There are many risks associated with children playing contact sport such as soccer, cricket, rugby, kickboxing, basketball or netball. The biggest risk with contact sports? The contact.
Your child can receive a blow to the head, an elbow to the chin, or a knee to the cheek. A mouth guard is an essential piece of safety equipment to help protect their teeth, mouth and jaw.
Without mouth protection we see a variety of injuries in our practice: cut lips, chipped or cracked teeth, tongue damage, jaw injury, knocked out teeth, brain concussion and TMJ issues.
Unprotected, these injuries can require extensive restorative dentistry that can take years to complete. With a mouth guard, these are often preventable. That makes a mouth guard an inexpensive form of insurance.
