It’s just about the end of the winter sports season here in Columbia, SC. Now we’re getting ready for spring and summer sports, so for parents all over the city, that means buying gear and uniforms, paying fees, planning your practice and game schedule, and arranging transportation. It should also include a trip to Total Dental Care of South Carolina. If you’re wondering why, it’s because we want to make sure your young athlete’s mouth is protected with a custom mouthguard.
Dr. Forbes can take precise measurements to create a custom-fit athletic mouthguard for your child. Studies show that custom mouthguards are more likely to provide adequate protection than one-size-fits-all mouthguards. Plus, athletes who wear them are 60 times less likely to suffer a dental injury.
