If you participate in sports, you probably have gear that you must bring to every game and practice. Just as protective equipment such as helmets and knee pads are part of this gear, mouth guards should also always be included. It’s estimated that nearly 40% of all dental injuries occur while playing sports. Since mouth guards were made a mandatory part of American football, about 200,000 injuries to the mouth and teeth have been prevented each year. This should speak to the vital role they play in keeping athletes safe.
Mouth guards are available ready-made in stores and pharmacies, but these can often be ill-fitting and uncomfortable. Custom-fit mouth guards offer the best protection because they fit the mouth properly. This also means that they are more comfortable than store-bought ones.
Even if your sport is not considered a contact sport like football or boxing, oral injuries can still occur. Players are susceptible to injuries from equipment, the ground, or other surfaces, so mouth guards are highly recommended to protect the mouth and face.
