Mouthguards and Prevention of Sports Injuries

The ADA has taken an active stance recognizing the preventative value of orofacial protectors, including mouth guards. Studies have consistently shown reductions in oral facial injuries with the use of properly fitted mouthguards in a wide range of sports, including basketball, baseball, football, wrestling and soccer.

Dr. Hammond will ask her patients if they participate in team sports or other activities with risk of injury to the teeth, jaw and oral soft tissues. She will help to identify those patients that would benefit the most from the use of a mouthguard. She will also educate her patients about mouthguards and orofacial facial injury risks, including appropriate guidance on mouthguard types, their rate of protection, costs and benefits.
