Sports Dentistry is the treatment and prevention of Orofacial athletic injuries and related oral disease and manifestations. Preseason screenings and examinations are essential in preventing injuries. Examinations include health histories, at risk dentitions, diagnosis of cavities, bite relationships, orthodontics, loose teeth, dental habits, crown and bridgework, missing teeth, artificial teeth, and the possible need for extractions for orthodontic concerns or wisdom teeth. Determination of the need for a specific type and design of athletic mouthguard for injury prevention is made at this time. Here in Morrilton, Dr. Dixon is specifically trained on the prevention of sports injuries.
