When your child begins to participate in any sport activities, injuries can easily occur. A properly fitted mouth guard is an important piece of an athletic gear and can help prevent broken teeth, injuries to the jaws, and other oral tissues.
Growing mouths need to have custom made mouth guards, esp if children are wearing braces, still have baby teeth and have teeth that are barely developed. Children be as young as four years old for a mouth guard. There are even adults that wear them.
Mouth guards can be made digitally now, so there is no need for the goopy impressions. Call our office to inquire about custom made and pre-fabricated mouth guards. They can be fabricated within a few days.
