National Facial Protection Month

April is National Facial Protection Month

Help prevent serious, painful facial injuries while practicing your favorite sport

Safety tips that can help you, have a better experience while practicing your favorite sport.

1. Mouth Guards are a Must. 

Mouth guards are significantly less expensive than the cost to repair an injury, and dentists and dental specialists can make customized mouth guards that hold teeth in place and allow for normal speech and breathing.

2. Helmets are always Helpful.  

Helmets absorb the energy of an impact and help prevent damage to the head.

3. Have 20/20 Vision with Protective Eyewear.  

Eyes are extremely vulnerable to damage, especially when playing sports.

4. Face Shields Save Skin…and more.

  Hockey pucks, footballs and racquetballs can cause severe facial damage at any age.

5. Cheer and Shout Out Your Support for Mandatory Protective Gear. 

 Athletes who participate in football, hockey and boxing are required to wear mouth guards. If mouth guards have been proven to significantly decrease the risk of oral injuries, why is it not mandatory in every sport for kids to wear them?

If you practice any recreational sport  and you don’t have a Mouth Guard.  Contact us HERE  and spread the word.

As a healthcare provider, my goal has been to build a long-term relationship between my Dental Practice and our Patients. Dentistry allowed me, as a healthcare provider, to grow with my patients through the years, and share their fears, joys, with successful outcomes. We are fortunate to have a diverse patient base with unique personalities which we enjoy.
