Proud Sponsor of Arden Little League
American River Orthodontics and Dr. Payne participate annually in the opening day ceremonies for Arden Little League. We have been promoting mouth guards for all light and heavy contact sports.
Dr. Payne was happy to offer custom-fitted mouth guards to ball players from Arden Little League where more than 300 children are on the league’s 35 teams. He encourages all little league players to wear a protective mouth guard during practice and competition. Dr. Payne uses state-of-the-art fabrication techniques and machines to heat, layer and pressurize thermoplastic material to create a snug-fitting mouth guard that does not require athletes to bite down to hold in place. This allows for athletes to breathe easily as well as talk while the mouth guard is in place. (And we all know how important shouting can be while playing sports!)
Traditionally, baseball players have not worn mouth guards, despite a large number of facial injuries, including tooth loss. We launched our mouth guard program at the opening ceremonies and signed up players for professional custom mouth guards in the hopes that mouth guard use in baseball will become the norm and not the exception.
