Mouthguards for Kids and Young Adults
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a mouthguard for all children and youth participating in organized sports activities. Sports with the highest incidences of tooth injury are basketball, baseball, hockey, rugby and soccer. Among non-organized sports, bicycles frequently contribute to dental injuries in children. Other recreational sports where mouthguards provide protection include skateboarding and skating.
Injuries to the mouth cause lasting damage. If you lose a tooth due to injury, call Houlik Family Dentistry immediately. Do not touch the root of the tooth and rinse it off with water. If reimplantation is possible, it needs to happen quickly under the care of an experienced dentist. Control bleeding in the mouth with light pressure and cold compresses.
