Our Commitment to Your Smile

At North River Dental Clinic, we believe in the power of prevention. Whether you’re an avid athlete or just starting to engage in sports, protecting your teeth is essential. Sports-related injuries can happen unexpectedly, and a custom-fitted mouthguard is a simple yet effective way to safeguard your teeth and oral structures.


The Importance of Sports Mouthguards


Dental Protection

Sports activities, even seemingly low-impact ones, can pose a risk to your teeth. A properly fitted mouthguard acts as a cushion, absorbing and dispersing impact forces that could otherwise result in broken or displaced teeth.


Prevention of Soft Tissue Injuries

Mouthguards not only protect your teeth but also reduce the risk of soft tissue injuries, such as cuts and bruises to the lips, tongue, and cheeks, which can occur during sports collisions or falls.


Concussion Prevention

Recent studies suggest that properly fitted mouthguards may help reduce the risk of concussions by absorbing and distributing impact forces during a blow to the jaw.


Why Choose a Sports Mouthguard?

Participating in sports and physical activities carries inherent risks, including the potential for oral injuries. A sports mouthguard is a vital piece of protective gear designed to reduce the risk of dental trauma during impact or collision. Whether you’re involved in high-contact sports like football and hockey or recreational activities such as biking and skateboarding, wearing a mouthguard can significantly lower the chances of sustaining injuries to the teeth, lips, and surrounding soft tissues.


Custom-Fitted Excellence

At North River Dental Clinic, we prioritize your comfort and safety. Our sports mouthguards are custom-fitted to provide optimal protection and comfort. Unlike over-the-counter mouthguards, our custom solutions are crafted using advanced materials and technology, ensuring a precise fit that conforms to the unique shape of your teeth and gums.

I got the smile I always wanted! I chose these folks because of all the positive reviews I found on Google. Looks like they’re gonna get another one. Doc Steinberg is the real deal and I will definitely be recommending this office to all my family and friends. I had to make multiple trips due the extent of work required, and I was greeted with a warm smile and friendly service every time. I can’t say enough about the people in this office and how pleasant my experience was. Yes a pleasant experience at the dentist! Go figure.

My husband and I made the decision to try NRD after having some bad experiences at our last dental office. We were both blown away by how welcoming the staff at NRD were. Thank you Bonnie, Vanessa, Dr Raj, and Tayla for making my first exam and cleaning so enjoyable!

Great dental office. Super professional and friendly staff. This was my first visit. I was seen exactly at my appointment time. I received a thorough dental exam and evaluation, followed by a cleaning I could not have been happier with the process, the staff and the outcome

This is the best dentist office you could ever go to.They all are great. They treat you so kind, especially Bobbie Jo and the Dr. I was never a fan of going to the dentist as most of us are not, right, but the experience I have had at NRD has changed all that. I enjoy going to the dentist now and you will too, I promise, just give them a call.

I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in. Kelly was an excellent guide through the entire evaluation. Drs. Delarose and Steinberg were informative, friendly and comforting with my uneasiness at being in a dental office. I plan on coming back and starting my dental journey right here!

When half a tooth fell out unexpectedly, on referral from a friend, I went to North River Dental. I have received what I perceive to be above standard service. So far, I’ve gained a new crown, lost a bad tooth, had a cleaning, and plan for a deep cleaning. All of this was done with the newest of images and diagnostic tools coupled with really friendly and effective professionalism. I definitely recommend this group for anyone wanting help with mouth issues.

11/9/23 1 week ago Dr. Raj finished a root canal on my left upper eye tooth & did a wonderful job. He is known as the root canal specialist. He lets you know what he is doing & why he is doing it. He is very gentle & has a great sense of humor. On Friday of that same week I broke my left upper molar after the office had closed. On Monday morning I called the office and told the receptionist about my broken tooth and they fit me in by 10:00am that day. The whole office staff is great. They’re very accommodating & polite, but I do miss the chocolate chip cookies they used to serve. Niki B.
