sports injuries cheyenne wyWhat sport do you think causes the most dental sports injuries with kids? If you guessed football… you are right.

The ADA estimated that faceguards and mouth guards prevent approximately 200,000 sports injuries each year in high school and college football alone. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry states the children between the ages of 7-11 are the most susceptible to sports injuries. When all is said and done, it is up to parents to ensure their kids are protected during practices and games at a younger age and train their kids of the importance of wearing mouth guards when they are older and on their own.

Once adult teeth erupt, there are no second chances. Wearing a mouth guard can make the difference between losing or fracturing a tooth which requires a lifetime of #dental repair or owning your own pearly white smile.Read more on 8 Facts About Kids Dental Sports Injuries…
