Can you believe summer is officially three days away? We can’t! At Vickie Greenberg Orthodontics, our staff knows that the summer months bring with them an increase in outdoor activities, as well as a greater chance of our young athletes in treatment damaging their teeth. If you’re playing sports this summer, it’s important that you consult Pasadena’s Dr. Vickie Greenberg for special precautions, such as wearing a mouth guard. Mouth guards are advised for playing spring sports such as baseball, soccer, lacrosse and many, many others.
In case of any accident involving the face this summer, we want you to check your mouth and appliances immediately. If teeth are loosened or the appliances are damaged, please schedule an appointment to see Dr. Greenberg immediately. And don’t forget to ask us—Dr. Greenberg will be more than happy to provide a mouth guard for any patient in active treatment!
Our team will always tell you that only by using a mouth guard and other forms of facial protection can people with and without braces avoid serious sports injuries. Please give us a call at (626) 798-7645 if you have any questions about mouth guards or your treatment with us.
