You may remember us blogging about the advantages of wearing a mouth guard last week. Today, we thought we’d follow-up with a helpful video about facial protection. April is almost upon us, and for Drs. Nettune and Banasiak, that only means one thing: Facial protection. You see, April happens to be National Facial Protection Month, and it’s a good time to remind our young athletes about staying safe on the field this spring.
Nearly 60,000 people injure their faces annually while participating in sports activities, and teenagers account for 80 percent of all sports-related trips to the emergency room. That’s why Drs. Nettune and Banasiak are doing their part to help curb those numbers.
We hope the above video helps. Protective gear is vital for anyone engaging in tooth or mouth-threatening activities. If you have any further questions about any of the tips offered in the video, please contact Nettune and Banasiak Orthodontic Associates. And remember to have fun and stay safe this spring!
