When a child begins to participate in contact sports and physical recreational activities, the risk of sustaining oral injuries increases significantly. A mouthguard can help prevent or lessen the severity of oral injuries such as fractures to the teeth or surrounding bone, or cuts to the tongue, lip or cheek.
A custom-fitted mouth guard tailored to your child’s activity is even more effective at preventing oral injury as it remains in the optimal position in the his or her mouth. It is also more comfortable for the child when talking and breathing. Ask us about the use of mouthguards and the most suitable solution for your child. Our practice can provide a custom-fitted mouth guard tailored to your child’s needs.
