Protect Your Athlete’s Teeth

Categories: Dental Health

Protecting Your Monkton Athlete's Teeth Do you have a son or daughter that plays Monkton youth sports? Soccer, baseball, football, and basketball can be very risky for your child’s teeth.

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 required to wear a mouth guard and a helmet.

Inexpensive athletic dental mouth guards are worth their weight in gold!

If your child participates in a contact sport and does not currently wear a tooth protection device, we recommend that you buy an appropriately-sized mouth guard and make sure they wear it. They are available at most Monkton athletic supply stores. Some dentists make customized athletic mouthguards that grant even better protection than the one-size fits all varieties.

Is your child still a toddler? It’s not too early to start protecting their oral health. If your toddler has not yet had a dental examination, call us at 410-357-0099 to schedule one. Starting early dental visits is important for lifelong oral health.
