Many people realize that it is a good idea to wear a mouthguard for contact sports like football, but not everyone is aware that even non-contact sports like gymnastics, skateboarding, horseback riding, biking, and so forth can result in accidents that damage your teeth and alter your life. That’s why, if your son or daughter is at risk, you should plan to visit our Newburgh, NY dentist’s office to get them the protection they need.

Dr. Petrosino ensures that our devices are far better than those over-the-counter “boil and bite” mouthguards you’ve probably come across at the store. Here’s the difference: the athletic mouthguards we craft here are custom-fitted to your child’s unique mouth to provide them with more comfort and proper coverage.

Check out this informative video clip below from the American Dental Association that looks at the importance of athletic mouthguards. Then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your next preventive dentistry appointment at Smile Design Dental.
