Football is a violent contact sport, yet there is a relatively low rate of tooth injuries that occur in football as compared to other contact sports. Why? Football players are instructed to wear a mouth guard and a helmet.
Inexpensive athletic dental mouth guards are worth their weight in gold!
If your child participates in a contact sport and does not currently wear a tooth protection device, we recommend that you buy an appropriately-sized mouth guard and make sure they wear it. They are available at most Custer athletic supply stores. Some dentists make custom athletic mouthguards that furnish even better protection than the one-size fits all varieties.
Is your child still a toddler? It’s not too early to start protecting their oral health. If your toddler has not yet had a dental examination, call us at 605-673-2011 to schedule one. Starting early dental visits is important for lifelong oral health.
