Custom athletic mouth guards available at Pruce Dental are far superior to generic guards found at a sporting goods store.
They are not only more durable, but unlike generic stock or “boil and bite” mouth guards, we fabricate your custom athletic guard using impressions of your teeth. This results in a perfect fit that protects all surfaces of your teeth because it is specifically made to fit your mouth. A comfortable fit is important for athletic guards because it means you or your child will be more likely to wear the guard.
Protecting your child’s teeth during athletic activity is essential. Estimates provided by the American Dental Association indicate that mouth guards prevent 200,000 oral injuries annually. It’s great that we are getting better in general about protecting our kids’ teeth during sports. But the National Youth Sports Foundation estimates that millions of teeth will still be knocked out in sporting activities each year.
This is unfortunate and unnecessary. If you or your child participates in any type of sports activity, you owe it to yourself to give us a call. Creating a custom mouth guard is easy, and it will give you peace of mind knowing that your child’s precious teeth are adequately protected.
