5,000,000 TEETH ARE LOST during sporting events every year. Yes, that’s 6 zeros, meaning five million! If people don’t start protecting their teeth, the Tooth Fairy may be able to retire—and we don’t want that! Irrespective of your age, we want to help you keep your smile beautiful.
Protective Gear Greatly Reduces Chances Of Injury
By wearing properly fitted mouthguards and other forms of protective gear, athletes of all ages can significantly reduce the risk of serious facial injuries. This spring, as your urge to hit the field or court grows stronger, remember to use appropriate protective gear on your face as well!
3 Safety Tips
- Wear a mouthguard for all sports, including rugby, soccer, cricket, and netball. Other games may apply too!
- Wear a helmet and protective eyewear, when appropriate. Special face shields can also help to protect your skin and prevent sun damage.
- Be alert! Whether you are in the game or cheering from the sidelines, pay attention to your surroundings.
We want everyone to be active, and smart during the upcoming season! If you aren’t sure of the type of protective gear you should wear for a sport or outdoor activity, please ask us if you need a mouthgaurd. We’re here to make sure you have a great time this spring and summer, all while being safe.
