It is estimated by the American Dental Association that mouthguards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year in high school and collegiate football alone. Properly diagnosed, designed and custom fit mouthguards are essential in the prevention of athletic oral and facial injuries. If your child plays sports or other similar activities, mouthguards are a great way to protect them from concussions and their teeth from potential injury. Ebright & Smart Family Dentistry offers custom made mouthguards for your children that fit properly; are comfortable, resilient, and tasteless; and cause minimal interference with speaking and breathing. Additionally, mouthguards are easy to clean and come in many color combinations.
To keep you from seriously damaging your teeth, we recommend a dental appliance called a nightguard, which protects your teeth from grinding and clenching in your sleep.
