La prise en charge de la santé buccodentaire du sportif en France : état des lieux

Abstract : Background and objectives: 65% of French people aged 15 and above practice an intense physical or sport activity at least once a week. Some of these activities and their level of intensity increase the risks for oral health: trauma, specific food hygiene…The aim of this study is to describe the present oral health coverage of sportsmen in France. Material and methods: We conduct a cross sectional study by questioning various actors involved in this coverage (French faculties of dentistry, dental prosthetists syndicate, sports federations and their insurances). Results and conclusion: According to the results of the study, the oral health coverage in sports can be reinforced. First of all by providing a better formation for both dental surgeons and prosthetists, then in the sports federations by providing a better medical follow-up of their elites athletes and by broadcasting information and preventive message to all their followers. Besides, insurers can be part of this prevention process, by imposing the wear of mouthguards in at risks sports.
