Can athletes benefit from MiCD and bioactive composites


Sports dentistry deals with the prevention and treatment of dental injuries and oral diseases associated with sports and exercise. As people strive for healthy lifestyles and engage in sports activities either at a recreational or competitive level, their oral health concerns should be addressed with a comprehensive need-based preventive approach with minimally invasive treatment techniques. 

Selfie culture is omnipresent and Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Dentistry (MiCD) can be easily incorporated within sports dentistry to provide young aspiring athletes with perfect smiles that they seek for their media profiles. 

This presentation will showcase the specificity of dental treatment required for athletes in general and provide insights on the influence of their daily calorie intake and composite behaviour, the role of bioactive materials in aesthetic corrections and managing dental trauma using minimally invasive treatment with a focus on prevention of oral disease.
