Houston Cosmetic Dentist: April is National Facial Protection Month

April is National Facial Protection Month. This is the time to booster awareness about the importance of guarding against dental and facial injuries amongst athletes, parents, and coaches.  Many of us spend time and energy and money to gear up for sports and forget about the important mouthguard. 

It has been reported that athletes who do not wear mouthguards are 60% more likcly to have tooth related injuries.  In fact, in our office, in addition to seeing broken teeth from sports injuries  there are also lacerations on the lips and gums that most likely would not have been there with protective mouthguards. Additionally, some professionally made mouthguards can also prevent  TMJ related injuries. If you have questions regarding Houston, Texas Cosmetic Dentistry or Houston Texas TMJ please feel free to contact our office, Ronald W. Konig DDS, FAGD, LVIF  713-668-2289
