School is out and busy summer sports are now taking place! If your child participates in high-impact sports or recreational activities, you’ll want to make sure they have all the right safety equipment, including helmets, kneepads, elbow pads and a sports mouth guard!
While summer is a great time to be outdoors for athletic events it is also a time that is ripe for sports injuries. Oral injuries are common during the summer months when children spend more time outdoors participating in physical activities with their friends or in community sports. You want to make sure your active child’s teeth and jaws are as protected as their head, arms and legs. A mouth guard is specifically designed to cushion your child’s teeth, gums, cheeks, lips and jaw from accidental injury or trauma.
Our dentist, Jerry L Butler DDS MAGD, offers protective custom mouth guards in Boone, NC, to keep your child’s smile safe while they play. Our mouth guards are molded to the specifics of your child’s mouth so that it fits and feels most comfortable over their teeth, making them safer and allowing them to breathe easily.
It doesn’t matter if your child is riding their bike up and down the street or around town, playing football or soccer on a team or skateboarding at a local park, you want to make sure their smiles are safe from chipped, cracked, broken or knocked-out teeth! This is especially true if they are currently wearing braces with wires and brackets. We welcome you to bring your child in for a custom sports mouth guard fitting so that they can enjoy being active without risking an oral injury. Call us today at 828-264-5858 to schedule their visit!
