Mouthguards for Sports
Playing sports is an essential part of schooling for kids living in the Arvada, CO area. But some sports, especially football, soccer, and hockey pose a risk of breakage or damage to kids’ teeth. A bad tackle, accidental contact, or a ball or puck flying in the wrong direction can spoil a smile.
Let your child take to the field in confidence and style with a custom mouthguard shaped to fit and protect your child’s teeth.
Dr. Betty Yip likes nothing more than protecting the teeth of the whole team, especially with team colors! Professional athletes wear mouthguards, and we know how much kids want to be like their heroes they see on the TV or in the stadium, so get your kid’s mouthguard measured and made at Clover Kids Dentistry!
Mouthguards for Sleep
Mouthguards also have a role to play away from the sports field. At night, they can be used to combat your child’s teeth grinding and clenching while they sleep, and can even reduce snoring.
How to Get a Mouthguard for Your Child
Book your child an appointment with Dr Betty for an assessment and fitting, and the following will happen:
- An impression of your child’s mouth is taken
- A stone cast of your child’s teeth is created
- A thermoplastic material is placed over the cast
- The resulting appliance is trimmed to ensure a comfort fit
Mouthguards should always be made to custom-fit over your child’s teeth. This ensures they grip well and won’t fall out. Dr Betty has plenty of experience of carrying out the measuring, making, and fitting required in production. They are safe, comfortable, and won’t fall out, so your child can score and celebrate that touchdown or goal with complete confidence.
Your child can even design their own mouthguard. Protect your healthy smile with style!
- Choose your colors
- Choose your design
- Add stickers
