Custom Dental Athletic Mouthguards
Sports give kids a chance to get some exercise, make friends, learn about teamwork, and most of all---have fun! However, sports can be rough on the body, which is why most athletes---professional or otherwise---wear protective gear. Helmets, shin guards, shoulder pads, elbow pads, and mouth guards keep young athletes safe so they can continue playing and practicing safely.
Types of Athletic Mouthguards
Teeth are strong, but even a wall of enamel can’t deflect a heavy hit. For sports like wrestling and football, a mouthguard is essential. There are a few different types of mouthguards available: stock mouth guards, boil and bite, and custom-fitted.
If your child is involved in a sport and you want to research protective gear further, consider the benefits of a custom athletic mouth guard versus store-bought. At Cool Mountain Kids, we can make a mouth guard perfectly suited for your child’s teeth so that they are kept snug and secure. Ask Dr. Derek about options for custom mouth guard for your athlete
