Mouth guards and spring sports, from Nettune and Banasiak Orthodontic Associates

Can you believe April is almost upon us? Drs. Nettune and Banasiak, however, know that the spring months bring an increase in outdoor activities and a greater chance of damaging your precious pearly whites while participating in sports activities. If you play sports, it’s important that you consult Drs. Nettune and Banasiak for special precautions.

A protective mouth guard is advised for playing spring sports such as baseball, lacrosse and soccer. Be sure to avoid mouth guards that custom form to your teeth as these will resist any tooth movements Drs. Nettune and Banasiak are trying to achieve. In case of any accident involving the face, check your mouth and the appliances immediately. If teeth are loosened or the appliances damaged, please schedule an appointment with Nettune and Banasiak Orthodontic Associates.

Only by using a mouth guard and other forms of facial protection can kids with and without braces avoid serious sports injuries. Please give us a call if you have any questions about mouth guards or your treatment with Drs. Nettune and Banasiak.

Happy Monday!
