Why do you recommend custom mouth guards for kids?

Custom Mouth Guards for Kids in Wylie, TX

Our pediatric dentist recommends customized protective mouthguards at our Wylie, TX dental office for patients of all ages who participate in any contact sports.

kids playing tackle football wearing mouth guardsThe Journal for the American Medical Association (JAMA) reports that up to 39 percent of all dental injuries are sports-related, and more than five million teeth are knocked out each year during sports activity.

While most schools mandate protective mouthguards for sports like basketball, soccer, and lacrosse, kids aren’t compliant, and only a small percentage follow through and wears them as needed.

One reason for non-compliance is that generic mouthguards of the boil-and-bite-variety don’t fit very well because they’re uncomfortable and can interfere with your speech. A custom mouthguard, however, is comfortable because it’s designed specifically for your child’s mouth.

Custom Mouthguard Process

At InSmile Dental, we take impressions of your child’s mouth to create a custom mouthguard that conforms precisely to the contours of their mouth. This results in a comfortable, natural-feeling fit, and the increased likelihood that your child will willingly pop it in at game time. And since our custom mouthguards are made of a much more durable material than you can buy at your sporting goods store, they offer significantly more protection for your child’s precious smile.
