Safety First in Sports and Outdoor Activities
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 because they prevent athletes from the embarrassment of missing teeth in Seattle.
Preventing Missing Teeth in Seattle with Mouth Guards
If your child participates in a contact sport and does not currently wear a protective mouthpiece, we recommend that you pick up an appropriately-sized mouth guard and make sure they wear it. They are available at most Seattle athletic supply stores. Some dentists make tailor-made athletic mouth guards that furnish even better protection than the one-size-fits-all models.
Start Early For a Healthy Smile For Life
Is your son or daughter still a toddler? It’s not too early to start protecting their oral health through improved oral hygiene. If your toddler has not yet had a dental examination, call us at 206-720-0600 to schedule one. Starting early dental visits is essential for lifelong oral health and prevents the need for cosmetic dentistry down the line.
