Almost everyone has an uncle, or cousin, or dad whose snoring is legendary. We often joke about these people and tell stories of how their snoring vibrates walls. However, for many families, this is no joking matter. Snoring often deprives others of sleep and sometimes leads to couples having to sleep in separate bedrooms.
With the summer sports season just around the corner, we’d like to remind everyone to think about safety. What do you think might happen if you (or one of your children) got hit in the mouth or jaw while playing a contact sports activity? If you weren’t wearing properly fitted mouth guard, the answer in a nutshell is: A Lot!
Professionally designed dental mouth guards are one of the most important pieces of sporting equipment any active individual can have because dental injuries can result in lost time from school or employment and can be costly to treat. While a mouth guard cannot protect against every conceivable injury, it can significantly decrease the likelihood of a debilitating and perhaps facially disfiguring injury.
Did you know that professionally designed & crafted sports mouth guards prevent some 200,000 serious oral/facial injuries in elementary & high school sports alone each year?
