Author information

Division of Dental Health, Illinois Department of Public Health, Springfield 62761-0001, USA.


This pilot study of sports-related injuries in Illinois confirms that football players do not encounter orofacial injuries as often as other athletes. The authors attribute this to mandatory use of faceguards and mouth protectors in football and recommend that mouthguards be used by all players of contact sports.
