Cool Fall weather is perfect for outdoor sports. Do you kids play on any school teams? Make sure that they are wearing mouth guards while they play! Mouth guards help prevent dental injuries and keep tiny teeth safe.
What is a mouth guard?
Mouth guards are coverings worn directly over your child's teeth (see image). They protect teeth while kids play sports and protect against sports-related injuries.
When should your child wear their mouth guard?
Kids should wear mouth guards whenever they are playing a contact sport or a sport that might pose injury to their mouth. These sports include, but are not limited to:
- Ice Hockey
- Field Hockey
- Mountain Biking
