Protect Young Smiles For Active Kids

pediatric dental Kelowna

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, children’s dentistry is central to our practice. Do you have a youngster playing sports? We remind you that soccer, baseball, football, and basketball can be very dicey for your child’s teeth.

Football is a contact sport, yet has a relatively low rate of tooth injuries compared to other contact sports. Why? Football players are instructed to wear a mouth guard and a helmet. Mouth guards are inexpensive, but worth their weight in gold!

If your child participates in a contact sport and does not wear a mouth guard, we recommend that you get them one and make sure they wear it. They are available at most athletic supply stores. Some dentists make individually-constructed athletic mouthguards that deliver even better protection than the one-size-fits-all brands.

At Choose Your Smile in Kelowna, our children’s dentistry maintains your youngster’s dental health. We also offer smile design services. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
