Avoiding injuries is the only way to stay in the game! Does your child wear a mouth guard while playing his/her sport?
If you/your child participate in any of the following activities, the American Dental Association and the Academy for Sports Dentistry recommend that you wear a properly fitted mouth guard.
- Extreme Sports
- Field Hockey
- Ice Hockey
- Inline Skating
- Martial Arts
- Shot Putting
- Water Polo
A mouth guard should be such that you will wear it: One that does not flex too much or tear One that can be cleaned easily One that does not limit your breathing or speech One that is custom made by your dentist
Don’t chew gum or anything else while playing active sports. A fall or push could cause you to choke.
