sports mouth guards

If your child participates in any activity where their mouth may be injured, they should wear a sports mouth guard. The Dentists for Kids offers custom sports mouth guards to help protect your child’s teeth, gums, cheeks, jawbone, and other oral structures from damage. Sports mouth guards also help prevent neck injuries, and can even make it easier for your child to breath while playing!

Our pediatric dentists and orthodontist is dedicated to keeping your smile healthy and free from pain. To help us do this, we provide several types of mouth guards at our office. For our athletic patients, we often recommend a type of mouth guard called an athletic mouth guard or sports guard. Sports guards fit over your teeth while you play sports and participate in other athletic activities to protect your smile from injury. Sports guards are especially important for our patients who play high-contact sports such as wrestling, football, hockey, and rugby; however, all types of athletes can benefit from an athletic mouth guard. Whether you play soccer, basketball, or baseball, a sports guard can be a great way to protect your smile and keep it safe.

While a number of types of athletic mouth guards are available, a custom-made mouth guard is the most effective in protecting your smile. This type of mouth guard is designed to comfortably fit your smile and prevent dental injury such as knocked out and chipped teeth. A sports guard can also help to prevent injury to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, lips, cheeks, and gums.

We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about mouth guards and their benefits. We look forward to caring for your smile!
