Mouthguards are a simple way to ensure your children’s smiles don’t get damaged from grinding or trauma. Smile Studio Kids is proud to offer mouthguards and other pediatric dental services to residents of Fairburn, Atlanta, and the nearby areas of Georgia.
What is a Mouthguard?
If your child participates in any kind of full-contact sport, the American Dental Association recommends that he or she wears a mouthguard. Besides being painful, a child’s sports related injury can mean time lost from school and work, plus a substantial cost. A properly fitted, comfortable mouthguard, worn at practice and games, can greatly reduce the likelihood of serious dental injury.
How is a Mouthguard Made?
Your child’s custom mouth guard will be made from an impression of their teeth. This impression can be done by Dr. Erika Venn in the comfort of our beautiful office. The teeth impression process typically only takes a few minutes to complete. After the impressions are made, they will be sent to a lab where a custom mouth guard will be made to fit your child’s teeth.
What are the Benefits of Having a Mouthguard?
There are many benefits of receiving a custom mouthguard, including:
- Prevents tooth damage while playing contact sports
- Custom-fitted to your child’s teeth for maximum comfort
- Specially designed to cover all the teeth in one arch
- Made from FDA-approved materials
