An Illinois hospital study says that almost 10% of all dental
injuries are sports related. In collision sports, such as football,
hockey and boxing, the risk of injury is obvious. Athletes who
participate in these sports are required to wear protective gear.
However, in contact sports such as basketball, baseball, soft-
ball,wrestling, soccer and volleyball, protective mouth gear is Nelson Hersh
not mandatory and there appears to be little awareness of the
risks of dental injury.
Licensed Specialist
Almost 12 percent of male athletes between ages 12 and 18
reported oral injuries. 32% of those were associated with football, 21% with bas-
ketball, 18% with baseball. In a survey of 1,020 Florida high-school varsity basket-
ball players, 33% reported sustaining at least one oral-facial injury during a season.
Of all basketball injuries, 34% were oral-facial.

Using mouthguards reduces injuries. Before mandatory oral-facial protection in
football (1962) 50% of all injuries in football were oral-facial. After required use of
protection, 3% of football injuries were oral-facial. It is estimated that more than
200,000 oral-facial injuries are prevented each year because of mandatory wear in
football. Properly fitted mouthguards reduce the rate of dental and jaw injuries
during sports.

Volunteer use of mouthguards in sports is rare and shows no signs of improving.
95% of coaches said they believe mouthguards prevent oral injuries, but only 16%
required mouthguard use in sports other than football. Mouthguards help prevent
injuries and should be used by all athletes that are in contact sports without excep-
tion, including those wearing braces.
