Sports Dentistry

Sports dentistry is one of the most significant up and coming fields in modern dentistry.

Typical dental trauma injury from a hockey stickThe main focus is the prevention and management of sports related orofacial injuries and associated diseases. The sports dentist supports athletes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral disease and injuries.

A crucial role is played in informing athletes, coaches and parents about the importance of preventing oral health problems and trauma.

As a former rugby player with GHK and Glasgow Hawks, Mike Blackie started The Park Practice Dental Clinic in 1999. The practice has a holistic approach to its patients and has always had a high proportion of patients with sporting backgrounds.

Over the years the team at The Park Practice has treated various trauma injuries in professional rugby players and have passionately encouraged rugby and hockey players, especially, to wear correctly fitted sports mouth guards.

Mike also has a good understanding of the needs of teams participating in multi-sport Games, having worked as part of the medical team for the London 2012 Olympic Games supporting combat sports and was also involved at Glasgow 2014 with Rugby Sevens.

Through his work Mike has developed a passionate interest in the oral health impact on performance in professional sport and as a result has worked with two of Scotland’s Premiership Football Clubs.

“My role has developed to include oral health assessments, education on the potential impact of sugar levels on performance and increasing the understanding of the impact of trauma injuries. Whilst we are still some way off from persuading all athletes in contact or combat sports to wear proper dentally fitted sports mouth guards, thankfully awareness of the benefits is increasing."
