Mom and Dad's Little Superstar!

The need for a mouth guard for your little superstar is very important at any age to protect the teeth, oral health and risk of concussions.  One should also be concerned with the bacteria that accumulate on the mouth guard over time. They need to be disinfected and or replaced regularly to prevent potential cavities and gum disease.
