Attention All SCC Athletes!
FREE MOUTH GUARD CLINIC
Friday December 5, 2014 2:30PM at the School
According to the the National Youth Sports Foundation for the Prevention of Athletic Injuries, Inc., dental injuries are the most common type or oral-facial injury sustained during participation in sports. It is estimated by the American Dental Association that mouth guards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year in high school and collegiate football alone. Football where mouth guards are required, 0.07% of the injuries were oral-facial. In basketball where mouth guards are not routinely worn, 34% of the injuries were oral-facial. Victims of total tooth avulsions can face a lifetime dental cost of $10,000 – $15,000 per tooth and hours in the dentist’s chair.
This Friday and next Wednesday, Dr. Marc A Johnson of Smiles for Life Dental Care along with SCC student volunteers with an interest in Dentistry are doing a Winter Mouth Guard Clinic. Any SCC student athlete may receive a professionally fitted custom mouth guard as a public service and at NO charge. These Lab Processed Mouth Guards typically cost $225-$400 to have made in a dental office. Most of the clinic volunteers are Seniors and I hear their Prom Fund could really use a donation if you are so inclined:)
