Sports Mouth Guard Special
Protect Your Child’s Smile This Sport Season!
Winter Garden Smiles Pediatric Dentistry knows kids! They are full of energy; and playing sports is a great way for them to release that energy. Playing a sport also helps kids build teamwork skills, physical endurance, and it makes it easier for them to go to sleep at bedtime. From soccer to football and everything in between, protection is always required when playing sports, and can range anywhere from a football helmet and mouth guard, to kneepads and shin guards. But no matter how cautious your child may be while playing a sport, there is always a chance of injury and possibly damaging their developing smile. According to Colgate, the use of a sports (or mouth) guard among football players is believed to prevent about 200,000 mouth injuries a year. Have your child fitted for a mouth guard at Winter Garden Smiles, your Windermere, Ocoee, and Greater Orlando Family & Pediatric Dentist.
There are a few options when choosing a mouth guard for your child:
Stock or ready-made: Most commonly sold in stores, this option is manufactured in a pre-formed shape in various sizes for adults and youth. However, there are limited adjustment options—using a knife or scissors (yikes!)—And, if not fitted correctly, can irritate the gums and may not provide adequate protection.
Mouth-adapted: Also known as the “boil and bite”, the mouth-adapted option is manufactured in a pre-formed shape similar to the stock option, but is made with a thermo-plastic material—ethylene-vinyl acetate is most common—that’s manipulated by heat. The consumer boils water, places the mouth guard in the water, and then places the heated mouth guard in the mouth to form around the teeth for a custom fit.
Custom-made: Winter Garden Smiles pediatric dentistry creates custom-made sports guard usable for any sport, and safely protects your child’s teeth, tongue, and lips. This option saves the hassle of trial and error and the possibility of burning yourself with boiling hot water. Protect your child’s smile this sport season with a custom-made mouth guard at our Winter Garden dental office.
