April is National Facial Protection Month, a great reminder for making sure your active family members are wearing athletic mouthguards. That’s particularly true as the summer months approach, when kids are most active and practicing for school sports.
Any mouthguard will offer some level of protection. But custom mouthguards like the ones we make at Jahyun Koo, DDS will provide superior protection over online or store-bought mouthguards. It’s like a helmet – if a helmet is too loose and doesn’t fit snugly, it’s not going to be that effective if your kiddo falls off their bike. Likewise, a sports guard that fits well, and especially one made from high-quality materials like ours – will protect best. A good fit also means it’s more comfortable, and therefore your kids (or you) will be more likely to wear it.
