Do you have a son or daughter that plays Carlsbad youth sports? Soccer, baseball, football, and basketball can be very dangerous to your child’s teeth. Football is a violent contact sport, yet there is a relatively low rate of tooth injuries that occur in football as compared to other contact sports. Why? Football players are required to wear a mouth guard and a helmet.
Inexpensive athletic dental mouth guards are worth their weight in gold!
If your child participates in a contact sport in Carlsbad, California and does not currently wear a tooth protection device, you may want to purchase an appropriately-sized mouth guard. They are available at most San Marcos CA and Escondido athletic supply stores. Some dentists make custom athletic mouthguards that offer even better protection than the one-size fits all varieties.
