Protecting Your Elizabethtown Athlete’s Teeth

Categories: Dental Health

Protecting Your Elizabethtown Athlete's Teeth Do you have a son or daughter that plays Elizabethtown youth sports? Soccer, baseball, football, and basketball can be very dangerous to 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 in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania and does not currently wear a tooth protection device, you may want to purchase an appropriately-sized mouth guard. They are available at most Hershey and Manheim athletic supply stores. Some dentists make custom athletic mouthguards that offer even better protection than the one-size fits all varieties.
