Sports Mouthguards

Sports Mouthguards

If you have a growing athlete on your hands, then you are likely already investing in a lot of protective sports equipment such as knee and elbow pads. It is vital that you also take the time to invest in some protection for your child’s teeth.

 

It may surprise you to find out that the mouth is the most commonly injured part of the body during sports. However, you can minimize and even prevent this possibility of injury by wearing a mouthguard.

 

A mouthguard works by covering the upper teeth, and helps to lower the impact on the teeth, lips, cheeks, jaw, and tongue when accidents occur. Speak to your dentist about which type of mouthguard is best for your child’s needs.

 

Your child’s dentist can create a custom mouthguard. Although this type of mouthguard is more expensive than stock mouthguards bought at the store, it provides better protection and eases speaking and breathing for your child.

 

Looking after a mouthguard is easy. Rinse it under cold water after every use and make sure to occasionally clean it with soap and cool water. Mouthguards can eventually wear out or break, so be sure to replace it after each sporting season.
