Troy Family Dentist Saves Smiles with Protective Mouth Guards

by | Date Published:

April is National Face Protection Month! Do you find it odd that there’s a whole month dedicated to mouth guards and facial protection? The truth is that too many adults and children still don’t wear the necessary protective gear during sports-related activities.

The National Youth Sports Foundation for Safety reports that dental injuries are the most common type of oral facial injury sustained when kids play sports. The Troy family dentist is on a mission to change those statistics!

Statistics Related to Dental Injuries

  • More than 5 million teeth are completely knocked out (avulsed) each year in the US, costing more than $500 million to treat.
  • Dentists estimate that between 13% and 39% of dental injuries occur while playing sports.
  • About 80% of all dental injuries affect at least one of the front teeth. Damage to the tongue or cheek is common too.
  • Kids ages 5 to 14 account for nearly 40% of all sports-related injuries

Protection is Critical!

When you consider these statistics, it’s easy to see how critical it is for you to protect your child’s teeth (and your own as well!) with a customized mouth guard created by our dentist right here at our Troy, OH dental office.

Why is a customized mouth guard important? Of course, you can buy a generic boil-and- bite mouth guard that will provide some level of protection and is better than nothing.

But we highly recommend that you consider having a customized mouth guard created for your child. Our sports guards are made using exact impressions of your child’s teeth. This creates a protective mouthpiece that, unlike generic guards, conforms perfectly to all surfaces of your child’s teeth.

In addition, our customized athletic guards are made of a strong and durable material that provides far greater protection than anything you can buy at your sporting goods store.

Call Today to Protect Your Child’s Smile!

Basketball, football, hockey, martial arts, and boxing carry the highest risk for dental injury, but non-contact sports like bike riding carry risks as well. We urge you to give us a call and ask us about our customized athletic guards. Don’t let your child get sidelined by a dental injury that can impact their future oral health! Please give us a call!
