Dentists Recommend Kids Use Mouthguard To Protect Them When Doing Sports

Medical professionals of American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) had recommended that children wear mouthguards while taking part in any sports activity in order to prevent //mouth injuries.

Each year, more than 3.5 million children, age14 and under are injured while playing sports or participating in recreational activities.

"Injuries to the face from participating in a sport or other recreational activity can harm your child’s teeth, lips, cheeks and tongue, but a properly fitted mouthguard can help protect your child’s smile,” says Edmond Hewlett, D.D.S., an ADA consumer advisor and associate professor at UCLA’s School of Dentistry.

Always consult your pediatrician on the sport that is right for your child’s age and abilities.”

“In the past few years, since high schools and colleges began to require mouthguards and facemasks for football, about 200,000 injuries to the mouth and face have been p
