In an attempt to help keep our local athletes safe, Dennehy Orthodontics is pleased to announce "Operation Mouthguard". The goal of this program is to provide custom mouthguards to local athletes and increase awareness about their importance.
The use of a mouthguard is recommended during any sport or activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth. A properly fitted mouthguard can help prevent broken teeth as well as injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. There is also some evidence to suggest that mouthguard use could reduce the risk of concussion caused by sport related trauma.
Unlike some other types of mouthguards, a custom fit mouthguard will stay in place, making it comfortable for the athlete to talk and breathe.
If you know any athletes who would be interested in a free custom mouthguard, please let them know of our program (athletes of all ages welcome).
