Our custom athletic mouthguards will give your child’s pearly whites the protection they need!
Injuries to the teeth, jaw and mouth are extremely common in sports, including ones like basketball, baseball and softball that don’t require mouthguards. That’s why it’s recommended that kids wear this key piece of protective equipment when playing sports or doing any physical activity that could result in a blow to the face. At The Beach House Pediatric Dentistry, we offer custom mouthguards for sports that will provide the best possible fit, comfort and, of course, protection.
Keeps the mouth safe from trauma
Mouthguards, especially custom mouthguards, are incredibly effective for protecting the teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, lips and jaw from trauma.
Prevents the need for extensive treatment
By preventing serious dental injuries, wearing a mouthguard also prevents the need for costly, extensive repairs.
Protects patients with braces
A mouthguard is particularly important for kids with braces. It protects the appliance and acts as a buffer between the braces and the soft tissues of the mouth.
What to expect when getting a custom mouthguard
While any mouthguard, including the boil-and-bite kind, is better than no mouthguard, a custom mouthguard is designed especially for your child’s smile. It will fit perfectly, stay in place while your child is wearing it and offer the highest level of protection without impacting their ability to talk or breathe.
When you visit our practice for a mouthguard, we’ll take impressions of your child’s teeth. A custom mouthguard will then be fabricated from the model of their mouth. When it’s ready, Dr. Parker will check the fit and comfort and make any adjustments.
