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 instructed 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 Chesterfield athletic supply stores. Some dentists make individually-constructed athletic mouthguards that provide even better protection than the one-size-fits-all models.
