Mouth Guards For Kids Who Play Sports
Kids who play sports are at risk for dental damage. Sports where mouth guards are especially a good idea; hockey, football, wrestling, soccer, martial arts, and basketball. You want to wear a mouth guard to protect teeth from direct contact from another player. With team sports, this is especially true. Kids who wear braces are more at risk for injury, as a quick knock to the face can cause the metal from the braces to dig into soft tissues in the mouth.
At Altman Dental, in Williamsville NY, we can create a mouth guard for you or your child. The difference between our mouth guards and one you could get at a sporting goods store is that ours is molded to an individual mouth. Call our office to find out more information and to schedule an appointment to get an impression done. Your teeth are worth it!
