Sports dentistry is one of the most recent and upcoming field in dentistry. It mainly includes the prevention and management of athletics-related orofacial injuries and associated oral diseases. The sports or team dentist assists athletes in the prevention, treatment, and diagnosis of oral injuries. The most significant aspect in preventing sports-related orofacial injuries is wearing basic protective devices such as properly-fitting helmets, face masks and/or mouth guards. Dental injuries are the most common type of orofacial injury sustained during participation in sports. Many athletes are not aware of the health implications of a traumatic injury to the mouth or of the potential for incurring severe head and orofacial injuries while playing. The dentist can play an imperative role in informing athletes, coaches and parents about the importance of preventing orofacial injuries in sports.
So far there is no specific program available in India for sports dentistry. This program provides a structured approach to the dentist to get an overall knowledge about what are the various roles of a sports dentist. This course aims to touch the various vital aspects in the field of Sports Dentistry along with few guidelines as to how a sports dentist should manage athlete’s dento-facial injuries, fabricate mouthguards and many other things like substance abuse counselling, correct dietary guidance considering the athlete’s requirement that would prevent damage to oral health, etc. With a blend of theoretical knowledge, our expert video lecture series and our interactive online and off-line workshops, this course provides the best knowledge in sports dentistry.
