Mouth Guards

Does your child play a sport?  Whether they play a sport for fun or for a school team, mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment.  Mouth guards are used to protect your teeth when playing football, hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, basketball, baseball, soccer, and other contact sports.  Athletes of all ages who participate in contact sports should wear a mouth guard.  This dental appliance helps to prevent:
  • Tooth damage
  •  Jaw damage
  • Concussions
  • Lacerations to the checks, tongue and lips
We offer custom mouth guards at Greenville Family Dentistry.  We encourage parents to bring their children in for a mouth guard fitting for the best level of protection for your smile.
