It’s that time of year again – time for the kids to head back to school! No doubt you’re busy helping them prepare for the new school year by working your way down your “back-to-school” checklist – binders, check. Pencils, check. Cool new outfits, check. But is your checklist missing something crucial for your kids’ safety?
If your kids participate in any of the following school sports, they could be at risk for facial or dental injuries:
- Field and ice hockey
- Water polo
Additionally, some after-school activities could also put your kids and teens at risk for injuries, including:
- Martial arts
- Skiing and snowboarding
Kids heading back to school in Seattle need mouth guards to prevent painful and expensive dental injuries! We make it EASY for you to cross “sports mouth guards” off your checklist with two convenient options:
- If your child is due for a cleaning, book his or her appointment with your Seattle dentist, Dr. Vicki Fidler, now and we’ll fit him or her for a mouth guard during the same visit, to help save you valuable time! We have plenty of openings available within the next two weeks so we can get kids in before school starts.
- If your child recently had a cleaning and checkup, call us to schedule a 15-minute mouth guard impression. The mouth guard will then be ready for pick-up within a week!
Custom-fit mouth guards from your Seattle dental team are the best option to keep your kids safe and protected during school sports! Contact us at Fidler on the Tooth for more information at 206-526-1437 today!
