Sports dentistry is one of the most recent and forthcoming field in dentistry. Sports dentistry is the branch of dentistry dealing with precluding and treatments of the pathologies and damages of the oral cavity and the stomatognathic system bonded to sports practice. The stomatognathic system is the anatomical and functional system consisting the teeth, jaws, associated soft tissues, facial muscles and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The sports dentist assists athletes in the prevention, treatment, and resolution of oral injuries. The most suggestive aspect in preventing sports-related orofacial injuries is wearing basic defensive devices such as properly-fitting helmets, face masks and/or mouth guards.
