Children who are involved in sports where there is a risk of head, face, or neck injury need a mouth protector that fits properly to provide adequate protection against trauma.
Based on your child’s activities, we will recommend a type of mouth guard, or custom fabricated one to provide optimum protection.
If your child already has a mouth guard, we invite you to let us inspect it for proper fit. It is important to have mouth guards checked by a dentist periodically, because as your child grows, mouth guards may need to be replaced.
“Boiled” mouth guards are not recommended by our dental team.
