The spring months bring an increase in outdoor activities and a greater chance of damaging your precious mouth and pearly whites. If you play sports, it’s important that you consult Dr. Whitlock for special precautions. A protective mouth guard is advised for playing contact sports such as basketball, football and soccer. In case of any accident involving the face, check your mouth and the appliances immediately. If teeth are loosened or the appliances damaged, please schedule an appointment with Whitlock Orthodontics.

Only by using a mouth guard and other forms of facial protection can kids with and without braces avoid serious sports injuries. Give us a call if you have any questions about mouth guards or your treatment at Whitlock Orthodontics.
