While tooth decay is the most common reason that young adults lose, their teeth the second most common reason for young adults who would otherwise have healthy teeth to have tooth loss would be from playing full contact sports. High contact sports like football, hockey, boxing, and wrestling are just a few sports that young adults participate in while they are in school and college that causes them to loss one or more of their teeth. While many of these sports require players to wear protective head gear and mouth guards sometimes the impact of the hit is so vicious that it results in a permanently lost or chipped tooth that will last the person for the rest of their life.
