Sport Dentistry Facts

Dental injuries are the most common type of orofacial injury sustained during participation in sports. The majority of these injuries are preventable by wearing a Sportsguard Mouthguard.

Every athlete involved in a contact sport has about 10% chance per season of an orofacial injury. Every professional athlete has a 35-56% chance of sustaining such an injury during their athletic career.

More than 5 million teeth are knocked out each year during sport-related activities. This can help be prevented by wearing an athletic mouthguard like Sportsguard Mouthguards.

An athlete is sixty times more likely to sustain damage to their teeth when not wearing a protective mouthguard.

The cost of a fractured tooth is many times greater than the cost of a dentist diagnosed and professionally designed mouthguard.
