Young athletes in this country will lose five million teeth in sports-related injuries this year.
First Choice Dental Group is urging student athletes to put on their GameFace!
The organization is hosting GameFace Week next week.
Student athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 can get a complimentary, custom fit mouth guard.
"It's very costly to replace a tooth if you have a tooth knocked out and we don't like to see kids come in with teeth knocked out." says Dr. David Penwell from the First Choice Dental Group.
To get one, call any First Choice Dental Group office and schedule an appointment.
They will provide up to five hundred complimentary mouth guards to teams or individuals.
