Pediatric Dentistry in Duncanville, TX
As a parent, you understand the importance of proper protective gear for sports. But did you know that up to 40% of athletic injuries involve the face? Dr. Barefield offers custom-fitted athletic mouthguards to protect children’s smiles from injury and keep teeth where they belong!
Made of flexible, easy-to-clean acrylic, an athletic mouthguard covers teeth and protects gums, lips, and jaws from injury. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends mouthguards for a variety of sports, including football, basketball, cycling, tennis, and gymnastics.
Our mouthguards are custom-made. Why is this important? A precision fit ensures comfort and doesn’t hinder speech, which means kids are more likely to wear their mouthguards instead of tossing them in a gym bag or locker! Your child’s smile is important, and an athletic mouthguard is an inexpensive way to protect oral health and keep teeth intact. Be sure to clean the mouthguard with soap and water after each use, and let it dry fully before storing it.
We deliver dentistry from a child’s perspective. Call our Duncanville pediatric dental office today to schedule your child’s athletic mouthguard appointment with Dr. Donna Barefield or one of our caring associates. We give kids a head start on a lifetime of terrific smiles!
