Do your kids wear seatbelts in the car? What about helmets when they’re riding their bike? We’re guessing the answer is yes. But do they wear athletic mouthguards when they’re skateboarding? What about when playing basketball or softball? If your kiddos participate in any sports or athletic activities, or if they will be soon, make sure their precious smiles are protected with sports guards.
At Tulip Tree Dental Care, we can make your athlete a custom athletic mouthguard to help prevent cracked teeth, broken teeth, knocked-out teeth, gum and tissue injuries, jawbone injuries, and possibly even concussions. Custom mouthguards are made of more durable, higher-quality material than ones you can get at a sporting goods store or online. They’re more comfortable, too, so all these are reasons to consider talking to Dr. Hurcomb about one today.
