Pediatric sports mouth guards are designed to protect children’s teeth and mouths while they participate in sports or physical activities. Our mouth guards are made of a soft, flexible material that molds to the child’s teeth and gums to provide a comfortable, custom fit. A mouth guard is designed to prevent injuries to the teeth, gums and jaw during activities that include a lot of potential physical contact. They can also help reduce the risk of concussions by absorbing impact forces that would otherwise be transmitted to the head and brain.
Additionally, wearing a mouth guard can help prevent children from biting their tongues or cheeks during physical activity and may even improve their performance by helping them to breathe more easily. It is important for parents to ensure that their child wears a properly fitting mouth guard while participating in sports or other physical activities to help prevent injuries and protect their oral health.
We can create your child’s own personal mouth guards at Salt Lake Pediatric Dentistry. Call us at 385-378-5791 today to schedule their treatment.
