Riding the wave of the Boston Bruins’ Stanley Cup win, Dental Associates of New England is sticking with an athletic theme for our June blog post.
Our very own Dr. Gerald Maher, Patriots team dentist for more than two decades, has developed the innovative Maher Mouth Guard, which aids in the prevention of concussions for all athletes participating in contact sports, from professionals to youth players.
Dr. Maher’s product which is already successfully used by the New England Patriots, numerous high school and college athletic programs, individual NFL players and a number of boxing, hockey and lacrosse professionals, is beneficial to recreational athletes as well. The weekend athlete may be at an even higher risk of sports injuries because of the lack of conditioning, training and skill. Mouth guards should also be used in practices, physical education classes and some exercise programs.
