At Meadows Dental Care, there is nothing more important to us then creating and maintaining beautiful and healthy smiles for our patients. We proudly practice at our Palatine office but also serve the surrounding communities with dental care. The doctors and their team strive to teach our patients the importance of protecting the smile we work so hard to maintain. It is important to protect your smile through a great oral hygiene regiment as well as protecting it through everyday activities.
What Is National Facial Protection Month?
National Facial Protection Month is held during the month of April where dental and orthodontic professionals spread the word about protecting your face, mouth and head. Spring is often the time when we find that patients suffer the most injuries resulting from sports-related accidents. Although we are able to handle emergency situations, we would rather have our patients be prepared when it comes to protecting their smile. The Doctors joins the following associations in recognizing this month:
- Academy For Sports Dentistry
- American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- American Dental Association
- American Association of Oral and Maxilofacial Surgeons
- American Association of Orthodontist
- How You Protect Your Mouth This Spring
One of the best ways to protect your mouth during orthodontic treatment is to wear a customized mouth guard while participating in any sports or athletic activities. Whether you are playing baseball, lacrosse or even running track, we encourage you to practice facial protection!
If your child is in braces, it is especially important that you protect the mouth from the brackets and braces that can pierce skin when hit in the mouth.
