Summer is typically a more active time for families. Southern Cross Dental wants the community we serve to know we can help them take an important safety precaution for sports activities. Athletes participating in any contact sport are advised to wear some kind of mouth protection. Wearing a mouth guard during sports helps prevent damage to the teeth, jaw, cheeks, and even the tongue and lips!
Most sporting goods stores carry mouth guards, but they are generic in size and fit. These mouth guards often end up feeling bulky and uncomfortable, leading to child and teenage athletes in particular not wearing the protection at all. An ill-fitting mouth guard can even interrupt breathing and speaking. Come see us and have a dentist perform a custom mouth guard fitting. You’ll get a mouth guard made of thin, hard plastic that protects your teeth and still fits comfortably, and you can go right back to playing your best!
