It seems like it was just a few short months ago we could not keep a listing on the market. The house went active on the MLS, received multiple offers, and then it was gone. It felt like it was all in a matter of days, maybe even hours. I had buyers say forget it I cannot keep up with this competition, and they stopped looking. Now, it feels like houses are sitting for weeks with no movement. Uh, oh … time to panic; time to make a drastic price reduction? Before you make big decisions, know this, this cycle is normal. Phew!

As many students are training for football, baseball, hockey, soccer, and other sports, this is also the time of year for sports-related injuries. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), sports-related dental injuries send approximately 600,000 youths to the emergency room each year involving children as young as 5 years old. Prevention is a large aspect of oral health. Oral health prevention includes the prevention of injury to the mouth, teeth, neck, and jaws. In an attempt to promote awareness of facial injury prevention, five organizations have sponsored April as being the National Facial Protection Month: American Dental Association (ADA), American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the Academy for Sports Dentistry. Contact sports such as football, hockey, and basketball are common sources of oral injury; however, other sports such as gymnastics and volleyball pose a threat as well. Common head and neck injuries can include concussions, fractured teeth, oral lacerations, jaw joint sprains, and neck injuries.
