Athletic Mouthguards near Flushing, NY
Preserve Your Child’s Healthy Smile
Mouthguards, also known as sports guards or mouth protectors, are recommended for anyone who participates in a sport or physical activity. In fact, the American Dental Association estimates that up to one-third of dental injuries are from sports-related incidents. At Avenue Orthodontics, Dr. Eleni, Dr. Abraham, and Dr. Grauer offer fully customizable athletic mouthguards near Flushing, NY – just ask about it when you give us a call.
If your child participates in basketball, football, martial arts, bicycling, lacrosse or gymnastics, athletic mouthguards can protect their teeth, jaw, and gums from injury and their orthodontic appliance from damage. Mouthguards prevent the teeth from being chipped, fractured, or knocked out and protect the lips and cheeks from wounds due to chipped or broken teeth.
If your child plays a brass musical instrument, they may need to make a few adjustments, but their braces should not cause any problems.
Custom-Fitted for Your Child’s Mouth
Has your child completed dental or orthodontic treatment? If so, then it’s even more critical that they wear an athletic mouthguard during sports. Our orthodontists help create these oral appliances so they fit well in your child’s mouth and protect teeth from a sports injury. While it’s true you can purchase pre-made mouthguards from your local sporting goods store, your child’s oral health and safety are important to us. We only carry high-quality brands that are tear-resistant, comfortable and well-suited for your child’s mouth, easy to clean, and allow proper breathing.
Easy Tips for Keeping Mouthguards Clean
- After use, wash with mild soap or denture cleaning tablets and cold/cool water
- Store in a container that has ventilation holes to allow the appliance to completely dry
- Do not bend
- Remember to bring it with you to your child’s routine checkups
