Protect your smile always

April is National Facial Protection Month—a time when members of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association and the Academy for Sports Dentistry remind parents to make sure their young athletes play it safe and wear a mouth guard and other appropriate safety gear at every practice and every game. Parents and coaches are urged to make sure that mouth guards and safety gear are a consistent part of young athletes’ uniforms. A mouth guard is a smart investment. Its cost is a fraction of the costs associated with emergency care of a broken or knocked-out tooth. Such costs can reach the tens of thousands of dollars over a lifetime. Protect that precious smile. Come into Bishop Orthodontics and receive 20 percent off a custom fit mouth guard!
