Proposition d’un protocole de réalisation d’une protection intra-buccale chez des patients en cours de traitement orthodontique

Abstract : Patients practicing contact sports are advised to use mouthguard to prevent and limit oro-facial traumas. Orthodontic devices are one of the risk factors for injuries during sporting activities. The aim consisted to make a normalized custom mouthguard, taking in consideration alveolodental modification for a young patient undergoing orthodontic treatment and practicing rugby. Only one mouthguard was made, incorporating planed dental motions. We submitted to the teaching hospital of Bordeaux a procedure through a clinical case from 2013 November to 2014 October. The main assessment criterion was that the mouthguard provided an effective protection throughout the orthodontic treatment without damaging orthodontics. A patient was 15 years old, undergoing orthodontic treatment and practicing rugby. The results, about the main criterion, were that not any injury arose and that the orthodontic treatment was successfully conducted in sp! ite of the mouthguard size. This study shows that the inclusion of the motion envelope into the mouthguard is beneficial, on condition that the limit of 1,5 to 2 mm for the dental motions is respected. It would be interesting to apply our protocol through a numeric system, when the technological evolution will allow it.
