Potential safety hazards occur when you combine the hard surfaces of ice, boards, speeding pucks, and collisions all into one fast game. Point Family Dentistry celebrates Minneapolis’ active spirit and is determined to do what they can to show this support.
There’s an expression: All’s fun and games ’til someone loses a…tooth. Losing a tooth or multiple teeth can have devastating consequences to one’s oral health and self-confidence. Though we’re very capable when it comes to restorative dentistry, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure always!
For this reason, as this year’s hockey season began gearing up, our Point Family Dentistry clinic was pleased to offer custom fit mouth guards free of charge for players of the Bloomington Amateur Hockey Association during the month of September. This was important to us after reading the statistics provided by the American Dental Association which reported, “more than 200,000 injuries are prevented each year” simply because of the use of mouth guards!
In days past, many hockey players had missing front teeth because of a failure to protect them. Today, comfortable mouth guards are readily available from our clinic to soften those blows!
Point Family Dentistry always keeps Minneapolis residents dental needs, including those of our sports enthusiasts, foremost in mind. Consult with us today!
