Does your child play sports?  If so, you are probably aware that there is a risk for mouth injuries in sports.  We hear so much about oral injuries as it relates to football, sometimes so much that it prevents us from seeing how prevalent it is in other sports. Many studies have shown the high levels of occurrence of oral injuries in basketball, skating, hockey, and gymnastics.

If you have a child involved in sports at any age, this is an important consideration for you to take regarding your child’s health, appearance, and your financial security.  Properly diagnosed, prescribed, and fashioned athletic mouthguards are essential to the prevention of oral and facial damage and brain trauma in a sports environment.  An estimated 5 million kids will lose a tooth to athletic injury this year.  The National Youth Sports Foundation for the Prevention of Athletic Injuries estimates a $10,000-15000 lifetime average expenditure for these types of injuries.  The ADA estimates that athletic mouthguards prevent more than 200,000 injuries per year in high school and college sports alone.
