Youth sports are an amazing way for kids to gain self-confidence, stay fit and get involved in their communities. Even with all of these positive aspects, there are risks. Safety is a must, and protecting your young one’s teeth and mouth tissue can be done with a custom-fit mouthguard from Charter Oak Dental. We can fit your children for comfortable, lightweight mouthguards to protect them while playing sports, cycling or skating as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Mouth guards are also recommended for adults who need protection for the mouth while playing sports or performing other activities that might put their teeth or mouth at risk of injury.
Night guards are often needed to protect the teeth of both adults and children who clench and grind while sleeping. A custom-made night guard from Charter Oak Dental will act as a protective layer between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep. Night guards cannot prevent you from grinding or clenching, but they can protect your mouth from the damage that these actions can cause, such as chips and cracks.
Charter Oak Dental is here to assist you with all of your dental health needs. Whether you are a parent of a child playing sports or an adult who suffers from the problems associated with teeth grinding, Charter Oak can help with quality night guards and sports-related mouth guards.
