April is Facial Protection Month! Play It Safe!!

April 3rd, 2017

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends to:
Play it safe!
Wear a mouth guard at every practice and every game!!Mouth guards and other types of protective gear can prevent or reduce injuries that happen during organized and recreational sports.

Mouth guards offer protection by absorbing high-impact energy from potentially traumatic blows.

Mouth Guard Care

  • Keep your mouth guard clean - rinse before and after each use
  • Store in a perforated container to let your mouth guard dry out
  • Avoid chewing on the mouth guard
  • Don't wear removable retainers with your mouth guard
  • Replace your mouth guard when it shows signs of wear

Wish you could wrap your kids in bubble wrap to protect them?

Good news - mouth guards are better than bubble wrap for facial protection and are much more practical! Check out this video.

What's the best type of mouth guard? The one that's worn.

For athletes currently in orthdontic treatment, contact Dr. Kennell if you have any questions about the type of mouth guard to wear during treatment.

PLAY IT SAFE! Dr. Kennell can help!
