Protecting Your Alexandria Athlete’s Teeth

Categories: Dental Health

Protecting Your Alexandria Athlete's Teeth Do you have a son or daughter that plays Alexandria youth sports? Soccer, baseball, football, basketball and gymnastics 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 Alexandria and does not currently wear a tooth protection device, you may want to purchase an appropriately-sized mouth guard. They are available at most local athletic supply stores.
