Children lead active lives, and many children are involved in sports and other recreational athletic activities. Here at Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we are steadfast in safeguarding your child’s dental health and ensuring a radiant smile. If your child participates in a sport, we recommend that they be fitted for a custom-designed pediatric sports mouth guard. These protective devices are meticulously crafted to preserve your child’s oral wellbeing during athletic activities, protecting them from injury.
Sports mouth guards, also known as athletic mouth guards, are an indispensable piece of gear for virtually any sport, whether a team sport or an individual sport. They are often required equipment in high-contact sports like wrestling, football, hockey, rugby, soccer and basketball. While you can purchase a generic mouth guard at your local sporting goods store, the best and most effective protection comes from a custom-made mouth guard.
Our pediatric dentist and team specialize in creating these personalized mouth guards, tailored to fit your child’s unique dental structure while also offer maximum protection. A custom mouth guard acts as a barrier against injuries such as knocked-out or chipped teeth, as well as injury to the soft oral tissues such as the tongue, lips, cheeks and gums. Moreover, they play a crucial role in minimizing your child’s risk of jaw or neck injuries.
