Active children are healthy children, but recreation and sports can present a threat to your child’s oral health. Athletic mouthguards can help protect your child’s teeth from a knee, elbow club, ball, racket, or just about any other object flying toward his or her face. For maximum effectiveness, a sports mouthguard should fit well and be properly cleaned between usages. Custom mouthguards provide the best fit for active children and teens and can be acquired through your child’s dentists
Teeth grinding during childhood is normal. Although its often a parental concern, children will often outgrow this habit. However, if the habit continues once their permanent teeth have come in and there are signs of wear, we will recommend a custom-made night-guard.
For both the mouth guard and night guard a mold will be taken of your child’s teeth which will be used to make a model and a custom-fitted guard.
