Do you have a son or daughter playing sports? Soccer, baseball, football, and basketball can be very dangerous for your child’s teeth. At Alaska Premier Dental Group in Anchorage, we provide protective mouth guards.
Football is a violent contact sport, yet has a relatively low rate of teeth injuries compared to other contact sports. Why? That’s an easy one. Football players are required to wear a mouth guard and a helmet.
Make no mistake: we’re big believers in athletics. They teach kids about teamwork, help kids make friends, boost self-esteem – the list of benefits goes on and on. But precautions are essential.
If your child participates in a contact sport and does not currently wear a mouth guard, we strongly recommend that, at very least, you pick one up at an athletic supply store. Even better, give us a call to find out about the custom-fitted mouth guards provided by Alaska Premier Dental Group.
To discuss your child’s dental condition or to learn more about custom-made athletic mouth guards, call Alaska Premier Dental Group for a consultation. We also provide general and family dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening.
