Spring Sports season has just begun and for most schools that means baseball, lacrosse, rugby and volleyball. All can be highly damaging to your child’s mouth and teeth. Did you know that more than 5 million teeth will be knocked out from sporting activities this year? But, it is also estimated that over 200,000 oral injuries will be prevented by custom fitted mouth guards. Protect your child's teeth with a custom fitted sportsguard mouth guard.
More than 34% of sports injuries involve the face. But research also shows that a risk of injury is decreased 99% of the time when a play safe mouth guard is being used.
But there is more to our sports mouth guard than just protection. Store bought mouth guards are not custom made for your child’s mouth so they are not as effective. Also, generic mouth guards cannot be modified for braces or missing teeth and require the athlete to have their jaw clenched when playing.
Our mouth guards will stay in place with no effort, so your child’s attention can be on the game. They offer more protection than over the counter mouth guards. Boil and bite mouth guards often fit poorly with thin spots and holes from biting through the material.
