Kids who take part in sports activities are at risk of injuring their teeth. Sports-related dental injuries can result in children losing time from school and parents paying thousands of dollars to have their kids’ teeth and jaws fixed. The good news is a comfortable mouth guard can help protect children’s mouths and parent’s pocketbooks.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends wearing a mouth guard for various contact sports. According to the ADA, people who don't wear mouth guards are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) calls for using mouth guards during any sport.

A custom-made mouth guard protects the entire mouth from traumatic injury. Best of all for parents, the cost is very reasonable and far cheaper than dental surgery after an accident.
