It's spring: college basketball, professional baseball and school competitive sports - which means we see a lot of sports-related mouth and tooth injuries. When kids - even young ones - play contact games like baseball, football or soccer, they need to protect their teeth. Smaller kids benefit from inexpensive "boil and bite" mouth guards (available in any sports store). Older (high school) kids should have a mouth guard custom made (in a variety of colors) in a dental office. They are not expensive and are invaluable tools because they protect and save teeth from traumatic injury. Give us a call if you have any questions!
