Custom Protection For Your Child’s Teeth
From soccer to bike riding to football and skateboarding, kids are playing more active sports now than ever before. An injury to your child’s face and teeth could affect your child’s oral health for a lifetime. When a child’s tooth is lost or damaged due to sports injury, the emotional effect upon the child as well as the financial cost for the family can be overwhelming. Many sports activities now require protective equipment to reduce the risk of an injury to your child. The purpose of a sports mouthguard is to protect the teeth, lips, cheeks, and tongue, dramatically reducing the incidence and severity of dental injuries.
Dr. Jacobsen recommends a custom mouthguard for children and teens during sports activities where an injury to the face and teeth could occur. A custom mouthguard is more comfortable for your child, and allows easier breathing and speech than a store-bought mouthguard. Our form-fitted mouthguards are custom made for your child using a dental impression, or imprint, of the teeth. Your child can choose from a variety of colors, or can combine up to three different colors for the mouthguard. We can also place a strap on the mouthguard to be attached to a helmet.
Now is a great time to give your child’s teeth the best protection available. Please contact us for pricing and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jacobsen for your child’s custom mouthguard.
