Sports welcome all sorts of dental emergencies. When your child begins to participate in recreational activities and organized sports, injuries can (and most likely WILL) occur.

A properly fitted mouth guard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear that can help protect your child’s pearly-whites, and should be used during any activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth. Mouth guards help prevent injuries to the lips, jaw, face, tongue and help prevent broken teeth. Don’t worry, a well-fitted mouth guard will be comfortable, and your child will still be able to talk and breathe. Call us or ask Dr. Riehs about custom and store-bought mouth protectors.
