A Month of Protection

According to the American Association of Orthodontists website, April 2012 was "National Facial Protection Month," but as Spring sports heat up, it shouldn't stop there.

Spring and Summer sports may seem less physically demanding than the more obvious contact sports of Fall (like Football and Hockey,) but there is still good reason to wear protection, especially if your wear braces.

Many people recognize Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter as a great player, but he's also a dedicated mouthguard supporter, wearing a clear mouthguard during every game. As tennis becomes a more rugged sport (just watch Rafael Nadal or Novac Djokovic throw their bodies around the courts,) a mouthguard is a great idea, especially if you wear braces.

Of course, the most grueling Spring and Summer sport is Lacrosse, and that is a sport that demands protective gear, both on the head and on the mouth.

If you wear braces, it's ALWAYS a good idea to wear a mouthguard, and you can have Dr. Martin custom fit a mouthguard for your mouth! Look for a future StraightTalk article about custom mouthguards that are FLAVORED!
