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.
