April: National Facial Protection Month
Your mother may have said it and it's still true: once you've gotten your adult teeth, you don't get any more. So take good care of them.

Kids don't think about the lifetime of oral health issues they could incur by not using adequate mouth and facial protection while playing in sports. So, we have to do their thinking for them: coaches, parents, league organizers, schools, and recreation programs. A chief aim of National Facial Protection Month is to raise awareness nationwide of the need for sport safety.

According to Dr. Robert Bray, president of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), "As experts in helping patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile, the last thing my colleagues and I want to see is a smile ruined by a preventable injury."

Thankfully, many high-profile athletes are becoming public advocates for facial protections. Football hero Emmitt Smith is one, helping kids see that wearing a mouth guard is cool rather than weird. And the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) serves coaches, officials, administrators, parents, league directors and youngsters. NAYS advocates for safety through its 3,000 community programs in parks and recreation departments, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA and YWCA groups and more.

The AAO indicates that 80% of all sports-related emergency room visits occur in children ages 5 to 14. Don't let your child become part of that statistic. If worn properly and routinely, inexpensive mouth guards, helmets, protective eyewear, and face shields greatly reduce the risk of injury.
