FUN MOUTH GUARD FACTS
As the holiday season approaches I wanted to share with you some fun facts
DID YOU KNOW??????
Basketball in the sport that results in the most tooth injuries. An here I thought it was hockey.
80% of dental injuries in sports happen on the top row of teeth.
Only 76% of basketball players wear a sport guard. GO RAPTORS GO!!
Chiclets are the nickname that hockey players give their teeth.
The most common way hockey players suffer dental injury is not the puck but rather a stick to the face.
So to all you young and old hockey players PLEASE wear a MOUTH GUARD!!!
