Dentist Narciso Carreiro, from Clinico Carreiro and Teza in the capital of Lyon, explains the importance of a healthy mouth for preventing injuries and improving athletic performance: “Folk wisdom actually bought into animals by first observing their mouths to see if they were. good performance. To give expected performance »
Can the mouth prevent or warn of injuries in the world of sports? This is the case and goes even further: The mouth is the mirror of the body, a kind of control panel that warns of various problems, explains dentist Narciso Carrero, of the Carrero & Teza Clinic.
It is a world increasingly important in elite sport but also in everyday life, and Carrero explains why: “The infection in the mouth generates toxins that look like feces of bacteria and reach the bloodstream, which travel throughout the body until they cling to a muscle area where, in a moment of exertion or Tension, can cause injuries.
Not only in this aspect, the dentist explains, because the fact that not biting well can cause back problems or posterior regressive cruciate syndrome that generates pain and discomfort in the entire back of the body that “does not allow you to achieve optimal performance”.
“Footballers fix their mouths not for aesthetic reasons, but for athletic performance.”
Giving an example that popular wisdom called for looking at the teeth of animals before buying them at a cattle fair, he takes this to human health…and sport. “The importance of oral health is rooted in public awareness and sports. There is a growing awareness of its importance, such as nutrition or rest,” he noted.
He recalls cases of footballers whose poor oral health has thwarted signings with important clubs and Carrero insists that “football players who fix their mouths do so not for an aesthetic or image issue, but for the sake of athletic performance.” Also in amateur sports where “runners” and famous athletes strive to improve their times and “know that good oral and bite health helps improve their performance and have perfect biomechanics.”
In the global elite of sports, especially football, the character of a sports dentist has already been around for 10 or 15 years, says Narciso Carrero, who insists on the idea that oral health is taken into account when hiring players. “Today we begin to listen and understand. Big clubs already own it and that tends to spread. Health care usually begins in the elite ranks, continues through amateur sport, and eventually reaches the entire community.”
Sports dentist is the next step for Lyonnais
And in the Lyon clubs? Carrero acknowledges that oral health is gaining space in the city’s top clubs who “review their players every six months or every year”, something that also happens in youth teams.
“It’s a necessary profile,” said the dentist at the Carrero & Tezza clinic in Leon, and predicts that in the coming years, clubs like Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa or Abanca Ademar may incorporate this figure into their teams. Good oral health balances the body and improves athletic performance. It was concluded that the mouth occupies more space in human health than it does in the body.
