The Importance of Mouthguards in Youth Sport

The Importance of Mouthguards in Youth Sport
It is already that time of the year when our children are getting ready to head back to school.

For many of us, this means our kids are also heading back to youth sports. Your child’s teeth are important and just as you would insist they wear a helmet you should insist they wear a mouthguard.
Depending on the sport/s your child plays, they may be at an increased risk of injuring their mouth during practice or game time.

Injuries to teeth can be classified into three categories:
  • Fracture - Cracked tooth
  • Avulsion - A tooth that has been knocked out/lost
  • Luxation - Dislodgement of the tooth
In many sports, your child is at risk of being accidentally hit in the face by an object or another player. This can lead to an injury to their teeth or oral soft tissues.
Remember, that baby teeth matter.

You still need to get your child fitted with a mouthguard even if they still have their primary teeth.
