BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Pearly Whites Pediatric Dentistry is giving back to the community by offering all student athletes a free custom fitted mouthguard to protect their precious smiles.
More than five million teeth are knocked out in sporting activities each year. In addition, the American Dental Association estimates that more than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented annually thanks to the use of custom-made mouthguards. Just as helmets, shoulder pads, and knee pads are worn to protect against sports-related injuries, mouthguards are an equally important part of protective gear.
Custom-fit athletic mouthguards will also serve to protect the soft tissues (lips, gums, cheeks), protect teeth from fracture, and possibly help reduce the incidence and severity of concussions according to dental experts.
