Do you know an athlete that plays youth sports? There are many activities adults and our children participate in that could put their teeth and gums in harms way: Football, rugby, baseball, basketball, gymnastics, wrestling, soccer, handball, kick boxing. Each of these activities can be dangerous to the teeth. The ADA (The American Dental Association) recommends wearing a properly fitted athletic mouth guard.
Dr. Marinic usually recommends that his patients first try the Inexpensive athletic mouth guards which are worth the price when it comes to protecting those beautiful teeth. There are several sport stores in Evanston area where you can purchase an appropriately sized mouth guard. Dr. Marinic can also make you or your child a custom mouth guard at his office. To further discuss you or your child’s options, call Dr. Marinic’s dental office at 847-475-8700.
