Playing it safe with your teeth.
Southeast Smiles suggests your child wear a mouthguard for protection during athletic activities. It’s also best to get a mouthguard that is customized and fitted by your dentist. At Southeast Smiles, we can make one that is both comfortable and durable for your child and their sport.
Like all athletic equipment, a mouthguard will get worn down and become less effective over time. When this happens, it can irritate your child’s teeth and gum tissue. Because of this, we also recommend checking on the condition of your mouthguard on a regular basis and replacing it as needed.
