Most kids enjoy playing sports, but in addition to playing fair and square, they must also play it safe. That’s why the Pediatric Dental Center is taking time to remind parents what they can do to protect their active children’s smiles.
Whether they like soccer or baseball or riding a bike, the number one thing to do by far is to make sure they wear a mouthguard. When a tooth gets knocked out there can be long-term consequences, and a mouthguard goes a long way toward preventing that.
In addition to the trauma of a knocked-out tooth, there can be a big cost involved: a whole lot more than the cost of safety gear. Furthermore, when a baby tooth is knocked out it could cause the permanent teeth to come in cooked. In the short term, it makes it difficult to eat.
So along with all the appropriate gear – helmet, knee and elbow pads, and shin guards – be sure your youngster is wearing a mouthguard. At Pediatric Dental Center we place a lot of importance on preventative care. We want all our young patients to enjoy excellent dental health and offer complete in pediatric dentistry. We have offices in Burlington, Cold Spring and Crestview Hills KY. Call for an appointment today!
