Did you know that, according to the American Dental Association, an athlete is 60 times more likely to suffer a tooth injury when they are not wearing a protective mouthguard?
At Wood Creek Dental in Upstate South Carolina, we want to help our patients protect the health and integrity of their smiles while playing sports. We offer custom-fitted mouthguards to protect your child’s smile.
“Thanks to all at Wood Creek Dental and a great big thanks to Dr. Hunt... while our son was playing third base, he took one in the mouth on a throw down. When Dr. Hunt took off the “cast” all was well teethwise… from now on while playing third base or defense, he will have a mouthguard in!”— Gary W.
Mouthguards for All Sports
Mouthguards are common in contact sports, such as football, basketball or hockey. However, at Wood Creek Dental, our dentists often see more dental trauma cases from sports like baseball, snow-skiing and cheerleading! Whatever sport you and your children enjoy, choosing to play with the protection of a mouthguard can reduce the risk of injury and expensive dental restorations.
A mouthguard is designed to help buffer the mouth and teeth from impact, and it can be custom-designed to offer superior protection.
Since studies have linked almost a third of dental injuries to sports-related activities, a mouthguard is an important piece of sports gear for you child. We can help you carefully select the right mouthguard to protect your child’s teeth.
