Pediatric Dentist and Orthodontist in Staten Island, NY - Small World Dental


Protect your child's smile by preventing oral trauma.

A mouthguard is a dental device worn to protect your child’s teeth from damaging habitual or spontaneous behavior. Sometimes known as sportsguards, mouthguards are typically inserted and used before your child’s bedtime or before any planned sporting events where regular impact is expected. 

Serious, major trauma can be prevented by wearing mouth guards and our pediatric dentist in Staten Island highly recommends that child athletes wear them. 

Did you know? 

Estimates show that nearly 200,000 injuries to the mouth occur every year from sporting activities. Many of which are fully preventable through the regular use of a mouthguard fitted by our pediatric dentist in Staten Island. 

What are the benefits of mouthguards?

Protect your child’s beautiful smile with a mouthguard. They can help your child in two very different ways: 

  • By preventing trauma while playing sports

  • And by preventing oral habits from developing into expensive dental problems 

Contact our Staten Island pediatric dentistry office to schedule an appointment and see if a mouthguard is right for your child.
