April is National Facial Protection Month

Spring Sports & Safety

As you suit up for outdoor activities this spring, don’t forget to protect your face and head.  Spring often brings a flood of patients suffering with head, mouth and facial injuries resulting from sports-related accidents to doctors’ offices and emergency rooms. Many oral and facial injuries can be easily prevented with the use of sports safety equipment like helmets and mouth guards.  In case of an injury, know the first-aid 101 for injuries.
