It’s back to school time, which means that the kids are running back onto the soccer and football fields in droves. Other sports are also getting into gear, so it is a time to revisit the idea of protective mouth guards.
The mouth guard is a wonderful tool to help avoid sports-related dental injuries. It is an essential piece of equipment for all people who play contact sports.
Protective mouth guards are also recommended patients who skateboard and participate in other activities that involve risk. The custom fitted mouth guard is individually designed and fitted in the dental office, using an impression made of the teeth.
