Free Mouthguard Fitting Night – April 9th

Did you know that Mouthguards help prevent 200,000 injuries a year?

We are offering a FREE custom-fitted*mouthguard fitting night on Thursday, April 9th from 6:00-8:00pm at 105 West Street in Keene because we know how important it is to protect your teeth during sports, and keep that beautiful smile. We will fit your child for a custom mouthguard, which can be picked up at a later time.

(*Custom-fitted. These are made by your dentist for you personally. They are more expensive than the other versions, but because they are customized, usually offer the best fit.)

What sports should wear a mouthguard? Here is the list recommended by the ADA:

The American Dental Association recommends wearing custom mouthguards for the following sports: acrobats, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shot putting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, and wrestling. Other experts include baseball and softball infielders on that list.

 

Please take a moment to fill out the Mouthguard Waiver form to save you some time at the clinic.

Thank you!

 

 

Want your smile to sparkle like Katy Perry?

Here are the secret tips & tricks for a sparkling smile that will glow everytime you smile. Dental Health is important not only for a great smile, but for your overall health.

1) Brush Your Teeth! The ADA recommends at least Twice a Day, for Two-minutes. With braces we encourage you to try to brush after every meal, or rinse. Skipping this important routine, can cause issues from bad breath, to cavities and even gingivitis. When you don’t brush you risk meeting these mouth monsters.

2) Floss Your Teeth. Just by brushing you are still missing 35% of your teeth surfaces. Braces provide even more places for bacteria to hide. Visit our Brushing and Flossing page to see how to properly brush and floss.

3) Eat Teeth Healthy Foods. During your treatment with braces it is important to eat healthy foods, however even after your treatment sugary foods and drinks can dull your sparkling smile. Here is a video with tips on what to eat while you are in treatment.

If you have questions or concerns on how to make your smile sparkle just ask us!

Show us a picture of you brushing your teeth in our Toothbrushing Selfie contest running through March 11th!
