When a child begins to participate in recreational activities and organized sports, injuries can occur.
A properly fitted mouth guard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear.
It can help protect your child’s smile, and is recommended to be used during any activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth. Mouth guards help prevent broken teeth, and injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. A properly fitted mouth guard will stay in place while your child is wearing it, making it easy for them to talk and breathe. Ask your dentist about custom and store-bought mouth protectors.
