Author information

Department of Pediatric Dentistry, University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, Pennsylvania, USA.


Many sports-related traumatic dental injuries are preventable with the use of appropriate, properly fitted athletic equipment such as helmets, facemasks, and mouthguards. This article presents information regarding the current generation of athletic mouthguards, and issues a challenge for the development of future independent scientific research that will transform current clinical empiricism into evidence based knowledge in sports dentistry.
