April is National Facial Protection Month, which makes this is an excellent time to remind all athletes to wear mouthguards — regardless of your sport of choice.

The American Dental Association estimates that mouthguards prevent 200,000 dental injuries annually. Just think how many more teeth could be saved if everyone followed the ADA recommendations during all high-impact sports. A recent survey revealed that 84 percent of youth athletes do not wear mouthguards.

We want to change that for families in and around Johnson City, NY. It’s why we make custom-fitted sports mouthguards as part of our family dentistry.

If you would like a mouthguard for yourself or someone in your family, call Dr. Jerry Farrell’s office at 607-304-3993 or contact us online.
