Mouth Guards in Manteca CA
If your child is involved in athletics, particularly contact sports, you may have given some thought to the idea of protecting your little one’s teeth. At Aura Family Dentistry, we take this concern seriously, too. Bring your child in for a visit with Dr. Damle and our friendly staff so we can set your mind at ease.

What Are Mouth Guards?
You have probably seen boxers and other athletes wearing athletic mouth guards. Athletes of all ages wear these protective oral appliances – not just children. The mouth guard is crafted out of thin, hardened plastic, which your child’s top and bottom teeth fit into perfectly. Your son or daughter will still be able to breathe comfortably and speak clearly, with the benefit of teeth protection during physical contact.

Does My Child Need One?
If your son or daughter is involved in sports, particularly contact sports, preventing dental accidents is your best bet in saving money and protecting your child’s oral health. An accidental impact to the mouth can result in damage, like knocked-out teeth, and cuts to soft tissues, such as the lips, tongue, and cheeks. Remember that physical contact can occur between two or more children running into one another, or with an object, such as a ball or hockey stick. Because accidents happen, consider a pediatric mouth guard if your child participates in any sport that may include contact, such as the following:

  • Football
  • Soccer
  • Lacrosse
  • Basketball
  • Baseball or Softball
  • Wrestling
  •  Hockey

 

What Should We Expect?
When you come in for your visit, we will discuss whether your child will benefit from a mouth guard. Once we determine this appliance is well-suited to your son or daughter, we will take impressions of your child’s top and bottom teeth. We will send the impressions to a dental lab, where a technician will create the custom mouth guard. When the guard is complete, you will come info for one follow-up visit, so we can fit the mouth guard. We will also discuss how to wear, store, and best care for the mouth guard with you and your child
