National Facial Protection MonthTuesday, April 26th, 2011, 4:10 pm
National Facial Protection Month is not the catchiest phrase but the idea behind the program is important. The month of April has been designated as a good time to remind everyone to use a mouthguard during sports and recreational activities.
Most people think about the importance of mouthguards when they, or their kids, are playing contact sports such as football. Protecting the teeth during other forms of sports and exercise is also important. Countless teeth are knocked out or damaged during routine city league soccer and basketball games.
A new reason to think about mouthguards – performance enhancement! Yes, certain mouthguards such as Under Armour Performance Mouthwear are designed to help your body perform at its peak. These custom fabricated performance mouthguards utilize the science of neuromuscular dentistry to stabilize your jaw in an optimal position for breathing, muscle relaxation and therefore, higher physical performance. Golfers, tennis players, runners and other athletes can all benefit from Under Armour Performance Mouthwear.
If you are interested in improving your performance at your favorite sport or if you have questions regarding the need for facial protection for you or your child please contact Wilbanks Smile Center at 706-886-9439 today.
