Tooth Trauma

Fall Sports Season

September 6th, 2017

Are you ready for some football?  Tomorrow is opening night for the NFL season, which reminds us of the importance of protecting our teeth while playing sports.  All sports, but especially contact sports put teeth at risk for trauma.

Trauma to a tooth can range in severity.  Most minimally, a tooth can fracture which then requires a tooth-colored filling to be placed to repair the fracture.  A more severe fracture can make it necessary to have a root canal and crown to repair the tooth when the fracture has gone into the nerve.  Or, the trauma to a tooth can be so severe that the tooth dislodges entirely from the socket.  Any of these outcomes can be concerning and costly.  The best part is however, that many injuries to teeth can be prevented or at least lessened, by wearing a properly fitted mouthguard.

Did you know that Dr. Stevens is an authorized Under Armour mouthguard provider?

This month we are offering 10% all of our Under Armour mouthguards.  This includes both the stock and custom mouthguards.  Stop by the office to pick up your stock mouthguard, or call to schedule for impressions for your custom mouthguard.

We hope everyone has a *SAFE* and fun fall sports season!
