So your child is playing a contact sport. Great, tell them to keep up the great work!
Sport has always been a great tool to help children grow in confidence, make friends, and stay healthy. It also creates an awareness at a young age of the benefits of exercise to help keep you healthy.
So, what can go wrong…unfortunately our teeth are very susceptible to damage, especially when playing a contact sport. It would be easy to wrap our children in cotton wool and to stop them from participating – but this could mean your child misses out on an important part of growing up and also stops them from something they enjoy doing.
Mouth guards are a great investment for children who like to play sport. They are affordable and offer a soft protective barrier for your child’s teeth and can soften the blow of direct trauma to the mouth and teeth.
We can make custom made sports guards to fit your child’s teeth perfectly. This will offer the most protection and also make them comfortable to wear.
At any age of our lives it is important to protect our teeth, and educating children at a young age will help develop a respect for mouth guards that can be carried over into adult hood.
