Protecting Your Child’s Teeth During Sporting Events

sports and mouth guardsMouth protectors are soft plastic appliances that shape themselves to the upper teeth and are important sports equipment. Not only do they protect the teeth but they also protect the lips, cheeks, and tongue and can protect your child from serious head injuries such as concussions and jaw fractures.

If your child is involved in a physical activity in which their head is in contact with other players or equipment then consider getting a mouth guard for your child today. There are various types of appliances available so call our offices for more information or to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors to find out what type of mouth guard is best for your child.
