(SAVANNAH, GA) Angela Canfield, DDS of Premier Dental Designs in Rincon, and soon to open her second family dentist office in Sandfly, is donating custom-made maroon and white mouth guards to the Benedictine Military School football team. Custom-made Intact mouth guards provide stability to the players’ jaws and cushion blows that can cause severe dental injuries, like broken teeth, fractured jaws, gum lacerations and injuries to their lips or tongue by their teeth.
“Damaging jaw and tooth impact can be caused by anything from direct contact to a misplaced step while running,” said Dr. Canfield. “I chose to donate the gear because research shows that wearing custom-fit mouth guards reduces the risk of severe injuries.”
Custom-fit mouth guards normally cost $85 a piece. Dr. Canfield is donating 110 custom-fit mouth guards to the Benedictine Military School football team free of charge.
Dr. Canfield and four of her staff members are going to Benedictine’s football camp Saturday, Aug. 2 at 1:30 p.m. to take impressions of the football players’ teeth. The impressions will help Dr. Canfield and her staff align the mouth guards with the players’ Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) to provide maximum impact protection.
The mouth guards have a one year warranty. The warranty covers the dental expenses incurred by players if they are injured while wearing the mouth guards. The warranty also pays $1,093.75 per injured or replaced tooth and up to a maximum total liability of $35,000 per incident.
The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that the use of mouth guards prevents approximately 200,000 injuries per year in high school and college football teams alone.
Every year, Dr. Canfield will be selecting an impact sports team to donate mouth guards as part of The Canfield Mouth-Shield Program. Applications for the 2015 Canfield Mouth-Shield Team should be submitted to Dr. Canfield’s office. Applications must be submitted before June 1, 2015 to be considered by the advisory board.
In September, Dr. Candfield is scheduled to open a second location in the Norwood Market located in Sandfly. For more information, visit http://www.sandflyfamilydental.com/ .
