If you have a child, you want to protect them from bad stuff as much as you possibly can. If they play sports, that includes dental injuries. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests an athletic mouthguard for all children participating in organized sports activities – and for good reason. Statistics show that many dental injuries happen during sports.
Fortunately, mouthguards are an easy way to protect your loved ones’ smiles. Sure, you can buy one from a store. But it won’t fit as well as a sports mouthguard made using impressions of your child’s teeth. A custom guard stays in place and feels comfortable – so your child won’t be tempted to leave it on the sidelines. You also won’t have a frustrating “boil-and-bite” process before the first wearing.
Our dentists can also fit you for custom-made mouthguards to stop your teeth grinding and protect your smile from damage or to stop snoring and get a better night’s sleep.
