Child injuries can be prevented by using caution

Posted On Mon, April 9, 2012

A report completed by the American Association of Orthodonitists, along with several other groups, noted that parents need to take action to ensure their child is safe when they play sports.

The report found that even though children are at a high risk of getting their teeth, mouths or head damaged during sporting events, many adults don't stress the need to use items that can prevent such injuries. More than two-thirds of parents noted that their kids don't wear mouth guards when playing sports.

In addition, approximately 85 percent of kids don't use mouth guards because they are not required to do this, the report added. Children should not only use these items to prevent injury, but they may benefit from other items as well. Protective eyewear, helmets and face shields all can go a long way in preventing injury.

Those parents who are not happy with their health insurance plan may want to make sure they have compared health insurance quotes to ensure they have the best policy possible. The more sufficient the plan is, the likely the whole family will be happy.
