What can I do to protect my child’s teeth during sporting events?
Soft plastic mouthguards can be used to protect a child’s teeth, lips, cheeks and gums from sport related injuries. You can select from several options in mouth guards. Preformed or “boil-to-fit” mouth guards are found in sports stores. Different types and brands vary in terms of comfort, protection, and cost. A custom-fitted mouthguard developed by Our dental team will protect your child from injuries to the teeth, face and even provide protection from severe injuries to the head. They cost a bit more, but are more comfortable and more effective in preventing injuries. Our dental team can advise you on what type of mouth guard is best for your child.
