This first webinar will delve into the management of oro-facial trauma in athletes. Specialists will review the effects of oral health on athletic performance and wellbeing, and explore the intersection of dentistry with other fields managing sports injuries and performance in athletes. Dentistry has historically been forgotten when it comes to sports medicine. However, it is now being recognised as an important element of athlete well-being with teams and coaches advocating dental health when defining coaching and training strategies.

During this webinar you will:

  • Describe dental and facial injuries commonly sustained during sports participation
  • Discuss the effects of dental and facial trauma in athletes
  • Understand key management principles for managing facial injuries in sports
