It seems like April is a month full of awareness issues and causes! Not only is April Alcohol Awareness Month, but it is also Facial Protection Month! That means all you athletes and weekend warriors need to take extra care of your face, head and neck! Here is what you can do in honor of Facial Protection Month:

Spread the Word!

We still have a couple weeks left of April, so don’t stop raising awareness just yet! At Craniofacial Pain & Dental Sleep Center of Georgia we want to spread the word to help remind both children and adults that as you suit up for your outdoor activities this spring don’t forget to protect your face and head! After all, we need both!

Spring is the time when everyone wants to be outside—whether you are simply enjoying the weather or participating in other outdoor activities. It is also the time when a flood of patients might suffer from head, mouth, and facial injuries, as the result of sports-related accidents. Many oral and facial injuries can be easily prevented with the use of mouth guards and other sports safety equipment!

Help raise awareness in conjunction with the Academy for Sports Dentistry, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and the American Association of Orthodontists, as well as Craniofacial Pain & Dental Sleep Center of Georgia.

For more information about the prevention and treatment of facial injury, please visit our website or give us a call! After all, we want to make sure you can enjoy this beautiful weather without complications.
