The Importance of Sports Dentistry
Sports dentistry has emerged with the development of modern dentistry. Today, the importance of athletes having healthy teeth, improving oral health and at the same time providing smile aesthetics is increasing. Obtaining preventive dentistry services in order to prevent tooth breakage, tooth fracture, tooth displacement and bone trauma makes a difference.
Sports Dentistry Protective Applications
In sports dentistry, protective dental appliances are used to protect the mouth and surrounding tissues of the athletes against possible traumas. Protective teethers have the feature of preventing serious injuries to the teeth, lips, cheeks, jawbones or tongues of athletes. Protective teethers or, in other words, athlete's plaques can be bought from sports equipment stores or can be prepared individually.

Our athlete dentists take the measurements of the upper jaws of our athletes and model them. Essix prepares the plaque and prepares the protective teether appropriately for the athletes also adopts the principle of patient-specific service in our sports dentistry services.
Sports dentistry services also require control processes. The rapid functioning of the digestive systems of individuals who do sports and the increase in gastric acid secretion threaten oral and dental health in the long term. For this reason, amateur or professional athletes should go to the dentist regularly. Thus, oral health can be protected by preventing the abrasion caused by acids on the back surface of the teeth over time.
