Mouth Guard Clinics

braces tucsonOrthoPros offers mouth guard clinics throughout the year to various youth sports organizations in our community as way to educate and assist young athletes in the importance of proper facial protection while engaging in contact sports. Each athlete who participates in our clinics receives a free custom-fit mouth guard.

Mouth guards aren’t just for athletes with braces. The use of mouth guards can reduce the chance of painful and extensive dental trauma due to hits in the face.

According to Safe Kids USA and the American Academy of Pediatrics, more than 30 million children ages 5-14 participate in sports each year— which is the primary cause of tooth loss in people under the age of 35. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that baseball, basketball and football account for about 80% of all sports-related emergency room visits for children between 5 and 14 years of age.

The OrthoPros team encourages parents and student athletes to be aware of the important role mouth guards play in avoiding injuries during contact sports. Wearing a mouth guard is especially important for athletes with braces – it protects the cheeks and lips, and reduces the chance for lacerations in the mouth.

We hold mouth guard clinics throughout the year for children ages 8 -12. If you are involved in youth sports in the Tucson area and are interested in having your team fitted for mouth guards, please contact Cindy Leon at 520.290.8787 or [email protected] ​
