Happy April! It’s National Facial Protection Month, which means the top dental associations in the country are reminding you of the importance of playing it safe when participating in recreational and organized sports and activities. The campaign strives to encourage more people to use safety equipment to reduce their risk of head and neck injuries while playing sports. 

Founded by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), National Facial Protection Month is a great time to educate yourself on the need for proper facial protection, i.e. mouthguards, and the potential risks associated with a lack of protection. You can start by watching this video from the American Dental Association (ADA) on Why Having A Mouthguard Is Important.

Then, call our Bryan, Texas dental office at 979-213-6630 to schedule an appointment where we can get you or your family members fitted for a custom mouthguard.
