The AAPD states that it is estimated that 30 million children in the US participate in organized sport programs. Sports accidents reportedly account for 10-39% of all dental injuries in children. Children are most susceptible to sports-related oral injury between the ages of 7 and 11 years. If your child participates in an organized sport, please make sure that all protective equipment is worn at all times and discuss the possibility of a customized mouth guard with our team. Good luck and play safe!
