If you or your child are active in sports, especially contact sports, a custom sports mouth guard may be your most important piece of equipment!
Dr. Alla Brown, a Buford family dentist, recommends and offers custom fit sports mouth guards to protect the teeth and soft tissues of the mouth from injury during play. Mouth guards are also important for patients wearing orthodontic or any other type of oral appliances as these can cause additional damage on impact or become dislodged and damaged too.
Teeth do not grow back!
Dr. Brown can fit you or your child in her Buford dental office, Lanier Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, with a custom mouth guard fabricated from dental materials for better shock absorption than over the counter models. Custom sports mouth guards also fit snugly over the teeth and do not require the wearer to clench their jaw in order to keep it in place: this can eventually cause additional dental problems and also creates added stress on the body during play.
Take advantage of the summer break to get your child fitted and ready to play safely this fall!
