Stoute Dental – Custom Fabricated Sports Mouthguards Crofton Maryland
According to the American Dental Association, more than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented annually in this country by sports mouthguards. While this is an impressive preventative figure, it is estimated by the National Youth Sports Foundation that more than 5 million teeth will be knocked out in sporting activities this year. These oral traumas will happen to children, high school and collegiate athletes. In fact, dental injuries are the most common type of orofacial injury sustained during participation in sports.
The benefits of sports mouthguard protection has been well documented. In 1995, Dr. Raymond Flander’s study on the high incidence of oral injuries showed that in football, where mouthguards are mandatory, only .07 percent of all injuries involved teeth and the oral cavity. Conversely, in basketball, where mouthguards are not required, 34 percent of all injuries to players involved teeth and/or the oral cavity. Obviously, dental injuries could be significantly reduced if children, teenagers and adults who partake in soccer, volleyball, baseball, softball, rollerblading, skateboarding, martial arts, boxing, hockey, kickboxing and mountain biking wore custom made mouthguards.
