Scottsdale Dentist: What is the Most Dangerous Sport?

The most dangerous sport in America – resulting in 50% of catastrophic high school age injuries – is cheerleading! Amongst women in the country, 66-70% of sport related injuries are from cheerleading alone.

Injuries sustained in cheerleading include:

  • strains and sprains
  • back injuries
  • concussions

With these kinds of injuries, it is often accompanied with dental trauma. Dental trauma may cause more than temporary pain, such as need for treatment and rehabilitation.
