Wearing a custom-fitted mouth guard will better protect your child's teeth from damage during sports activity compared with store-bought guards that don't fit well. We'll answer your questions about mouth guards when you set up a consultation meeting in our office to discuss the costs and benefits of treatment. Feel free to explore our resources online, as well, for additional information about how a mouth guard will save you money over time.
What Are the Benefits of Wearing a Sports Mouth Guard?
If your child participates in sports, there are many reasons to bring them in to Clarington Dental Centre for a custom-fitting for a mouth guard. Teeth incur damage during sports in several ways:
- Direct impact from equipment
- Collision with other players
- Fall injuries, where the mouth meets the ground
Even non-contact sports result in injuries that negatively impact teeth so that the type of sport is not always a good indication of whether your child needs to wear a mouth guard. Custom mouth guards in Bowmanville offer all of the following advantages:
- Protect teeth
- Protect soft mouth tissue from cuts
- Protect against other types of injury, such as jaw injuries
Does My Child Need to Wear a Mouth Guard During Sports?
Unless your child is on the swim team, the answer is a resounding 'yes'. You'll want to consider a custom-fitting mouth guard that prevents injury from happening on the field, court, or gym- and while your child may not appreciate wearing a mouth guard, they'll thank you for it in the long run. See our staff at Clarington Dental Centre for comfortable guards that protect during the following activities:
- Ice, field, and ground hockey
- Football, rugby, and soccer
- Martial Arts
- Non-traditional sports, like skateboarding & rollerblading
Custom vs. Store-Bought Guards
Don't settle for inferior products sold in the store that advertise a one-size-fits-all approach to protecting your child's teeth. The fact remains, only custom mouth guards in Bowmanville fit well enough to protect against injury and offer superior material protection as well. At Clarington Dental Centre, we provide same-day mouth guards, eliminating the typical wait between the initial fitting and the second visit when you leave the dentist with your guard. We've invested in advanced equipment to provide you with faster service because we don't want your child to participate in sports while unprotected.
