Sports Dentistry

What is Sports Dentistry?

Sports dentistry is the field of dentistry that deals with preventing and managing sports-related injuries of the face and mouth. It includes the teeth, jaws, facial muscles and soft tissues, and the temporomandibular joint or TMJ (lower jaw connecting to skull).

One of the most vulnerable body targets in sports is the mouth and face; protecting them is paramount. Sports dentistry, a branch of dentistry, diagnoses and treats any orofacial injuries or diseases due to sports. It also educates sportspeople on how to take precautions, stay safe, and safeguard their mouth and face during play.

What Are the Types of Sports Dental Injuries?

There are several types of dental risks during play, and some of the most common include the following:

  • Broken tooth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Chipped root
  • Fractured tooth root
  • Knocked-out tooth
  • Tooth dislocation
  • Tooth intrusion (when the dislocated tooth intrudes into the jawbone)
  • Torn gums/cuts/gum contusion
