April is National Facial Protection Month
The simple act of wearing a mouth guard when playing contact sports saves tens of thousands of teeth annually, while other safety equipment such as helmets and face shields protect wearers from facial injuries. Each April, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAoMS), American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Association of Orthodontists, Academy for Sports Dentistry, and American Dental Association team up to enhance awareness of protection from and specialized treatment for facial injuries.
*Don't forget to wear your facial protection and mouth guard!!*
