A high school basketball player is fighting for a rebound. Suddenly she is
struck by the opponent's elbow and her neck is jerked back and immediately she
feels for her mouth. A small amount of blood appears and the certified athletic
trainer runs out to assess the injury. Teammates search the floor for either
teeth or pieces of teeth, which have been knocked out. Parents watch helplessly
from the stands wondering what has happened. Unfortunately, this is not an
unusual scenario dental equipment.
Injuries are a part of sports and injuries in and around the mouth (oral-facial
injuries) are very common. This basketball example does however, bring several
questions immediately to mind. First, is treatment needed immediately or can it
wait? What is the correct immediate and definitive treatment? Can the player
keep playing or when can the player return to normal play? Is specific
protection necessary for the injured area? Should protection have been provided
to this individual before this ever happened? And finally, is my dentist able to
answer all of these questions and properly handle sports injuries? In addition,
sports dentistry is concerned with subjects such as smokeless tobacco abuse,
nutritional issues such as the erosive potential of sports drinks, substance
abuse in athletes and many other topics which can be connected in some way to
athletes and their overall health. What should athletes, parents, trainers,
coaches and care providers know about sports injuries and their prevention? This
article will summarize and answer a few of the many questions, which arose when
our fictitious basketball player was injured. Risky Business Nobody goes into
sports with the idea of intentionally injuring him or herself, but even if not
intentional, many injuries are preventable. “Oral-facial” injuries, those
involving trauma to the mouth and face, can have significant negative
functional, esthetic, and psychological effects both on children and adults.
Only recently, has greater attention focused on this critical but often
overlooked segment of injuries. While oral-facial injuries are rarely life
threatening, they can be debilitating and costly over the life of a person. In
fact, it's estimated that over a quarter of dental-related injuries occur while
playing sports. A recent study on consumer products and activities associated
with dental injuries to children treated in United States emergency rooms
between 1990-2003 indicated that: An average of 22,000 dental injuries annually
occurred among children less than 18 years of age. Children with primary (baby)
teeth, less than 7 years old sustained over half of the dental injuries in
activities associated with home furniture. Outdoor recreational products and
activities were associated with the largest number of dental injuries among
children ages 7-12 and almost half of these were associated with bicycles. Among
children with permanent (adult) teeth age 13-17, sports-related
products/activities were associated with the highest number of dental injuries.
Of all sports, baseball and basketball were associated with the largest number
of dental injuries. contra angle handpiece Additional Questions About Field-Side Dental Injuries Will
it hurt to have my child's teeth fixed and how much will it cost? These are
often the first questions asked when an injured person finally gets to the
dentist's office. As a general rule the first obligation of any health
professional is to relieve pain. This can often be accomplished immediately with
topical anesthetics followed by local anesthesia, which will give several hours
of relief, followed by taking pain killing and anti-inflammatory drugs like
ibuprofen. Once comfortable, your dentist should discuss all treatment options
together with their risks, benefits and alternatives including costs. Are my
kids more prone to injury because their front teeth protrude? Yes, people who have upper front teeth that are very
prominent or protrude are more at risk for injury, whether sports related or
otherwise. The first line of defense is to wear a mouthguard when there is an
associated risk of injury with any activity; the second and more long-term
consideration is orthodontic treatment (braces) to move the teeth into a better
position and potentially out of harm's way. Orthodontic treatment usually will
result in both better biting function and improved appearance, as well as
contributing to better overall dental health and wellbeing. If replanted (adult)
teeth in adolescents have a short survival rate, why bother? Good point, but
there are many important considerations. Here are just a couple of the more
major ones. Firstly, a shortened survival rate is usually measured in many
years, although if not replanted immediately — within five minutes, a tooth will
not last a lifetime implant
. Secondly, in a younger (growing) person — with teeth developing and
erupting, jaws and face growing — it's best to replant the tooth and wait at
least until maturity before considering a more long term tooth replacement
