As children age and become more involved in sports, mouth guards become important to protect their permanent teeth from accidental injury. Burg Children’s Dentistry recommends the use of a mouth guard for all adolescents while playing sports or taking part in any activity that may cause injury to the mouth.
Mouth guards are athletic mouth protectors made of soft plastic. They come in various sizes and can be custom molded to fit the upper teeth.
Mouth guards effectively protect the teeth, lips, cheeks, tongue, and jaw bone from possible sports injuries. They can also aid in protecting an individual from head and neck injuries, such as concussions.
Mouth guards should be worn to protect the mouth during various sports based activities where there is a risk of mouth, head, or face injury. Such activities include: soccer, karate, boxing, basketball, football, hockey, baseball, skating, skateboarding, wrestling, tennis, biking, racquetball, motor sports, and other activities.
There are various options in mouth guards. Many different mouth guards can be found in athletic or big box retail stores such as Wal-Mart. Customized mouth guards are available through Burg Children’s Dentistry. Mouth guards vary in protection level, comfort, and cost. Generally, the level of protection that a mouth guard offers varies with the price of the device. Be sure to choose a mouth guard that feels comfortable. A properly fitting mouth guard should not feel bulky or interfere with speech to a great degree.
They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!- Heather H.
Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.- Jessica K.
What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.- Sarah P.
We love Burg Children’s Dentistry! The staff is so kind and patient and they are so gentle with the kids. My daughter is four and loves going to the dentist because they make it so fun and comfortable. I’m grateful we live close to such a great dental office!- Claire M.
I love this place, but what is more important is that my daughter loves this place. She looks forward to going to the dentist. I did not grow up with the same experience. I’m confident that she is being taken care of on every visit.- Sara R.
Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!- Jon & Melissa L.
The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.- Christina T.
The folks at Burg Children’s Dentistry are excellent! Our four year old daughter loves going there and they have set her up to enjoy going to the dentist for years to come! I have recommended them to friends already! Thanks for a great job guys!- Watt C.
