Nos últimos anos aumentou o número de praticantes de desportos de contacto, assim como o risco de traumatismos dento-alveolares, articulares e faciais. O uso de protectores bucais individualizados confortáveis, que permitam a respiração e a comunicação, neste tipo de desportos é fundamental. Estes dispositivos fornecem assim várias vantagens em termos de protecção dentária, dos tecidos moles e fracturas mandibulares, e protecção da articulação temporo-mandibular. Neste trabalho, propomo-nos a explorar todos estes aspectos, descrevendo a técnica de confecção deste tipo de aparelho no consultório médico-dentário, não esquecendo as novas técnicas sugeridas em estudos recentes.

Palavras-chave: protector bucal; trauma oro-facial; desportos de contacto.

 

With the increase of the number of contact sports practitioners, the risk of dental, articular and/or facial trauma as also increased throughout the years. The use of individualized and comfortable mouthguards, that make breading and communication easy, is essential in all contact sports. They offer several advantages protecting the teeth, soft tissues and temporo-mandibular articulation, and preventing mandibular fractures. In this work, we will try to explore these aspects of mouthguards and describe the standard and new techniques, presented in recent studies, to make them.

Key-words: mouthguard; orofacial trauma; contact sports.
