Like any parent, you want the best for your child. When they play a sport, you accept the risks involved, but still, their safety is paramount.
That means making sure they have the right gear to be fully protected against possible injuries.
An athletic mouthguard is an important part of their equipment!
That’s why you should visit Bayou Dental Group now to make sure your child has a completely customized athletic mouthguard for the fall sports season.
Get The Best Mouthguard For Your Athlete!
Today, your Monroe family dentist wants you to know the difference between some of the athletic mouthguards available on the market and how you can ensure the investment you’re making is the right one.
Your cheapest mouthguards are going to be found at the local sporting goods store. Stock guards, however, aren’t saving you much money in the long run.
That’s because they’re sold as a one-size-fits-all device, and consequently, they’re often way too big for younger athletes. That means either your child won’t wear it because it’s uncomfortable, or if they do, it will slip and slide around inside their mouth and fail to adequately protect teeth and gums like they should.
You may save money at first with a stock guard, but the injuries your child could sustain while wearing one may have you spending more money on costly dental treatments later.
With boil-and-bite mouthguards, it’s common for many parents to feel a false sense of security because this type creates the illusion of a better fit, and thus, better protection.
That’s due to the shaping process where the athlete bites down on the guard after it’s been heated, allowing it to mold to the dimensions of their mouth as it cools. But even then, the boil-and-bite guards are still too big, bulky, and uncomfortable for young athletes to get the job done.
The only way to have peace of mind about the safety of your child’s smile during the fall sports season is with a customized mouthguard from your Monroe dentist.
We take detailed measurements of their teeth to create their athletic mouthguard that fits and protects the way it’s supposed to. It will be sleek and comfortable enough that they won’t mind wearing it, yet it will be durable enough to withstand a strong impact should your child collide, fall, or experience any other mishap common during sports activities.
