If your children are involved in any sport, you need to think about a custom mouth guard. Sure, if the sport is football, hockey, lacrosse, ultimate fighting, cliff jumping, skydiving, alligator wrestling, bull riding, shark wrangling or for some reason, rock eating, of course you’re going to want a mouthguard. In fact, their league might require it. Presuming of course that there is a rock eating league out there somewhere. And let’s hope there isn’t.
But the truth is that any time your family is involved in a sport or activity where there is the slightest chance that you could injure your mouth and teeth, you should think about giving our orthodontists, Dr. Chris Trockel and Dr. Martin Trockel at True Smile Orthodontics a call at 918-364-2222 to talk about custom mouth guards in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Yes, you could buy an “off-the-rack” mouth guard at a big box store or sporting goods store, and maybe you would save a little cash. But we will create a customized mouth guard designed specifically to fit you. Not only will it be safer, but it will be more comfortable. So, if you are going out for the soccer team, or something a little more esoteric like javelin-catching (good luck with that, BTW), come see us first. Your mouth will thank you.
