Dental Mouth Guards
Kids are notoriously clumsy, but add in a sporting environment and you’re in for trouble! Flying elbows, hockey sticks, even the ground can do severe damage to your child’s front teeth, so it is important to protect them wherever you can. The most common injury to teeth are to the most important teeth for your smile – the two central upper teeth – so we recommend having a custom-fitted mouthguard made for any contact sports.
Custom fitted mouth guards can be made in many colors, which make wearing them a bit more fun. They fit really well, unlike the ‘boil and bite’ mouth guards at sports stores, so they are comfortable and work much better. Most surprisingly to some, if you have health insurance, most health funds will pay for a custom mouth guard, often making it cheaper too!
