Play it safe this spring!
Spring is almost here and we want to remind our patients at Prose Orthodontics to protect their faces and teeth while out on the playing fields. Children, high-school athletes, and adults have more than 5 million teeth are knocked out in sporting events each year, according to the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation.
If you are planning on, or playing in, a spring sport it is important to have a proper-fitting mouthguard. Mouthguards can prevent chipped or broken teeth, lip and cheek injuries, jaw fractures, and even concussions.
If you are currently wearing braces we have mouthguards in the office that will fit over your braces and protect your teeth and brackets. If you don't have braces you will want to protect your Prose smile with a custom mouthguard. Please call 630.584.6555 with any questions.
