra help and I was just happy not to be that person. Needless to say I am pleased with the quality of care I've received and intend to stay with East Haddam Dental for the foreseeable future."- T.B. / Yelp / Jul 28, 2018

"I got a flyer in the mail for this office and lo and behold a month later I had a filling fall out. I called the dentist in Bloomfield that I had been going to since I was a child and the new dentist was not as accommodating as the prior one and he would not see me. I called up East Haddam Dental since I got their flyer and they were located in my neighborhood. I got right in, explained my anxiety to Dr. Goldberg he was very understanding. The staff was wonderful as was Dr. Goldberg. I have been going every since and highly recommend them."- C.R. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2020

What to Expect
For the first step in making your mouth guard, we will take a collection of physical or digital dental impressions. Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab where professionals will make your mouth guard from high-quality, durable materials. Once completed and shipped to our practice, you will return to our office to get your guard fitted. We will ensure your mouth guard fits correctly and is comfortable.
When you get your guard, it's crucial to wear it during sports or whenever 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 secure location and wash it before and after every use. Our dentists will explain the ideal method to wash your mouth guard depending on the substances used. You should take it to each dental appointment so we can check its current state and also let you know when a new guard is required.
In your initial consultation, we will talk about your options and prices. East Haddam Dental Associates takes several payments and we will be able to help you to find low-interest financing. Insurance can cover a portion of the price, so we'll call your company to ascertain your precise benefits and calculate your personal expenses.
