Dental Injuries can happen at any season. It just seems like we see more of them as springtime sports and outdoor activities begin each year. Thus, we welcome you to Part 1 of our 3-Part blog series on dental injuries. We hope you, as a parent, can make it through spring and summer without experiencing one of the emergencies detailed in these blogs.
However, these blogs will tell you what to do if your child endures a spring dental injury. And remember, if you follow the mouthguard advice of our previous blog, your child’s chances of evading these dental injuries will be much improved.

Whether it is the result of a ball hitting the mouth, or the mouth hitting the ground, pain and tears will always be the result. As we have said before, parents are their children’s first responders.
