College basketball is wrapping up while baseball season is (hopefully) just around the corner. Closer to home, youth baseball and softball teams are getting ready to take the field again. When they do, we hope they have gloves, bats, helmets, and athletic mouthguards.
You may not realize it, but baseball is the sport that causes the most dental injuries among kids 7- to 13-years old, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Wearing a mouthguard could be the difference between a sore lip and a lost tooth.
For the best protection, get custom mouthguards, which we would be happy to make for you and your loved ones. Call 256-274-8680 or schedule online to set up an appointment at Charles F. Betts, Jr., DMD, Family Dentistry in Decatur, AL.
