National Facial Protection Month, April 2014

In a recent news release, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry reminds young athletes to “play it safe by wearing a mouth guard during recreational and organized sports this spring.” The release notes that 2% of children in sports will eventually suffer a severe facial injury. Keep your children safe by ensuring they wear a properly fitted mouth guard, helmet, face shield or other protective gear while playing sports.
