Do you have a son or daughter that plays youth sports? Soccer, baseball, football, and basketball can be very dangerous for your child’s teeth. A mouth guard from Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa can make a all the difference.
Football is a violent contact sport, yet there is a relatively low rate of tooth injuries that occur in football as compared to other contact sports. Why? Football players are required to wear a mouth guard and a helmet.
Inexpensive athletic dental mouth guards are worth their weight in gold!
If your child participates in a contact sport and does not currently wear a mouth guard, we recommend that you pick up an appropriately-sized mouth guard and make sure they wear it. They are available at most Ladera Ranch athletic supply stores. Some dentists make custom-made athletic mouthguards that deliver even better protection than the one-size-fits-all brands.
