From: Are oral health and fixed orthodontic appliances associated with sports injuries and postural stability in elite junior male soccer players?

Number of sport injuries past year Oral Status
Both GP/DC and FOA absent N (%), ASR Current or past FOA N (%), ASR GP/DC present FOA absent, N (%), ASR
0 20 (42%) +  1.9 26 (35%) +  0.9 12 (19%) - 2.6
1. 13 (27%) - 0.3 20 (27%) - 0.5 21 (33%) +  0.9
2–3 13 (27%) - 0.8 17 (23%) - 2.1 29 (45%) +  2.9
4 or more 2 (4%) - 1.3 12 (16%) +  3.0 2 (3%) - 1.9
  1. ASR Adjusted Standardized Residual (|ASR| > 1,96 indicates cell with observed frequency significant different from the expected frequency); GP/DC Gum problems and/or dental caries; FOA Fixed Orthodontic Appliance; IFPY is significantly associated with oral status (χ2(6 df) = 19.9, p < .005)
