Fall is the season for cooler weather (thank goodness!), pumpkin spice lattes, and the start of football. We’re big football fans of our Houston area school teams. If your kids play football or any other fall sport, you might get a little rowdy cheering them on. As much as you want your kids to win, make sure they stay in the game with a custom athletic mouthguard from Houston Uptown Dentists.
Although any mouthguard is better than no mouthguard, the ADA says mouthguards from the dentist are better than generic ones because they fit better. A better fit means they:
- Protect better
- Are more comfortable
- Are more durable
- Are made of better materials and will last longer
- Allow your kids to talk better
- Improve focus, since your kids aren’t thinking about their mouthguard
Mouthguards drastically reduce the risk of dental injuries among athletes – by over 70 percent for minor injuries and over 80 percent for major ones.
We can customize your children’s mouthguards for their specific sport or even for kids who wear braces.
Avoid dental emergencies and keep your kids smiling on the field! Call Houston Uptown Dentists at 832-463-1021 to bring your kids in for a fitting, or schedule an appointment online. Then watch this retro PSA on mouthguards from the American Dental Association!
