3 Ways Mouthguards Prevent Kids’ Sports Injuries

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, we treat far too many sports injuries. These run the gamut, and include knocked out teeth, broken teeth, and mouth lacerations.

Many of these injuries could be minimized or even prevented with the proper protective gear.

All athletes who participate in contact sports are at risk of injuries to their mouth and teeth. It doesn’t matter if you are a professional athlete or a 6-year-old playing youth soccer. Even so-called non-contact sports like basketball carry the risk of accidental mouth injuries.

An athletic mouth guard can:

  1. Absorb force from impact
  2. Prevent broken teeth
  3. Prevent lip and tongue injuries

A custom mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be used from an early age. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX we want everyone participating in sports to protect their teeth with an athletic mouth guard. That includes weekend warrior grownups! People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
