Personal protective goggles made by the dentist are the basic elements for protection. Athletes should use protective goggles made according to their own mouth size during training and matches. In some sports such as American football, hockey, etc., in addition to protective gear, the use of helmets and face masks is mandatory.
Before the start of the professional match season, it is very important to examine the athlete, to perform the necessary radiological xaminations and to apply the necessary treatments.Treatment of decayed teeth, pulling out swinging teeth, withdrawing problematic twenty-year old teeth, implanting toothless cavities, applying porcelain crowns and bridges, and
protecting teeth are among the necessary treatment principles. During the season, these treatments will create discomfort for the athlete’s success and career will affect negatively. Therefore, the season should be completed months before the start.
