We have been a local family dentist office serving Shorewood, IL and nearby communities for years. A big part of our practice is our pediatric care.

That’s why we want to take a moment this month — which is also National Facial Protection Month — to remind you that your kids’ smiles are worth protecting. We’re sharing a short video from the American Dental Association with information about what you should look for in a mouthguard.

As a general rule, your children should be wearing their mouthguards if they play any sport that involves one or more of the following:

  • Changing speed or directions often
  • Physical contact between competitors
  • Frequent jumping
  • Flying objects (pucks, balls, etc.)
