Do you have a son or daughter who plays youth sports? Soccer, baseball, football, and basketball can be very dangerous for your child’s teeth. At Almeida & Bell Geneal, Cosmetic & Sedation Dentistry in Lone Tree, we strongly recommend using a mouth guard.
Football is a rugged contact sport, yet there is a relatively low rate of tooth injuries that occur in football as compared to other contact sports. Why? Football players are required to wear a mouth guard and a helmet.
Inexpensive athletic mouth guards are worth their weight in gold!
If your child participates in a contact sport and does not currently wear a mouth guard, we recommend that you pick up an appropriately-sized mouth guard and make sure they wear it. They are available at most athletic supply stores. At Almeida & Bell, we can make a customized mouth guard that delivers even better protection than the one-size-fits-all brands.
When it comes to your child’s teeth, you don’t want to take any chances at all. It’s better to be safe than sorry! Custom mouth guards from Almeida & Bell Geneal, Cosmetic & Sedation Dentistry in Lone Tree provide the protection young athlete’s need. We also offer a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry.
