Launching new video: good oral health helps sports performance
This new Sports Dentistry video highlights the importance of maintaining a healthy mouth while playing sports and how this positively impacts athletic performance.
The link between good oral health and optimal sports performance may not be an obvious one, which is why this new video has been launched as part of FDI’s Sports Dentistry project. It aims to educate the general public about the basic prevention of oral diseases and the importance of protecting the mouth against sports injuries.
View, share and disseminate the video during key sporting events and competitions so that people understand the importance of good oral health to becoming a sports champion.
About the Sports Dentistry project
Sports medicine contributes to healthier athletes and better performance. In recent years, sports medicine has evolved into a multidisciplinary field that recognizes sports dentistry as a key element.
Sports dentistry is the branch of dentistry dealing with prevention and treatments of the pathologies and injuries of the oral cavity and the stomatognathic system related to sports practice. The stomatognathic system is the anatomical and functional system comprising the teeth, jaws, associated soft tissues, facial muscles and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
