Did you know that nearly 40 percent of all dental injuries are related to sports, (according to the Journal of the American Dental Association)? As such, you’ll want to do everythig in your power to protect a child’s teeth and gums from any damage that could come along during sports-related games and practices at school this year.
The best method of prevention and protection, in our humble opinion, is through getting your children all fitted for one of our unique athletic mouthguards that also allow your kids to breathe better and speak more clearly than the boil and bite, store-bought variety.
The video clip below has more info from the ADA about mouthguards. Check it out and then call Smiles of Chattanooga at 423-454-2181 or fill out our online form to request an easy preventive dentistry appointment.
