Custom Sports Mouthguards
Is your son or daughter protected on the playing field? While you may have been quick to invest in helmets and padding for your child’s sport, it is important to consider proper mouth protection too. A surprising number of sports-related injuries involve the mouth. These can involve chipped teeth, knocked out teeth and lacerations to the cheek and lips. As part of our general dental care at Gwinnett Family Dental Care, we help patients realize the crucial importance of an athletic mouthguard for contact sports. The latest studies reveal that a custom mouthguard can also prevent concussions in youth sports.
Ultimate Protection with Custom Athletic Mouthguards
While boil-and-bite mouthguards can easily be found at your local sporting goods store or drug store, it is important to realize that a custom-fit mouthguard from your dentist offers a superior level of protection and comfort. In fact, experts agree that a one-size-fits-all mouthguard can be so ineffective that it causes more harm than not wearing one at all. At Gwinnett Family Dental Care, we use leading dental software and advanced in-office technology to fabricate athletic mouthguards that fit over every crevice and groove of the teeth. Patients should be able to breathe and even speak with ease while wearing one of our mouthguards. A mouthguard that is kept in place is one that will do its job to protect your child’s smile during the game.
