Raleigh Custom Athletic Mouthguards

Playing sports is a wonderful way for kids to stay active and learn teamwork, but you want to make sure they are protected. You want them to wear the right protective gear, from their helmet to their shin guards. Make sure your child’s teeth, tongue, gums and lips are also protected with a custom athletic mouthguard. As part of our dental services at Rolling Ridge Dentistry, we create athletic mouthguards that are comfortable and formed perfectly for your child’s mouth.

It is estimated that nearly half of sports injuries are to the head or face. Athletic mouthguards protect the teeth, jaw, lips and tongue from injury, especially in rough contact sports like football, rugby or hockey. There is even evidence that a properly fitting mouthguard may help reduce the chance of concussion, as well as dental or mouth injuries. Avoid expensive and painful dental injuries by getting the best protection for your child’s teeth with one of our custom athletic mouthguards.

Although there are athletic mouthguards that can be purchased ready-made, these tend to feel bulky and uncomfortable. At Rolling Ridge Dentistry, Dr. Thomas will use impressions of the teeth to create a customized athletic mouthguard that fits perfectly in your child’s mouth. These mouthguards are more comfortable and give better protection for your child’s beautiful smile.

If you are interested in having Dr. Thomas fit you or your child for an athletic mouthguard, contact our office today to schedule an appointment at Rolling Ridge Dentistry. We will be happy to help you get the protective gear you need for your smile.
