An athletic splint, (mouthguard) is called the removable dental appliance, that is fitted to the athlete’s upper jaw teeth, preventing possible injuries related to teeth loss, jaw fractures, damages to the temporomandibular joint as well as to gum injuries and other soft molecules of the oral cavity.
Anyone who engages in sports activities, women and men, children, adolescents and adults, amateur and professional athletes, knows very well that during their sports activity the worst that can happen is not a lost game but a serious injury, that may also significantly alter their health state and the course of their everyday life.
Dangerous body areas for similar injuries, especially in sports that involve significant physical contact and pushes, crashes, collisions and falls, are the head, the facial area and the oral cavity.
It has been calculated that over 90% of children will endure an injury in the broader facial area, while the registered injuries during sports activity occupy the 10-39% of the total dental injuries in children and hit mostly the ages of 7-11 years old.
Athletes that do not wear an athletic splint become 60 times more likely to risk teeth damage and it is statistically proven that, the application of athletic splints worldwide prevent now more than half a million injuries per year.
