Epidemiology of orofacial sports-related injuries

Dent Clin North Am. 2000 Jan;44(1):1-18, v.


Orofacial sports-related injuries occur across a wide range of both organized and unorganized sports. Different types of injuries are associated with each sport. The current database for incidence, prevalence, severity, and causality is found only in published reports and scientific articles. Careful analysis and use of recent data are necessary because rule changes in sports have made the application of outdated information to current sports issues obsolete.
