Custom Mouthguards Prevent More Injuries
from Vail Daily
The field of sports dentistry continues to grow as more and more people participate in extreme sports popularized by events such as the X-Games. Sports dentistry is essentially the prevention and treatment of oral and facial injuries. Dental injuries are the most common type of facial injuries for athletes and the majority of these injuries are actually preventable. Young athletes who have a tooth knocked out can anticipate upwards of $20,000 worth of lifetime dental costs associated with just that one tooth. In addition to these expenses, the person can suffer through lost work time, emotional and psychological scars and pain.
