Why custom mouthguards in Fort Worth are the better choice
You can purchase child’s mouthguards for sport for as little as a few dollars and usually they fall under the guise of stock mouthguards and boil and bite safety guards. Most sporting goods stores sell these types and while they do offer protection, it’s thought to be in a relatively limited capacity. Of the two types, the boil and bite variety offers more protection as they can be molded onto the teeth for a better fit.
Alternatively, custom mouth guards for kids are made by your dentist. While you may probably pay a little more, they offer the greatest protection – Why? Because they’re custom made to fit the exact contours of your child’s mouth. Here’s how we make the best children’s mouthguards in Fort Worth.
We begin by taking an impression of your child’s teeth. Then from the mold taken the mouthguard is made. We can even utilize your child’s team colors if they want. While they may be more expensive and (because they’re custom-made) take longer to fit, they’re often far more comfortable and fully approved by the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD).
Other reasons for custom mouthguards for kids in Fort Worth?
One well known pediatric dental condition is bruxism or teeth grinding. Experts suggest that 2-3 out of every 10 kids will grind their teeth at night. As it occurs mainly when the child is asleep, many won’t even know they’re doing it. While most children do grow out of it, our custom nightguards for kids help to protect the teeth from the symptoms of bruxism when they need it most. These include jaw pain, excessive tooth wear, and tension headaches.
