You love attending those football and soccer games, and there is nothing much more thrilling than watching your child score the winning goal. But sports are more than fun – keeping kids physically active is one of the best things you can do for them to prevent childhood obesity and encourage a lifetime of health. Unfortunately, school sports and after-school activities such as skateboarding or horseback riding can be hazardous to your child’s teeth.
Never fear: ARCH Orthodontics offers custom-designed sports mouthguards for our Boston area pediatric patients. Unlike over-the-counter, boil-and-bite mouthguards, our sports guards are individually created from molds we take of your child’s teeth right here in our Stoughton office and sent to our in-office, world-class lab for fabrication. That means that they:
- Fit your child’s teeth like a glove for superior comfort and extended wear
- Protect teeth from being chipped, fractured or knocked out
- And help prevent jaw fractures.
In fact, custom, dentist-made mouthguards have been shown to reduce your child’s risk for concussion (as compared to over-the-counter guards) by up to 50%! Don’t risk those precious smiles. Choose custom-made sports mouthguards from ARCH Orthodontics.
