Mouthguards An Overview
A custom mouthguard can provide the most effective barrier between your child’s smile and potential damage or tooth loss. Dr. Miller recommends that any child who participates in contact sports or activities that could result in a mouth injury should consider a mouthguard to be part of their uniform. Pediatric Dentistry of Winter Park offers custom sports mouthguards for children and teens. A custom appliance can provide key benefits for active patients when compared to over the counter options:
- Customized fit for maximum comfort and protection
- Wearer can drink fluids and speak while the mouthguard is in place
- No need to bite down or clench the teeth to keep in place, saving precious energy for on-field performance and endurance
A custom mouthguard is available in fun colors so your young athlete can match team colors or pick their favorite color. If your child is wearing braces or an oral appliance, a custom mouthguard will fit over either comfortably and snugly, protecting your child’s smile- and your investment.
