Dentist in Ogden, Utah: Your Child Needs a Mouth Guard
As spring creeps closer, my kids, and perhaps yours,are starting up things like soccer, baseball, or many other outdoor sports.
No doubt that these activities will lead to a few bumps and bruises. In time these bumps, bruises, and even broken bones will heal.
Something that would not heal however, is a broken tooth. Teeth, unlike bones, will not grow back. To save teeth requires root canals, crowns, and any number of other things.
Please, Please, Please … get your child a mouth guard to wear during their sporting events.
The ones that you can buy from the store and mold to your child’s teeth will do, but a custom made mouth guard from a dentist is the best way to go.
I don’t care if you get one from me or the other guy. That is not the point. The point is to protect your child’s teeth. They will have them for a very long time.
