Make Mouthguards Part of Your Children's Sporting Gear

by Monticello Dental on 02/18/15

One of the best decisions you can make for your child if they play sports is to invest in a well-fitted mouthguard. Wearing a proper mouthguard will help to avoid unnecessary injury to your child’s teeth, jaw, and lips. Although ready-made guards are less expensive, having a custom-made guard from your dentist is a better choice. A custom guard provides flexibility and lasts longer, is more comfortable, simple to clean, and allows for clearer speech and breathing. Remember, when it comes to sporting activities, making a custom mouthguard part of your sports gear is a must.

So, if you have been putting off treatment because you no longer had benefits to cover your appointments, now may be the time to schedule your next visit to the dentist.
