Did your children grow since last the sport season? Did they lose primary teeth and sprout adult teeth?
There is a pretty good chance that last year’s athletic mouth guard doesn’t fit this season.
Protecting your kids’ teeth during sports can spare them from dibilitating injuries. Don’t underestimate the long term consequences of childhood accidental tooth loss or injury.
Last year, Dr. Ozanic attended the Toronto Bike Show where he witnessed a teen-aged boy lose his front teeth in a failed jump during a BMX competition. This was a devestating injury for a young man, affecting his comfort, bite function and appearance for life.
Many of you have friends or family who injured their teeth as children or young adults, and have endured multiple dental procedures to restore their smiles.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends athletic mouth guards as an effective way to prevent injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. For optimal protection, we recommend a custom-fitted athletic guard.
We recommend athletic mouth guards if you or your child participate in:
- Martial Arts/ MMA/ Boxing
- Extreme sports such as BMX, skate boarding, snow boarding
We want to keep kids smiles healthy for life. We offer FREE in-house athletic guards to all students through high school, who are patients of record and maintain regular dental check-ups.
Getting a custom fitted athletic guard is as simple as having a dental impression taken at a recare appointment. Then pick up your kids’ FREE athletic guard a few days later! Its that easy.
Also available at an additional cost, special order, custom athletic guards with cool designs or professional team logos. (Fees vary depending on the design)?
