Summertime is fun time for many families and their children. Enrolling in summertime sports leagues is one of the best ways to enjoy our longer days and extra spare time.
With added sports and activities come additional risks to your teeth. We see dozens of kids each summer for emergency exams that happened while they were out having fun. Naturally, we think you should keep having an active and fun summer, but recommend taking a few precautions to keep your teeth safe and healthy.
Keep Your Child's Smile Safe
At Keledjian Dental, we offer custom mouthguards, also called sports guards, to help you keep all of your teeth in your head, where they belong. Falling down, a stray ball, and hitting your face on sports equipment can all cause serious injuries including tooth loss.
Our custom mouth guards are superior to the ones you can buy at sports stores because they fit snugly, staying in place to offer the most protection. Additionally, custom mouthguards are less bulky and feel more comfortable, so you are less likely to remove it because it interferes with breathing or rubs against your gums.
We create mouthguards in various colors, offering a fun variety so that you can support your favorite team, or just express yourself with a little flair.
Mouthguards are not just for kids. In fact, many of our adult patients play on summertime leagues, as well, and are just as susceptible to injury. No one can guess where that curve ball might end up, so it is better to stay safe and protect your teeth. Tooth replacement options, root canals, and restorative procedures are all more costly than protecting yourself with a mouthguard.
Be sure to have your child’s mouthguard checked regularly because their smiles change all the time and we want to ensure a proper fit for the greatest benefit.
