Dental Injuries in Sports

Dental Injuries in Sports


When we talk about sports medicine, we think about injuries to all sorts of structures in our body…the muscles and tendons, ligaments, bones, the brain…..but what about your teeth? You’ve all seen professional hockey players with their jack-o-lantern type smiles as a badge of honor. What do we need to be thinking about in sports with our teeth and how can we protect your pearly whites? Today on the podcast we talk with a dentist about the common injuries to the teeth we may see in sports.

The Guest Featured Inside this Program


Paul Nativi - A Guest on The Pediatric Sports Medicine Podcast with Dr. Mark HalsteadPaul Nativi

Dr. Paul Nativi is a graduate of the Washington University School of Dental Medicine. He started the sports dentistry programs at St Louis University in 1982 and at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville in 2009 and continues to direct both programs. He is also the team dentist at both universities. He served as the president for the Academy of Sports Dentistry from 2011-2012. He has been a guest speaker at my annual sports medicine update 3 times now, which I think makes him the most frequent speaker from outside of my institution at my conference.
