Sports dentistry is a newly emerging branch of dentistry that can help to promote the athletic ability and agility in people who undergo the treatments. Sports dentistry deals with preventing facial injuries acquired during the playing of sport but it also has been found to enhance one’s athletic abilities.
For instance, a misaligned jaw could be the reason why some people do not excel at sport in the same way other do. Science suggests that the misalignment of the lower jaw and its muscles could be responsible for postural problems and poor athletic performance. According to neuromuscular dentist, if the musculature of the head, neck and jaw are in alignment, muscle recruitment is improved throughout the body, leading to increased balance, power and strength.
If you suffer from poor posture or less than favorable athletic prowess, sports dentistry might be right for you. Alternatively, if you are an athlete consistently plagued with injuries to the mouth and jaw, this type of dentistry can aid you in a quick recovery and it can also prevent injuries.
According to a 2007 press release, 90 percent of the United Kingdom’s population have a lower jaw that is not in the optimal position, meaning that just 10 percent of us may be utilising our natural athletic abilities. There are many ways that this problem can be rectified; sports dentistry helps to bring these remedies and this problem and other similar problems to the forefront of our minds.
Another aim of sports dentistry is for the treatment of injuries to the mouth and face sustained during the play of sport. Sports dentistry is right for you if you have been the victim of a mouth injury received during playing sport or a similar type of injury. Sports dentistry predominantly deals with knocked out teeth, of which, over 5 million are lost annually due to sporting events. Of course, sports dentistry deals with other types of dental injuries as well as tooth loss.
Consult your dentist to determine if sports dentistry would be the most effective treatment for you if you have suffered from a sport related dental injury or have any concerns regarding the practice.
