With kids getting settled into their new school year, and winter quickly approaching, child sports programs have begun! Most of these sports programs require high energy activities and as a result, impact-related injuries are quite common. There is good news though! The use of a mouth guard can reduce injuries and trauma from high-impact accidents, and are designed to lessen the risk of area-related concussions.
Some drugstores carry boil and bite mouth guards which are made and shaped at home by biting into a softened wax-like material. While drugstore mouth guards are better than no protection at all, they are not an ideal solution. Some of the benefits of a custom-fitted mouth guard are:
Customized mouth guards can be made in roughly a day, and come in a variety of different colours. Different levels of protection are also available, with an additional plate embedded into the mouth guard for high impact sports (such as hockey, wrestling, etc).
Prices: Child $40.00 and Adults $60.00
