At Southern Stars Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to safeguarding the smiles of our young athletes and active children. That is why our pediatric dentists and team offer custom mouth guards, an essential protective gear for their teeth during sports and recreational activities. These guards are tailored to fit perfectly, providing the best protection for your child’s oral health.

What is a Mouth Guard?

A mouth guard is a flexible appliance worn over teeth to protect them from injury during physical activities and sports. It is especially necessary for contact sports like football, basketball, martial arts and even non-contact activities where there is a risk of impact to the face. Custom mouth guards are designed to fit the unique contours of your child’s mouth, providing superior comfort and protection compared to over-the-counter options.

Getting a Custom Mouth Guard

The process involves:

  1. Taking an impression of your child’s teeth to ensure a precise fit.
  2. Crafting the mouth guard in a dental lab using durable, high-quality materials.
  3. A follow-up visit for fitting and adjustments, ensuring maximum comfort and protection.

Benefits of Custom Mouth Guards

  • Tailored Fit: Conforms exactly to your child’s teeth and gums.
  • Enhanced Protection: Reduces the risk of tooth damage and oral injuries.
  • Comfortable to Wear: Encourages regular use during sports and activities.
  • Durable Material: Long-lasting protection for active kids.
