Abstract

Children and teens are more prone to injuries while playing, with most of the impact taken by the face especially the jaws and the teeth. The most significant factor in preventing sports-related or recreational orofacial injuries is wearing basic protective devices such as properly fitting helmets, face masks, or mouth guards. A mouth guard, custom-fitted by your dentist and worn every time you play or train, will protect against dental injury. Mouth guards are available in 3 different variants which are stock, self-adapting, custom-made mouth guards. The benefits far exceed the expenditure when considering the fees and discomfort associated with a traumatic dental injury
