April Is National Facial Protection Month!
Posted on 04/01/2018

April is National Facial Protection Month (NFPM) and as a member of the American Association of Orthodontists Dr. Horbaly, and his team, makes every effort to educate you about the importance of adhering to the rules and responsibilities that come with wearing braces. We do this to ensure you reach your final goal of a dazzling, healthy, straight smile.
During the month of April we encourage you to continue your efforts of protecting your smile and your entire face by remembering these simple tips when participating in contact sports or other activities where head and/or facial injuries are hight risk:
*WEAR A MOUTH GUARD. We have orthodontic mouth guards at our office and give them to all our patients who need them.
*WEAR THE APPROPRIATE HELMET FOR YOUR SPORT.
*WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR.
*AS A SPECTATOR, BE ALERT to avoid foul baseballs, lacrosse balls, and flying hockey pucks. It happens!

These tips are for a lifetime, not just while wearing braces. Be proactive for NFPM, and every month of the year!
