The American Association of Orthodontists and football great Emmitt Smith is encouraging kids to “Play It Safe” during organized and recreational sports.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, To reduce these numbers, the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) is proud to team with football great Emmitt Smith to spread the message that simple and inexpensive protective sports gear – such as mouth guards – can make a difference in preventing sports injuries.

In support, Dr. Stephen Yao is giving away free MOUTH GUARD entire month of April!  Yes, at Braces for Pretty Faces, WE CARE about your winning smiles.   

Young athletes can protect their face and smile while playing with the following tips from the AAO:

Wear a mouth guard. Mouth guards can help prevent jaw, mouth and teeth injuries caused by a collision or fall. For athletes with braces, discuss with your orthodontist the best type of mouth guard for your sport.

  • Wear a helmet. Helmets absorb the energy of an impact, and should be worn for activities like biking, skateboarding and in-line skating. Visit the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website to learn helmet laws in your state.
  • Wear protective eyewear. Eyes are extremely vulnerable to injury during sports like soccer, baseball and hockey.
  • Wear a face shield to avoid scratched or bruised skin. Hockey pucks, basketballs and racquetballs can do severe damage.

We would love for you to participate in Sport Day on April 12th & 13th by dressing up in your favorite sport gear when you come in for your appointment.  We can't wait to see YOU in them!!
