Mouth Guards Q & A

What are mouth guards?

Mouth guards are removable oral appliances that protect your child’s teeth and gums from damage. In some cases, they’re also used to reduce the risk of oral health problems, like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or bruxism (teeth grinding).

If your child plays sports or clenches their jaw, a mouth guard can encourage optimal oral health, ensuring that their smile stays beautiful for years.
