Hope Dental reminds families to protect kids going back to school sports.
STOCKTON, CA, Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - With back-to-school just around the corner, many families prepare for another year of sports. Dr. Todd A. Franklin, a family dentist in Stockton, Ca, reminds everyone of the importance of mouthguards in the prevention of injuries.
Mouthguards are essential to protect teeth and avoid costly emergency dental treatment for families with a limited budget and/or no insurance. Dr. Todd A. Franklin, a renowned cosmetic dentist in Stockton, California, advocates for custom mouthguards for their additional role in concussion prevention. Teenagers need more time to recover from concussions than adults and multiple concussions can cause permanent brain damage.
The Center for Disease Control reports the following statistics:
- Every year in the U.S. there are an estimated 300,000 High School athletes who suffer sports-related concussions.
- Football players have a 47.1% chance of sustaining a concussion, the highest of any other high school sport.
- Lacrosse, soccer, wrestling, basketball, softball, volleyball, and baseball round out the sports where teenagers have an increased chance of sustaining a concussion.
