There are a variety of oral/facial injuries specific to athletics. One of the challenges of sport dentistry is to provide protective measures to keep sports-related injuries to a minimum. Properly fitted mouthguards are essential for all contact and non-contact sports. Frankly, the generic variety of mouthguards sold at sporting goods stores simply do not provide optimum protection and treatment for athletes. If you or your child are active in sports, please talk to us about the various options available in sports dentistry.
“It is estimated by the American Dental Association that mouthguards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year in high school and collegiate football alone. As sports dentists and health professionals, we highly recommend the use of a custom made mouthguard for both low and high impact sports.”
