Why your child's teeth are in danger when playing sports

The sports injuries you'll find on most new highlights - and the ones parents tend to be most worried about - typically involved the head, legs, or chest.

But did you know that the teeth and mouth are just as common, and can be just as dangerous, particularly among the youth.
39% of all dental injuries are sports related. Children and teens who participate in contact sports are at risk for:
  •  Injuries to the teeth
  •  Trauma to the lips, cheeks, or tongue
  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
No two sports injuries are the same and how severe they are depend on the amount of contact and the type of sport. While it's impossible to control what happens on the court or on the field once the game begins, permanent tooth damage is something a parent should always try to prevent before the game. If a tooth gets damaged enough, your child have to undergo:
39% of all dental injuries are sports related. Children and teens who participate in contact sports are at risk for:
  •  Injuries to the teeth
  •  Trauma to the lips, cheeks, or tongue
  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
Many of these sports-related injuries can be prevented with a proper fitting, custom mouth guard. Most youth sports leagues require mouth guards for young athletes to make sure kids stay safe.

Most off-the-shelf mouth guards are uncomfortable, ill-fitting, and don't provide the same level of protection
  •  Initial repair of any dental injury (which can be painful and costly)
  •  Subsequent procedures throughout your child's life to restore the damaged teeth
  • Days, weeks, or even months missed from work (for you) and school (for your child)
  •  $100 - $10,000 in dental treatment fees over the lifespand of your child-athlete
Many of these sports injuries can be avoided with the right mouth guard. A 2018 study from the American Dental Association has show that mouth guard users to be 82%-93% less likely to suffer dentofacial injuries than non-users. 

Like a child needs a helmet for football, or shin guards for soccer, young athletes in any contact sport should have a mouth guard to stay as safe as possible.  

what is the best type of mouth guard for your child?
Most youth sports programs require mouth guards for young athletes to make sure kids stay safe. 

However, not all mouth guards are created equal. While many parents might think any guard is “better than nothing,” most guards you can find in a store are as ineffective as no mouth guard at all. 

In fact, only one kind of mouth guard (scan-and-customize) offers your child the highest durability and longest-lasting protection. 

Here’s why:
Off-The-Shelf Mouth Guard
You’ll find them at every sporting goods store and drug store, but these also tend to be the least effective form of protection. Why?
  • The fit is molded and set before it even hits the shelves, so it will never be a 100% match to your child’s mouth.
  •  Anything less than a perfect fit will cause discomfort, which means there's a better chance your child won't actually wear it.
  •  Your child must clench down on off-the-shelf guards for them to stay in, restricting your child’s ability to breathe or talk during gameplay. It also leaves their jaw sore from prolonged tightening.
Boil-And-Bite Mouth Guard
Also readily available, this form of mouth guard sets in hot water before going in your child’s mouth to set the mold shape. While slightly more effective than the off-the-shelf guards, this mold is ultimately not a sustainable or reliable choice.
  • Your child must “bite” down hard on the guard to shape it, causing it to thin out and offer little shock protection.
  •  Repetitive pressure on these guards cause them to wear out within three months of regular use.
  •  If you or your child forget to replace in time, it will quickly become as ineffective as having no guard at all.
Scan-And-Customize Mouth Guard
While only available from trained professionals like orthodontists, state-of-the-art dentofacial scanners create the safest and best-fitting mouth guards for athletes of any age. High school, college and professional athletes all use this kind.
  • By taking a 3d scan of your child's upper teeth, this mouth guard will fit your child's mouth exactly. No pain or discomfort.
  •  Every mouth guard is made of high-quality, resistant material that is meant to hold up season after season
  •  Due to their durability and quality, a Scan-And-Customize guard is the most expensive form of mouth guard and requires a dental visit.

how do i know if my child needs a scan-and-customize athletic mouth guard?
If your child plays a contact sport of any kind (or a sport with even the potential of contact), customized athletic mouth guards will be the greatest protector against dangerous injuries and costly treatments down the line.
Soccer Players
Mouth guards for soccer can reduce mouth injuries and protects against concussions.
Basketball Players
Protect teeth from accidental collisions with elbows and falls to the floor.
Football Players
Reduce the risk of concussions and other traumatic brain injury.
Martial Arts and Boxing
No child should participate in any form of combat sport without a custom mouth guard.
Hockey Players
Protect teeth from pucks, hockey stick, and collisions with walls and other players.
However, the list of sports does not end here. 

Mouth guards are also recommended for other organized or recreational activities such as: bicycling, skateboarding, wrestling, volleyball, rollerblading, lacrosse, horseback riding and more. 

A good rule of thumb is that if the activity requires moving at fast speeds for extended periods of time and has the potential for falling or colliding, your child should have an athletic mouth guard
is there a catch?
