Before long, as Fall Football will be wrapping up and the excitement of Basketball gets underway, many of our patients will be hanging up their cleats and hitting the court for free throws, jump shots and fast breaks! During this time of transition, it is important to remind all athletes to play it safe when out on the court. Many athletes not only hang up their cleats but also disregard their athletic mouth guards. Unfortunately, basketball remains the number one sport for dental injuries! Although many younger players are more concerned about having the right shoes, basketball is definitely a contact sport and wearing a mouth guard at all times, even during a practice scrimmage, is a very important part of your basketball gear.
Our office can provide you with a custom Athletic Guard for anyone engaging in tooth or mouth-threatening Sports activities such as basketball. If you have any questions or are in need of an appointment, call our our office at 918-455-0123! Play safe!
