If your child loves playing sports, it’s important that they protect their teeth. Our custom-fitted mouth guards offer the protection your child needs to keep their mouth safe. While you might still have butterflies whenever your child steps on the field or the court, you can at least know that their teeth are protected!
A custom-fitted mouth guard can help to prevent the following injuries:
When it comes to our mouth guards, we emphasize maximum comfort through our custom-fit designs. We take impressions of your child’s teeth, and a dental laboratory will use the impressions to create the mouth guard. This process only takes two appointments, and it’s worth it to receive the best protection possible! The first visit involves taking the impressions, while the second visit is when the mouth guard will be fitted.
If your child is worried that their mouth guard might affect their athletic performance, then they haven’t had a custom-made mouth guard from Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry before. These appliances feel incredibly comfortable, and they won’t interfere with a child’s breathing or speaking. Our mouth guards are designed to allow your child to perform to the best of their abilities while protecting their mouth.
Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics also offers night guards for treating bruxism. Many children and teens suffer from this condition which causes them to clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. This problem can cause a child to jaw pain or worn-down enamel if it is not treated. But wearing a custom-fitted night guard can keep their oral structures safe.
Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics also offers a special Dental Assistant Training Program for our older patients. This is a fantastic program for teens who feel they may be interested in pursuing a career in dentistry later in life. The program lasts 13 sessions, with classes being held on either Saturdays or Sundays. We are happy to provide more information for teens and their parents.
Protect your child’s teeth with a custom-made mouth guard or night guard from Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics. Now you can worry about how many points your child scores instead of whether or not their teeth are protected! Please call us at (512) 234-3535 to schedule an appointment.
