Benefits of Athletic Mouthguards
It’s always a delight to watch your child take part in an activity they enjoy, but you want to make sure they stay protected to avoid serious injury. By coming to see Dr. Cory and Dr. Nicole for an athletic mouthguard, you’ll discover these oral appliances offer many great benefits, such as:
- Optimal tooth protection
- Minimizing potential damage to the jaw, root, or bone
- Keeping smiles healthier and fully intact
- Greater comfort that allows them to be worn for longer
- Fully customizable so that they fit your child’s mouth properly
- Better breathing so that your child will keep their mouthguard in during the game
How are Mouthguards Made?
The mouthguards created by our team at G&G Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics are made by first taking digital impressions of your child’s smile. Instead of using cold, messy dental putty, we simply scan their smile with our iTero digital impression system. Not only does this make for a more enjoyable experience, but the images immediately transfer to specialized software that allows us to make any necessary adjustments before sending the three-dimensional model off to lab technicians. There, they will fabricate your child’s mouthguard using comfortable materials that feel good once inside the mouth.
At G&G Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we are pleased to offer free mouthguards for all existing patients who are involved in sports. After completing the comprehensive exam and any pending treatments, our team will go over the specifics that are included in this truly unique and money-saving offer.
