School has started and so has the fall sports season. Playing team sports are a wonderful experience for children. There are many physical and emotional health benefits.
There can also be safety and protection issues. Any sport can increase head and mouth trauma. Injury can not be completely eliminated but damage can be lessened.
Mouth guards can decrease the potential for harm by up to 60%.
Besides preventing permanent loss or disfigurement of the most visible, front teeth, mouth guards can prevent concussion.
The younger your child starts wearing a mouth guard, the more likely they are to continue through their sporting career. Custom fitting mouth guards allow your child to speak and breathe more comfortably, performing with the greatest confidence.
