Are you or your child involved in sports like baseball, basketball, football, hockey, and soccer? Studies conducted by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry estimate that up to 39% of dental injuries occur while playing sport and up to 90% of those dental injuries involve the upper front teeth.
When you consider these statistics, it’s easy to understand the need for you and your child to wear a protective mouthguard while participating in sports. At Central Dental we want to ensure your family’s oral health by doing everything possible to help protect their teeth from damage of any type, including sports injuries.
It is especially important to provide adequate protection for children whose young teeth are still developing. Depending on your child’s age, a dental injury can be traumatic, but it can also have a significant impact on their future oral health. Even injuries that you may consider “minor” can cause potentially serious and costly damage.
Athletic mouthguards that are custom fabricated at Central Dental have an advantage over store-bought “boil and bite” mouth guards. Our mouth guards are sturdy and customized to fit your mouth perfectly without hampering your performance; in fact, they may enhance performance as proper jaw positioning may allow for increased oxygenation. Furthermore, the appliance reduces clenching which prevents the release of performance hindering hormones.
Custom fabricated athletic mouthguards are more costly than the generic store-bought alternatives because they are constructed of high quality material. The added benefits of comfort, durability, performance enhancement possibilities, and superior protection easily justify the investment. As parents, we want the best for our children. Central Dental’s custom fabricated mouthguards are the best when it comes to sports and dental safety.
Avoid risking injury to your teeth during sports activities by contacting one of our offices to schedule your fitting for a custom fabricated mouthguard.
