Most kids enjoy playing sports, but in addition to playing fair and square, they must also play it safe. That’s why Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte is taking time to remind parents what they can do to protect their active children’s smiles.
Whether they like soccer or baseball or riding a bike, the number one thing to do by far is to make sure they wear a mouthguard. When a tooth gets knocked out there can be long-term consequences, and a mouthguard goes a long way toward preventing that.
In addition to the trauma of a knocked-out tooth, there can be a big cost involved: a whole lot more than the cost of safety gear. Furthermore, when a baby tooth is knocked out it could cause the permanent teeth to come in cooked. In the short term, it makes it difficult to eat.
So along with all the appropriate gear – helmet, knee and elbow pads, and shin guards – be sure your youngster is wearing a mouthguard. At Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte we offer complete family dentistry services. Patients from Cotswold, South Park, Myers Park, 28270, 28210, and 28262 also come to us for cosmetic dentistry.
