Mouthguards are particularly important for ALL AGES when playing ANY contact sport. Admire Dentistry provides custom-fitted mouthguards for all sporting types. Injuries to the teeth, mouth and the jaw are some of the most common injuries that occur on the sporting field. Getting your child to wear a mouth guard earlier in life will ensure they get used to wearing and talking with it while playing. By doing this, wearing a mouthguard will become the normal for them later in life when playing sport.
A mouthguard is a cushioning appliance made of flexible material that fits firmly over the teeth to prevent injuries. A custom fitting mouthguard is essentially a helmet for your teeth. It acts as a shock absorber and reduces the risk of injury to the teeth and jaw joint while preventing you from biting your lips, tongue or cheeks.
Regardless of age or the contact sport, our team always recommends a custom mouthguard. These can be very affordable and can save you thousands of dollars in damages that could be caused when not wearing one. Damages to the hard and soft tissues of the mouth can be very expensive to repair, and can lead to long term functional problems later in life. We are so passionate about protecting your teeth that we are always open to helping out financially to ensure you, and especially your children, have the perfect mouthguard for the sport.
