Should My Child Wear a Mouthguard?

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

If you're a parent of an athlete, you have probably witnessed an injury or two.

Sports injuries of any kind are never fun, but with the proper equipment, you can greatly lower the risk of injury. One way to protect your child during sports is by purchasing a mouthguard.
Mouthguards do more than protect teeth; they also defend your jaw, lips, tongue, and face from a potential impact. At Lechner Dental Group, we suggest every athlete and parent of an athlete purchase a mouthguard. Most sports should be played using a mouthguard, which you can read more about here.
We want our patients to have a healthy smile their whole life. To do this, proper care is important. One simple way to keep your mouth protected is by using a mouthguard.

From Our Patients:

Dr. Lechner has been my dentist for as long as he's been in Delaware. He was the first dentist to recognize that my having had rheumatic fever meant that I should take an antibiotoc prior to a dentist visit. From that time forward, I have not come down with any sort of illness following a dentis appointment. Thank you for all these wonderful years of healthy teeth and general good health!
