Mouth guards are often used to protect your child’s teeth from injury due to teeth grinding and during sports.

Professional Grade Athletic Mouth Guards which we make in house. More than 5 million teeth are avulsed each year due to sports injuries and trauma, and in certain cases these avulsions can be attributed to the absence of a mouthguard or to improperly fabricated and fitted mouthguards. Not only do mouthguards protect the teeth, but they also protect the head against a blow to the jaw that can result in a concussion and loss of consciousness.
