- National Facial Protection Month

adolescents who participate in sports eventually will
suffer a facial injury severe enough to require medical
The dental associations offer the following five tips to
help prevent facial injury:
1.Wear a mouth guard when playing contact sports: Mouth
guards are significantly less expensive than the cost to
repair an injury, and dentists and dental specialists can
make customized mouth guards that hold teeth in place and
allow for normal speech and breathing.
2.Wear a helmet: Helmets absorb the energy of an impact
and help prevent damage to the head.
3.Wear protective eyewear: Eyes are extremely vulnerable
to damage, especially when playing sports.
4.Wear a face shield to avoid scratched or bruised skin:
Hockey pucks, basketballs and racquetballs can cause
severe facial damage at any age.
5.Make protective gear mandatory for all sports:
Acrobatics, Field Hockey, Racquetball, Squash
Bandy, Football, Rugby, Surfing
Baseball, Gymnastics, Shot Put, Volleyball
Basketball, Handball, Skateboarding, Water Polo
Bicycling, Ice Hockey, Skiing, Weightlifting
