Play it Safe this Spring

It's springtime and it's again time to remind our patients at Garai Orthodontic Specialist to protect their faces and pearly whites while out on the field playing sports. According to the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation, children, high-school athletes and adults have more than 5,000,000 teeth knocked out in sporting events annually.

If you are planning on participating in spring sports, it’s imperative to have a proper-fitting mouthguard. Mouthguards can prevent chipped or broken teeth, lip and cheek injuries, jaw fractures, mouth lacerations and even concussions.

Having a mouthguard can make the difference between losing your teeth or not, and because many of our patients who play high school sports have jaws that are still growing, last year’s mouthguard may no longer fit as it should. Dr. Allen Garai & Dr. Karen Tratensek and our team at Garai Orthodontic Specialist can fit you for a new guard.

To learn more about mouthguards or for general questions about your treatment at our Vienna, VA & Great Falls VA office, please give us a call!
