3 Ways Mouthguards Prevent Kids’ Sports Injuries

kids' mouth guards in Anchorage and Wasilla, AK

At Alaska Premier Dental Group we treat far too many sports injuries. These run the gamut, and include knocked out and broken teeth, and mouth lacerations.

Many of these injuries could be minimized or even prevented with the proper protective gear.

All athletes who participate in contact sports are at risk of injuries to their mouth and teeth. It doesn’t matter if you are a professional athlete or a 6-year-old playing youth soccer. Even so-called non-contact sports like basketball carry the risk of accidental mouth injuries.

An athletic mouth guard can:

  • Absorb force from impact
  • Prevent broken teeth
  • Prevent lip and tongue injuries

A custom mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be used from an early age.

At Alaska Premier Dental Group we want everyone participating in sports to protect their teeth with an athletic mouth guard. That includes weekend warrior grownups! People from Anchorage, Wasilla, and Eagle River also come to us for complete family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!
