The benefits of joining a sports team or living an active lifestyle are innumerable. Not only does playing sports create strong bones, develop muscles, and improve cardiovascular health, it also grows friendships, aids in cognitive health and builds confidence in your child. In an age of technology when children are buried in the screens of their handheld devices, getting them outside is crucial. But, the harder your child plays, the more likely that injuries can occur and the more beneficial it is to have protective equipment.

A customized mouth guard is a key component to any child’s protective gear. Although mouth guards are required for hockey and football, your child’s teeth are at risk while playing basketball or baseball as well. Having a customized mouth guard will make wearing mouth protection more comfortable for your child, which means they’ll be more likely to use it rather than leaving it in their backpack!

What to Expect with a Customized Mouth Guard

A customized mouth guard is different from store-bought guards because it is made using molds or impressions taken of your child’s teeth and bite to fit perfectly. It is created with high-quality, resilient materials that will make it easy to wear. Because it is formed over your child’s individual teeth impression or mold, it will offer the best protection and comfortability, as compared to any type of store-bought mouth guard.
