Protect Your Child’s Teeth with Regular Check Ups and a Mouth Guard for Sports.
“The American Academy of Otolaryngology says that, when a ball hits your upper face, it can fracture the delicate bones around the sinuses and eye sockets.”
And they add that it “sometimes results in vision loss.” Additionally, Nasal injuries can result in breathing difficulties. This is among the most serious injuries.
It is not hard to recognize that teeth, tongue, and bone must be protected. Your pediatric dentist brings you the first-line defense, a custom-made mouth-guard.
It’s designed to protect every tooth against destruction as well as protect bones and gums.
Of course, it’s more expensive to buy a custom-fitted dental mouth guard than the “over the counter type..” However, it fits better. And because a custom-fitted mouthguard is more comfortable, kids will wear it more often.
