At Zammitti Orthodontics, we care about your beautiful smile, and we want to help protect you from sports injuries that can be detrimental to your pearly whites. The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) has introduced the Moms for Mouth Guards Pledge as a way of helping make sure that children are using proper facial protection equipment.Mouth guards are vital to protecting your teeth from sports related injuries while participating in sports, such as football, soccer, baseball, hockey, and basketball, to name a few. The Moms for Mouth Guards Pledge is a way for mothers nationwide to make a commitment to protecting their child’s smile from facial injuries.

In past entries, we’ve discussed the importance of using facial protection when exercising to prevent injury. Today, we at Zammitti Orthodontics we are inviting moms to take action by visiting the Moms for Mouth Guards website and taking the Moms for Mouth Guards Pledge.

Have a safe week everyone!
