If your child plays sports, you know that proper protective gear is vital to defend against injury, but is your child’s smile protected? An athletic mouthguard is an inexpensive way to keep teeth safe and protect smiles from sports-related damage.
Dr. Farthing and Dr. Tepner create custom mouthguards that fit snugly on teeth to shield against trauma. Mouthguards are an obvious choice for contact sports, but the ADA also recommends mouthguards for activities such as gymnastics, tennis, and cycling. Athletic mouthguards are durable, comfortable, and easy to clean. Because up to 40% of all sports-related injuries involve the face, a mouthguard is a wise investment in long-term health and safety.
