If your child plays a sport, our dentist and team recommend that they wear a sports mouth guard. This oral appliance helps protect their teeth, mouth and jaws so that they can play without worry of injury. We welcome you to call Dimond Family Dental Center at 907-344-5544 to make an appointment with Dr. Ken Wynne and learn more about sports mouth guards in Anchorage, Alaska.
Sports mouth guards are often a required piece of equipment for children participating in athletics, especially in high-contact sports such as wrestling, football, hockey, soccer, basketball, baseball or rugby. Sports guards are designed to fit over your child’s teeth to protect them from injury.
There are several types of athletic mouth guards available. Generic “stock” or “boil and bite” mouth guards can be purchased at most local sporting goods stores. However, custom mouth guards made by our dentist provide the best protection. They are more comfortable and are designed to fit perfectly in order to provide the maximum amount of protection. Custom mouth guards also make it easier for your child to breathe while playing and reduce their risk of injury to their jaw and neck.
