Summer Safety

June 2015

youth football playerWe encourage our members to get out and get active, but make sure you're also staying safe!

It is reported that between 13% and 39% of dental injuries in older children and adults result from sports. Make sure you're taking precaution to protect your teeth this summer. Prevent sports-related injuries by using proper equipment. Make sure you wear your helmet, and if you're playing a contact sport, a mouth guard is a must. On average, mouth guards help prevent roughly 200,000 mouth injuries per year among football players.

If you find yourself with a dental emergency from a sports injury, more often than not it can be fixed. Even a tooth that has been knocked out can be saved if you keep the tooth and get to a dentist quickly enough.

However, these dental emergencies can really add up. If you're playing a contact sport or could risk mouth injury, sign up for the State of Texas Dental Discount PlanSM in Summer Enrollment! This plan can help you get 20% to 60% off of your next dental bill for a low monthly fee.
