Kids need to put their energy somewhere and they likely do that playing contact sports. Because accidents can happen during any physical activity, the advantage of using a mouth guard during sports is that it can help limit the risk of mouth-related injuries to your lips, tongue, and soft tissues of your mouth. Here at Kidz Connextion, we suggest a custom-fitted mouth guard for the highest level of comfort and protection for your child’s mouth.
Mouth guards are essentially plastic dental appliances that are worn over the teeth. For a custom-fitted mouth guard, our doctor will take an impression of your child’s mouth and send it out to have a custom mouth guard made. The thinness of the custom mouth guard allows for easy breathing and also allows for easy communication (especially important for your star athlete). This will obviously be the most comfortable type to wear and will offer your child with the best protection.
If your child plays sports and you are concerned about his or her dental safety, give us a call to discuss your options. If you have questions about pediatric oral care, please give us a call.
