April is almost here. As the weather warms up, people get outside more and often play sports. Sports injuries or trauma are a common cause of tooth loss. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons as well as the office of John Freeman MD, DDS, FACS promote awareness for the need for oral and facial protection while participating in sporting activities. You will want to see your local dentist so that they may fabricate a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth. So for the upcoming month of April, please help us promote facial protection awareness.
