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.

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.
