Facial Protection Month

April is National Facial Protection Month, and this is a cause we care deeply about at Bowers Orthodontic Specialists. Protecting your face is important to the health of your smile, and that's doubly true when you're wearing braces – and because so many of our patients are athletes, that makes Facial Protection Month a very important time. While we love cheering our athletic patients on, most sports pose a danger to teeth and braces. Thankfully, there's a simple solution to keep your face, braces, and smile protected.

Custom-Made Mouthguards in Bloomington

A custom-made mouthguard is one of the simplest, most effective ways of protecting your face and orthodontics during sports and other activities. These mouthguards provide a layer of cushion and protection from falls, hits, or other impacts, helping to keep both teeth and braces safe. While store-bought mouthguards exist, they don't offer the same protection and generally won't work with braces – so we always recommend a custom-made mouthguard. We can create your mouthguard specifically to fit your smile and orthodontics, providing the best possible protection no matter what you're doing.
