Risk of Injury to Young Athletes
Whether your young athlete is playing baseball, soccer, football, or lacrosse, it’s important that a mouthguard be part of their regular uniform. This is true for virtually any sport, including snowboarding, gymnastics, and skiing. That’s because no matter what sport your child plays, there is a danger for injuries to the mouth and face. Many sports teams, especially at the youth level, require mouthguards, but not all do. It’s up to you to make sure your young athlete is protected in every way possible, including their mouth, lips, cheeks, and tongue. Game On youth mouthguards are the best on the market and come with a plethora of benefits and attractive features.
Why should my youth athlete wear a mouthguard?
There are opportunities for head and mouth injuries no matter what sport your child chooses to play. They may try to head-butt a soccer ball at high speed and cause their teeth to slam shut on their tongue. They could take a wrong turn on their snowboarding course and run into a tree branch. A teammate may pass a basketball to them and accidentally hit them in the face. And of course, there are many ways to get a head or mouth injury in football.
Some of these sports require the use of a mouthguard, but some do not. Either way, you can make sure your athlete’s teeth and inner mouth have extra protection by having them wear a Game On youth mouthguard. You can help them prevent getting chipped teeth or having teeth knocked out plus avoid painful lacerations to their cheeks, gums, and tongue.
Without this kind of protection, your child could end up needing dental or orthodontic remedies, including surgery. Even if they just end up in a great deal of pain, it’s not a pleasant situation.
As a parent, you obviously want the best protection for your youth athlete. Our Game On youth mouthguard can protect your young athlete’s teeth and inner mouth against these kinds of damages.
What is the best youth mouthguard?
According to experts in the field, custom-fit youth mouthguards provide the greatest amount of safety and are best at preventing painful dental injuries. Many of the mouthguards on the market are too bulky to be comfortable because they don’t fit specifically to your child’s mouth. Game On youth mouthguards can be easily fit to your athlete’s teeth for superior protection.
Molding the Game On youth mouthguard to your child’s teeth couldn’t be easier. You only need a paper towel, microwave, and a bowl of cold water. Because young peoples’ mouths vary widely, you can easily fit the mouthguard for their mouth. If it doesn’t cover the furthest back teeth, you can stretch it so it fits perfectly. Likewise, if it’s too long, you can simply trim off the extra material.
