Mouth Guards in Sports A Necessary Piece of Equipment!
Youth and adolescent sports participation has grown steadily over the years. It is estimated that 20 to 25 million youths participate in competitive sports. As a result of this growth in participation levels, incidence of injury has also increased. Some have reported sports to account for approximately 36% of all unintentional injuries to children and adolescents. Of those injuries, 10-20%of all sports related injuries are maxillofacial injuries according to the AmericanDental Association.
The National Youth Sports Foundation for Safety reports dental injuries as the most common type of orofacial injury sustained during sports participation. They contend that an athlete is 60 times more likely to sustain damage to the teeth when not wearing a protective mouth guard. Often times these injuries will result in permanent damage to the oral structure which will require medical intervention.
Avoid and minimize those injuries by using a properly fitted sport mouth guard.
