From Dr. Heinrich:
“With the close of summer upon us and a new school year about to begin, the excitement of watching our young athletes participate in sporting events nears. We would like to remind our patients that preventing dental injuries, especially in contact sports such as football is important and can be easily achieved by simply wearing a properly fitted mouth guard made in our office.
Be sure to take the time to properly form your mouth guards if not custom. Also, many companies are manufacturing mouth guards for those who wear braces. If stock mouth guards are not comfortable, a custom mouth guard can be made by technicians in our office in just a few days.
Our custom mouth guards can also be comfortably worn by athletes in other sports such as soccer and basketball. According to the American Dental Association athletes in these sports are twice as likely to sustain dental injury if not wearing a simple mouth guard. So be sure to have a comfortable mouth guard and wear it while competing.
I would like to wish a heartfelt GOOD LUCK and SAFE YEAR to ALL OUR ATHLETES!!!”
