If your child plays a sport, Dr. Robert Lo Giudice and associates strongly recommend that he or she wear a sports mouth guard to protect their teeth and jaws. Many of the dental emergencies that children experience are due to injury and trauma, and wearing a sports mouth guard will help prevent problems such as knocked out teeth and damage to the tongue, cheeks, and gums.
