Would you believe we’re already halfway through summer? As the weather stays hot through September, 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!
By the way, our summer contest is going strong and our entries have been amazing! Flat Dr. Hunter has traveled 24,041 miles and is still going strong! Don’t forget to submit your entries to us on Facebook by August 27th and remember the most CREATIVE photo wins a Nikon digital camera! Good Luck!
We hope you’re having a terrific summer!
