MouthGuards & SportsGuards

Young girl smiling with mouthguard in Alameda, CAA mouthguard serves many purposes that can not only save your child's teeth, but potentially saves you money by reducing the chance of sport-induced injuries. Wearing a mouthguard is something that many kids resist and parents get tired of fighting, but it is a battle that is well worth not giving up. If you are struggling to get your child to wear one during sports, try providing these simple reasons.


A mouthguard does more than protect your child's teeth. While teeth are important, your child's mouth and jaws also need to be protected. In the case of serious impact, your child's teeth could cause serious injuries of the jaw or soft tissue that could take weeks to heal, and even cause him to stop playing sports for a while.

Prevent Dental Emergencies

If your child had the chance to avoid going to the dentist, they would probably jump at it. This is the goal of the mouthguard, to prevent dental emergencies from occurring. If your child is resisting wearing a mouthguard, explain to them that it could prevent an emergency visit to the dentist as well as invasive procedures from needing to be done. Sometimes this is enough to convince anyone to wear their mouthguard.

A Requirement

In some cases, whether it is a specific sport or a specific league, a mouthguard is a requirement to protect the safety of the players as well as to keep the insurance premiums of the sport at a minimum, which is an easy reason to convince your child to wear one.
