Questions about mouthguards

Why is wearing a mouthguard important for children?

Wearing a mouthguard is crucial for children because it helps protect their teeth, gums, and jaws from potential injuries during sports activities and active play. Mouthguards reduce the risk of dental trauma and give you peace of mind.

Are custom mouthguards better than generic ones?

Yes, custom mouthguards are designed specifically for your child’s unique dental structure, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. They provide optimal protection and are more comfortable to wear compared to generic alternatives. We specialize in creating custom mouthguards that offer the highest level of safety and comfort for your child.

How often should my child replace their mouthguard?

We recommend replacing your child’s mouthguard at least once a year or whenever it shows signs of wear and tear. Regular use and contact with saliva can affect the durability and hygiene of the mouthguard. Additionally, as your child’s dental structure may change over time, it’s important to ensure a proper fit for optimal protection.
