When Are Mouth Guards Necessary?
If your kid plays a sport, then pediatric dentists Dr. Yvonne Felli and Dr. Ajikwaga Felli strongly recommend a custom mouth guard to protect their gums, teeth, and jawbone during play. Mouth guards can also be beneficial for children who unknowingly grind their teeth in their sleep. Compared to generic mouth guards bought at the store, a custom mouth guard from Cuddly Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics will be crafted and adjusted specifically for your child, which makes it more comfortable and effective. If you would like to decrease the danger of damage to your child's mouth, we encourage you to contact our Allen, TX office to find out more about custom mouth guards.

"We were recommended to Cuddly from our hospital lactation consultant when we had our baby. He was born with a tongue tie and lip tie that made sucking hard for him when it was feeding time. From the first time we called them, Cuddly's employees are so kind and super nice. They listened and helped walked me through the process of getting my son an appointment to get it fixed. They called my insurance for me to make sure that the procedures were accepted and explained to me the cost. When we went to see them, the were always transparent about what is needed to be done, how much insurance would pay and what is the cost left to us. The dentist is amazing, she is so sweet and was great with our son and every kid that we saw in there. The dentist assistants were just as sweet and super thorough. We are so happy that we have found Cuddly, ever since we got the procedure done, my son has been able to sleep, feed and breath better. I would 100% recommend everyone take their kids here. They are great at easing your worries and aid you in understanding all this confusing health care stuff."- L.H. / Google / Sep 01, 2023

What is the Process for Getting a Custom Mouth Guard?
To create your child's mouth guard, we will take a series of digital or physical impressions. These impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where a custom mouth guard will be carefully crafted from durable, high-quality materials. Once made and delivered back to our practice, we will have your child come back to our office for a fitting. We will make sure their guard fits correctly and is comfortable. When your child receives their mouth guard, it is crucial that they wear it during sports, sleeping, or any time their mouth needs protection. Caring for your child's mouth guard will be crucial in maintaining its lifespan. It's necessary to store it in a secure location and clean it before and after every use. We will go over the best method to clean your child's mouth guard based on the materials used. Your child should bring it with them to every dental appointment so we can inspect its condition and tell them when a replacement is needed.
