Protect your teeth

Protect your teeth

As the summer approaches sports and activities will be picking up for kids! We recommend that everyone wear a sports guard while playing sports that involve moving objects.

A sports guard will help protect you against:

  • concussion
  • damage to your jaw joint
  • soft tissue injury
  • lost teeth
  • neck injuries

If you or your child does have a tooth knocked out, we recommend:

  • pick up the tooth by the chewing surface (do not touch the root of the tooth)
  • if the tooth is dirty, rinse it with water or milk, do not rub or dry it
  • keep the tooth moist, preferably in a glass of milk
  • call a dentist or endodontist within 30 minutes of the incident
