Don’t Forget Mouth Guards On Your Back-To-School Checklist!

It’s that time of year again – time for the kids to head back to school! No doubt you’re busy helping them prepare for the new school year by working your way down your “back-to-school” checklist – binders, check. Pencils, check. Cool new outfits, check. But is your checklist missing something crucial for your kids’ safety?

 

If your kids participate in any of the following school sports, they could be at risk for facial or dental injuries:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Field and ice hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Water polo
  • Wrestling

 

Additionally, some after-school activities could also put your kids and teens at risk for injuries, including:

  • Gymnastics
  • Martial arts
  • Skateboarding
  • Skiing and snowboarding

 

Kids heading back to school in Waldorf need mouth guards to prevent painful and expensive dental injuries! We make it EASY for you to cross “sports mouth guards” off your checklist with two convenient options:

 

  1. If your child is due for a cleaning, book his or her appointment now and we’ll fit him or her for a mouth guard during the same visit, to help save you valuable time! We have plenty of openings available within the next two weeks so we can get kids in before school starts.

 

  1. If your child recently had a cleaning and checkup, call us to schedule a 15-minute mouth guard impression. The mouth guard will then be ready for pick-up within a week!

 

Custom-fit mouth guards from your Waldorf dental team are the best option to keep your kids safe and protected during school sports! Please call Dr Olson for more information at 301-645-6611 today!
