Active kids are a joy to watch at soccer games, baseball tournaments, or just jumping on the trampoline. But it’s really important to protect their teeth while they’re having fun! Custom mouthguards are a game-changer in safeguarding your child’s smile and even lowering their risk of a concussion. At East Cobb Orthodontics in Marietta, GA, we offer professionally made mouthguards that offer the highest level of protection.
Mouthguards for Sports
Whether your child is into gymnastics, basketball, or any sport where injuries happen, a custom mouthguard provides the ultimate protection. Unlike store-bought options, custom appliances are designed to fit your child’s mouth perfectly, offering superior protection and being easier to wear. They act as a cushion, absorbing impact and preventing dental injuries like a chipped or knocked-out tooth.
Mouthguards for Teeth Grinding
Another type of mouthguard we can make is for teeth grinding. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is common among children, especially at night. It can contribute to problems like worn-down teeth, headaches, and jaw pain. Custom mouthguards are crafted to match your child’s bite. They create a barrier between the upper and lower teeth, preventing the harmful effects of grinding.
By addressing bruxism early on, we can help protect your child’s dental health and get a better night’s sleep.
