Moses Lake Orthodontist David Feller protects youth athletes through mouth guard program
Online PR News – 30-June-2015 – MOSES LAKE, WA – Dr. David Feller, owner of Feller Orthodontics in Moses Lake, WA has launched a Mouth Guard program to benefit local youth athletes.
The National Youth Sports Safety Foundation reports that athletes who do not wear mouth guards are sixty times more likely to damage teeth.
A properly fitted mouth guard is one of the most popular tools to help prevent sports-related injuries to the mouth and teeth. A mouth guard is a flexible device worn over teeth during athletic and recreational activities. Mouth guards act as shock absorbers to keep the mouth and jaws safe when a player is hit in the head or face. This helps protect against chipped or broken teeth, root and bone damage and tooth loss. They also safeguard against more serious injuries such as jaw fracture, cerebral hemorrhage, concussion and neck injuries by helping to avoid situations where the lower jaw slams into the upper jaw.
This year, several teams will benefit from Dr. Feller’s Mouth Guard Program including the Chief Moses Middle School football team and the Moses Lake High School women’s soccer team.
Dr. Feller is passionate about this cause and is taking his Mouth Guard Program a step further this summer by offering all student athletes in the Moses Lake School District a complimentary, professionally fitted, Shock Doctor Sports mouth guard, specific to the sport played. Middle and High School Students must simply show a Moses Lake School District Student ID when coming in for a mouth guard. This summer promotion applies to both current patients and students who are not patients of Dr. Feller.
“Sports injuries are a serious issue and we want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to protect our young athletes in our community,” says Dr. David Feller.
