It's springtime and it's again time to remind our patients at Burk & Flinn Orthodontics to protect their faces and pearly whites while out on the field playing sports. According to the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation, children, high-school athletes and adults have more than 5,000,000 teeth knocked out in sporting events annually.

If you are planning on participating in spring sports, it’s imperative to have a proper-fitting mouthguard. Mouthguards can prevent chipped or broken teeth, lip and cheek injuries, jaw fractures, mouth lacerations and even concussions.

Having a mouthguard can make the difference between losing your teeth or not, and because many of our patients who play high school sports have jaws that are still growing, last year’s mouthguard may no longer fit as it should. Drs. Burk and Flinn and our team at Burk & Flinn Orthodontics can fit you for a new guard.

To learn more about mouthguards or for general questions about your treatment at our Rockville and Olney, MD office, please give us a call!
