It is worthwhile getting a custom-fit mouthguard from the dentist to protect your child’s teeth for sports. This mouthguard will protect the child’s teeth more effectively.

Key takeaways:

– Custom-fit mouthguards are more comfortable than generic shop-bought ones, so it’s more likely that the child will wear it.

– Custom-fit mouthguards are made to absorb impact and protect your child’s teeth.

– Mouthguards bought from a store tend to be less durable and need to be replaced more often.

“Since custom-fit mouthguards are made just for your child, they fit perfectly and tend to be much more comfortable than generic mouthguards.”
