Sports dentistry is the prevention and treatment of dental injuries that occur during athletics. 

It’s important to protect your child’s smile if he or she plays sports, for aesthetics as well as health reasons.

Preventing Injury

One of the best ways to prevent injury to your child’s teeth and mouth is to have them wear a mouthguard while playing sports. There are several types of mouthguards to choose from, and DrJ can help you choose the best one for your child’s particular needs. We prefer custombite brand athletic mouthguards and can be found online using custombite mouthguard as the search term. Call us if you need help with this subject.
