Why Choose Michel Dental for Preventive Dentistry?

How Mouthguards Protect Your Child’s Teeth


Mouthguards are typically made to cover the upper row of teeth, which minimizes the risk of broken teeth, injured lips, tongue, jaw, face, and it also helps cushion a blow. Possibly the most important part is that they minimize the amount of force placed on your child’s teeth, preventing damage or fracture from a blow to the head in sports or outdoor activity. Mouthguards are typically made to cover your top teeth because they stick out farther than your bottom row, which means that they tend to take the brunt of a hit if it occurs.

When Your Children Should Use Mouthguards

Unfortunately, dental injuries in kids are common when they play sports. Not even just in “contact” sports, baseball and basketball account for around 40% of sports-related dental injuries alone. That’s why it’s important for your child to wear a mouthguard during playtime or activity. That way, even if they’re climbing a tree or playing on the playground, they can protect their teeth. Some sports like football will typically have mandatory mouthguard rules but be sure to have your son or daughter use one for all of their sporting activities like skating or gymnastics.
