Kids are active, and we think that’s great! But there are some sports, such as football, soccer, basketball, and hockey, that can wreak havoc on your child’s teeth. If your child plays a high-contact sport, we recommend that they get fitted for a custom mouthguard at Albany Smiles.
Over-the-counter mouthguards can actually cause problems with your child’s alignment over time and do little to protect their teeth. Custom mouthguards fit perfectly and protect the teeth, lips, and gums from injury.
But mouthguards aren’t only for kids! If you play recreational, professional, or competitive sports, you should also be wearing a mouthguard.
Easy impressions with our iTero Scanner
Let’s face it, making a gooey impression is no fun. You and your child will be delighted to know that at Albany Smiles, we use iTero scan technology to capture topographical images of your child’s teeth to make their mouthguard. It’s quick and easy, and incredibly accurate.
If your child is active in contact sports, talk to us about how we can help to make them safer with a custom mouthguard.
