To help your family be prepared for when dental trauma occurs the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has created an easy-to-follow guide that you can print off and place on a fridge or bulletin board. Now you’re ready should a tooth be knocked out or chipped!

Injuries occur more frequently as children participate in organized sports. A properly fitting mouthguard is an important part of your child’s athletic gear. Mouthguards help protect not only teeth, but your child’s jaw, tongue, and face.
