We would be happy to create your child a mouthguard for sports or a mouthguard to help prevent teeth grinding!
When should my child wear a mouthguard?
At Pleasanton Children’s Dentistry, we understand that protecting your child’s smile is important. Whether you have been directed to our practice to get your child a mouthguard for sports or have noticed your child teeth grinding, our custom mouthguards are designed to protect your child’s smile. Besides sports or teeth grinding, a mouthguard can also be helpful if your child experiences sleep apnea or participates in other high-impact activities.
Will a mouthguard help with teeth grinding?
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, can develop or become triggered at any age. If you notice your child grinding their teeth, there may or may not be a reason. However, a custom mouthguard for the night can help prevent teeth grinding by assisting muscles to relax and to act as a barrier by creating even pressure across the jaw to protect teeth from damage.
How do I know my child needs a mouthguard?
If your child needs a mouthguard for sports, it will likely be communicated before or during sports organization sign-ups. If your child does not play a sport, but you notice your child teeth grinding or complaining about headaches, jaw pain, or tooth pain, they may benefit from a custom mouthguard. In any case, our Pleasanton Children’s Dentistry team would be happy to see your child for a mouthguard consultation!Contact Us
