Image Orthodontics Supplies Local Athletes With Free Custom-Fit Mouth Guards

Glendora, California orthodontist donates mouth guards to a local wrestling team.

Glendora, California (I-Newswire) November 12, 2012 - As an effort to raise awareness of sports safety and increase the use of facial protection in youth sports, the doctors of Image Orthodontics are providing custom-fit mouth guards for several members of the Glendora High School wrestling team.

According to Safe Kids USA and the American Academy of Pediatrics, more than 30 million children ages 5-14 participate in sports each year- which is the primary cause of tooth loss in people under age 35. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that baseball, basketball and football account for about 80% of all sports-related emergency room visits for children between 5 and 14 years of age.

Image Orthodontics encourages parents and student athletes to be aware of the important role mouth guards can play in avoiding injuries during contact sports. Wearing a mouth guard is especially important for athletes with braces - it protects the cheeks and lips from the braces and reduces the chance for lacerations in the mouth.

Image Orthodontics is the local orthodontic practice and has served the residents of Glendora with attentive, compassionate and personalized care. Image Orthodontics uses the latest technological advances in the industry, such as lingual braces (100% invisible braces behind the teeth), self-ligating brackets, Invisalign®, and traditional metal and ceramic braces, along with the latest in computer technology and digital x-rays to ensure that patients receive the most effective care possible. Image Orthodontics offers fittings for custom mouth guards by appointment. For more information about Image Orthodontics or to schedule your custom mouth guard fitting, visit
