Can you believe we’re only a couple of months from summer? As the weather stays hot through the long, hot Arizona summer, the chances for you athletes to sustain a mouth injury get likelier and likelier (because most of you are spending so much time outdoors or participating in more sports-related activities). Dr. Hunter and our staff would like to remind our young athletes in treatment to always take care of both your mouth and appliances while participating in contact- and non-contact sports.
That includes wearing a mouth guard at all times when you’re out on the field. Only by using a mouth guard can kids with and without braces avoid serious sports injuries. And don’t forget to ask us for a mouth guard – Dr. Hunter will provide a mouth guard for anyone in active treatment!
We hope you’re having a terrific Monday!
