Preserve Your Kids’ Smiles With Mouthguards in Littleton

The American Dental Association says that athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury than those who do. If your child plays a sport, mouthguards in Littleton are the ideal way to make sure their smile stays intact. Compared to a store-bought mouthguard, a professionally made mouthguard from Sprout and Bloom will:

  • Provide superior protection against dental injury
  • Fit better and feel more comfortable in your child’s mouth
  • Hold up better and last longer

Make sure your child’s mouth is protected with sports dentistry. Call Sprout and Bloom today at 720-637-1760 to get a custom-fitted mouthguard.

A Mouthguard Safeguards Young Smiles

You may not think too much about custom mouthguards in your everyday life. However, if you’ve ever experienced an injury to your teeth or gums or had to repair damage caused by teeth grinding, you may be aware of the integral role that mouthguards can play in your child’s oral health.

At Sprout and Bloom, professional mouthguards are used in two ways for the benefit of our young patients:

  • Athletic Mouthguards – Don’t gamble with your child’s smile. If they’re involved with any sort of sport that involves sudden changes in direction, contact with other players, or a flying ball or puck, they need to wear a professional mouthguard. Many serious dental injuries can be avoided with a custom-fit mouthguard made by a professional lab. Store-bought or “boil and bite” mouthguards won’t deliver the same level of protection. Your child deserves the best protection they can get when playing a sport.
  • Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) Mouthguards – Many kids grind their teeth in their sleep without even knowing it. Unaware to them or you, your child may be damaging their tooth enamel through teeth grinding. We’ll always look for signs of worn or damaged teeth at your child’s checkups and make recommendations accordingly. A custom mouthguard will fit comfortably in their mouth to prevent grinding and help them avoid the need for restorative dentistry.

Give your child the protection they need to keep their smile beautiful and healthy. Call Sprout and Bloom to schedule an appointment for mouthguards in Littleton. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Mouthguards

Why are mouthguards important?

The most common reason to wear a mouthguard is to protect your child’s teeth and gums while playing sports. Whether they are participating in a contact sport or not, a well-made mouthguard is their best defense against blows to the mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. Mouthguards can also alleviate symptoms of teeth grinding and TMJ disorders that cause dental damage and pain.

Can mouthguards help with my child’s TMJ problems?

Yes, and in fact, custom mouthguards are one of the most common, conservative solutions for TMJ disorders and teeth grinding. Because these oral devices fit over your child’s teeth, they keep them from involuntarily clenching and grinding their teeth together while they sleep. This will alleviate the pressure on their jaw, reduce painful symptoms of TMJ disorder, allow the joint to heal naturally, and protect their tooth enamel from damage.

How are mouthguards made?

For any oral appliance to fit well and work effectively, it needs to be customized to the precise measurements of your child’s mouth. Athletes who buy mass-produced guards from a sporting goods store, for example, will never find one that is sized comfortably or appropriately enough to provide full coverage and protection. We can create a mouthguard that allows your child to move, breathe, and communicate easily while keeping their smile safe.

Which mouthguards work best?

A mouthguard that is custom designed just for your mouth will always outperform one that’s bought off the shelf. It will provide better protection for your teeth against injury, fit better and feel more comfortable, and last longer than an over-the-counter appliance. For this reason, we always recommend that our patients come to us to get a mouthguard.
