Whether or not the sport your child plays is high-impact, wearing a mouthguard might be helpful in case your child clenches his or her teeth during the game.

There are many types of mouthguards. Some are pre-formed while others are customized to fit a child’s teeth and jaw. Most mouthguards are used only on the top teeth, though some children need to have mouthguards on both their top and bottom teeth.

After a thorough examination, we would be happy to discuss your options so you can protect your child’s teeth from grinding at night and damage during sports activities.
