Here at Valley Pediatric Dental, we are proud to offer sports mouth guards to our patients.
As a pediatric dentistry, we are determined to make sure that your children’s mouths and teeth are well protected during sports activities, no matter what their particular passions are. To do this, we offer many different types of mouth guards, depending on the types of activities in which they are involved. There are some mouth guards for low-impact sports and others for high-impact sports.
Mouth guards not only protect the mouth and teeth, but also have other purposes. Mouth guards will help decrease the impact if a child gets hit in the jaw. They have also been shown to increase an athlete’s performance.
Many children clench their teeth while playing, which can give them temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder (TMD). Clenching their jaws the whole time can be quite exhausting. Mouth guards help to relax their jaws, allowing them to completely focus on the game!
