Our first Defend Your Mouth Day was a success. We helped to educate children and families in our community about how to protect kids’ mouths from dental-related injuries by providing children with appointments complimentary, professionally fitted sports mouthguards.
What types of injuries can mouthguards prevent?
- Tooth damage such as chips, fractures, and extrusion
- Partial or total tooth loss
- Soft-tissue injuries to the lips, tongue, gums, and cheeks
While some sports may mandate the use of mouthguards, it is recommended that children wear mouthguards when participating in all sports and recreational activities.
We look forward to hosting more events to help make a difference in our community in the future.
